Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach – the first US property in COMO Hotels and Resorts’ portfolio – is now open. With direct access to the beach, the hotel offers 74 rooms with views of the Atlantic or Lake Pancoast, private swimming pool, two restaurants, a gin bar and the COMO Shambhala Urban Escape Spa. To celebrate the opening guests can take advantage of a special ‘Grand Opening Rate’, with prices from US$299 per night for a City Room when booked before 30 June 2014. Alternatively, guests can enjoy 15 per cent off the COMO daily rate when they choose the ‘Advance Purchase’ option when they reserve and pay a minimum of seven days prior to arrival.
Standing out amongst the ‘party hotels’ along the beach strip, Metropolitan Miami Beach offers a cocoon from the city’s energy, with COMO’s service, high-quality cuisine and signature wellness centre forming a key part of the guest experience. Interiors are by the Italian designer Paola Navone, who preserved the hotel’s Art Deco heritage and contrasted it with an urban, contemporary spirit in shades of peppermint green and dusky grey.
The hotel features two restaurants: The Traymore (its headline restaurant) showcasing Floridian seafood with an emphasis on fine dining and traditional service, while the poolside bar restaurant is more relaxed, with wood-baked pizzas and easygoing pick-up food. Additionally, the Traymore Bar is home to Miami Beach’s first Gin Club, offering monthly events and tastings.
The COMO Shambhala Urban Escape features four treatment rooms and a rooftop hydrotherapy pool.
