Luxury Hotels: With an impressive location overlooking Biscayne Bay, the Viceroy Miami is one of the newest — and certainly the hottest — luxury hotel to hit downtown Miami. The hotel, which made its debut in 2009, is the culmination of some of the best talent in the industry. The combined efforts of South Florida’s most prominent developer, forward-thinking architects, renowned interior design team, and of course the award-winning hospitality of the Viceroy brand, has ultimately created a 50-story pinnacle of luxury.
The Viceroy Miami is more than just a luxury hotel, serving as an iconic landmark destination. The hotel comprises one of the three buildings that make up the 10-acre ICON Brickell, a unique residential development located at the gateway to Miami’s financial district.
Designed by acclaimed interior designer, Kelly Wearstler, the Viceroy Miami embodies the essence of South Florida inside and out. Wearstler tastefully combined modern sophistication and exotic Asian influences throughout the hotel lobby, signature restaurant, event spaces, exclusive rooftop lounge, as well as each of the 162 guestrooms and suites. Sheathed in a rich color palette designed to offset classic forms and finishes, the hotel’s beautifully appointed one- and two-bedroom suites feature convenience kitchens, iPod docking stations, an organic minibar and coffee bar, an extensive film library, a one-touch guest services system, and Sferra linens and custom-designed plush robes.
Located on the 15th floor, the Viceroy’s signature Eos Restaurant serves up award-winning Mediterranean cuisine prepared by world-renowned Chef Michael Psilakis. The restaurant’s 16-seat private balcony provides panoramic views of the Miami skyline, and offers direct access to the two-acre outdoor “living room,” which unites the ICON towers and provides an endless amount of entertainment options.
After an unforgettable dining experience, guests can make their way up to Club 50, an exclusive indoor-outdoor rooftop lounge perched high up on the hotel’s 50th floor. By day, hotel guests and ICON Brickell residents can be found lounging poolside, but when the sun sets, all bets are off as Club 50 transforms into one of Miami’s hottest nightspots.
The expansive open-air deck also houses a 28,000-square-foot urban spa and state-of-the-art fitness center. Centered around a 5,000-square-foot Water Lounge or “floating library,” complete with three hot-and-cold plunge pools, a wading pool, and waterborne sofas, the full-service spa features 10 treatment rooms, a redwood sauna, a eucalyptus-infused steam room, “his” and “hers” relaxation areas, and a screening room for guest speakers.
Having already earned its fair share of awards and accolades from notable travel authorities such as Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure Magazine, The Viceroy Miami is poised to become South Florida’s hottest luxury lifestyle destination.
