Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront renovated, to unveil oceanfront tower

The historic Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront's new 93-guestroom oceanfront tower is set to be completed this fall. Formerly known as the Cadillac Hotel, the property is known for its Art Deco architecture and landmark presence as part of the Miami Beach skyline.

Originally constructed in 1940, the 263-room hotel has undergone numerous refurbishments, including a complete restoration in 2004, and guestroom renovation in 2009, followed by the lobby and public areas in 2011. The property is under the ownership of Hersha Hospitality Trust and management by HHM.

The Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront will be greeting guests with a newly refreshed and modern look reflecting the region's style, as well as drawing from intricate details found in the "Miami" lifestyle and its Art Deco history. To start, the lobby will be more expansive, with a new 32-foot lobby bar and lounge.

A highlight of the renovation are the new guestrooms located at the oceanfront tower, which will include a palette of selections in hues and sheers that frame the view of the beach below. Overall, the concept for the renovation was to employ the motifs of the original Art Deco style reflecting the vibrancy of Miami by incorporating elements of the local beach culture.


For the MICE market, the property will have 3,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor function areas. Its renovated meeting rooms and outdoor space includes the Indian Creek Boardroom, ideal for hosting smaller groups equipped with ergonomic chairs for a board meeting of 15 with 436 square feet. In addition, there will be a brand new meeting space located in the new Oceanfront Tower slated to accommodate up to 100 with high ceilings, and 2,200 square feet of meeting space. Meeting services also feature event setup and security. Each space also offers audiovisual equipment, wireless and high-speed Internet access along with the use of the Business Center which provides services including copy/fax, messenger and translation. The hotel also has complimentary Internet access in guestrooms and the lobby.

There is also a new gym with added workout programming, and a redesigned main pool area with cabanas and a deck that fuses the outdoor space with the lounge through large operational glass panels. A new pool is also being constructed as a part of the new oceanfront tower along the beachfront by the popular boardwalk.

Additionally, the Oceanfront Surfside Tiki Bar is introducing a fresh aesthetic, including a new deck area, entrance and additions to its décor. Other dining venues are Carrabba's Italian Grill, The Market Place and Courtyard Café.
