Following an extensive, multi-million dollar
renovation, the Shelborne South Beach in Miami, Florida, has been
rebranded as the Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach.
The oceanfront hotel is located on Collins
Avenue in the heart of South Beach’s Art Deco district, steps from
dining, nightlife, shopping and beaches.
The Art Deco property, designed by
architect Igor Polevitsky and later updated by Morris Lapidus,
first opened in 1940 and was known for decades as one of the most
sophisticated and popular resort destinations in South Beach.
The 200-room Shelborne Wyndham Grand features four on-site
restaurants and bars, including Morimoto South Beach,
internationally acclaimed Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s flagship
eatery in Miami; revamped guestrooms and meeting spaces designed
by Richard Mishaan; restored public areas conceived by designer
Meg Sharpe; exclusive pool and beach access; a Blue Harmony spa;
and extensive event space.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring the
Wyndham name to South Beach and it’s particularly special to do so
with such a legendary property,” said Bob Loewen, executive vice
president and chief operating officer for Wyndham Hotel Group,
which has managed the hotel’s operations since February 2013.
“This reimagined, high-end destination will offer services,
amenities and experiences that reflect Miami’s unique culture and
lifestyle, while also representing the excellence and distinctive
offerings for which Wyndham Grand properties around the world are
The hotel’s guest rooms feature decor
inspired by vintage cars from the 1950s, city or ocean views and
46-inch Interactive Smart Samsung televisions with mobile device
connectivity via the Shelborne Wyndham Grand app, which provides
guests with access to hotel amenities.
Direct beach access, located just steps from the
hotel, is available through the private beach club. An oceanfront
pool and lounge area offers drink cart service, daily activities
and exclusive, air-conditioned cabanas with entertainment centers,
full bathrooms and private mixologists.
Shelborne Wyndham Grand’s reinvention also
includes 15,000 square feet of expanded event areas that include
meeting rooms, an executive boardroom, breakout rooms, a grand
ballroom and extensive, flexible outdoor space.
