The original Cadillac Hotel dates back to Miami’s Art Deco heyday and was designed by renowned architect of the time Roy France. In 2018, interior design firm Bill Rooney Studio renovated the property, reopening it as a member of Marriot’s Autograph Collection. Rooney made an effort to preserve the hotel’s Art Deco details, keeping the original terrazzo floors in the bright, airy lobby, then adding plenty of ambient lighting and lush greenery. Claim a chair on the wraparound mezzanine above the lobby for prime people watching, or head out to one of the property’s two pools—one for adults only and one for families—where you’ll also find a Sun Bum sunscreen bar. When hunger strikes, head to the seafood-focused Bungalow by the Sea just off the main pool, or Donna Mare Trattoria, which serves Italian fare like pizzas, pasta, and light salads in a wood-paneled space with rattan chairs and marble tabletops. The beach is just below, with lounge chairs, umbrellas, cabanas, and kid’s toys available for use.
After a long day in the sun, retreat to your light-filled room, done up in white stone floors and white walls featuring Art Deco–inspired moldings. Gold and blue accents complete the look, while bathrooms feature blue palm–covered wallpaper behind the vanity. For more space, book one of the suites, which come with separate living rooms and balconies.
