Hotel Victor, located along buzzing Ocean Drive in South Beach originated in the 1930s as one of the original art deco Gregorian style buildings that drape the streets of Miami Beach. This year, the hotel went through a full renovation, upgrading all guestrooms and public spaces.
"Every piece of furniture was designed specifically for this hotel," says Claudia Marulanda, director of sales/marketing.
The color palate transitioned from dark purples, reds and blacks to softer shades of violet, ivory and cream. The expansive lobby space uses soft woods and chrome furnishings.
While lounging in one of the new cabanas in the recently-renovated pool deck, enjoy sweeping views of the sandy beaches and candy colored buildings along Ocean Drive.
Head out onto the streets on rentable bikes that are available through the concierge.
Within the next few months, Hotel Victor will expand its lobby space and debut Sushi Mi Casa restaurant and renovations to Bice Italian restaurant.
The independent owners also required ownership of the iconic Versace Mansion, which will be the new home for special meetings and events for hotel guests.
