Richard Mishaan, Meg Sharpe help renovate Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach

Wyndham Hotel Group opened the 200-room Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach in Miami Beach, Fla. The oceanfront hotel, formerly known as the Shelborne South Beach, is located on Collins Avenue in South Beach’s Art Deco district.

The Art Deco property, designed by architect Igor Polevitsky and later updated by Morris Lapidus, first opened in 1940. Owners Flag Luxury and the Galbut family completed a renovation that restored and celebrated the property’s heritage while also incorporating modern amenities such as complimentary Internet access, VIP concierge service and vintage car rental access.

Shelborne Wyndham Grand now has four on-site restaurants and bars, including Morimoto South Beach, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s flagship eatery in Miami; revamped guestrooms and meeting spaces designed by Richard Mishaan; restored public areas conceived by designer Meg Sharpe; pool and beach access; a Blue Harmony spa; and event space.
