The Marlin Hotel, a 1939 fixture of South Beach Miami, was sold to a new unidentified owner.
Associates with EWM Realty International brokered the $9.5-million deal.
The boutique hotel at 1200 Collins Ave. has long housed South Beach Studios, where artists such as U2, Aerosmith, Bob Marley, Jay Z and Pharrell Williams have recorded. Record producer Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records, is a former owner of the property who installed the studio; he sold it in 2004.
The hotel last traded in 2009, when Brazilian retail developer Mario Valadares da Costa purchased the site for $5.5 million. He renovated the property in 2011.
