The historic Courtyard Cadillac Miami Beach Oceanfront in Miami Beach, Fla., announced that its new LEED certified 93-guestroom oceanfront tower was completed this December, following the completion of a $25-million restoration endeavor.
The Cadillac now has a total of 356 guestrooms, including 19 suites with ocean views, a new oceanfront salt-water pool, a gym, an updated lobby and indoor/outdoor meeting space, the renovated Carrabba's Surfside Tiki Bar and new poolside cabanas.
The renovation is a modern take on Miami's style and Art Deco history. Key changes include a more expansive lobby with a new 32-foot lobby bar entitled Lounge DeVille; redesigned main pool area, now with cabanas and a deck that fuses the outdoor space with the lounge through operational glass panels; and the addition of a gym. A new salt-water pool is also being constructed as a part of the new LEED certified Oceanfront tower sitting beachfront along the boardwalk.
Rounding out the renovation are the new guestrooms located in the Oceanfront Tower, and the hotel's restaurants – the Cadillac Café, located in the new lobby, and Carraba's Oceanfront Surfside Tiki Bar, the beachfront restaurant and bar – that have new aesthetic with upgrades. Overall, the concept for the renovation was to employ the motifs of the original Art Deco style of the property.
The hotel now offers 5,803 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and function areas, including the Chrome Boardroom that totals 525 square feet. Additionally, there is a brand new meeting space called the Golden Vee Ballroom, located in the new LEED certified Oceanfront Tower, and which can accommodate up to 120 guests. This venue has high ceilings and 2,278 square feet of meeting space that opens up to the newly constructed outdoor space called The Lawn, which totals 3,000 square feet, and is equipped with an infinity pool and nine full sized cabanas.
