Miami–Hilton Worldwide recently announced that Vintro Hotel South Beach has joined Hilton’s Curio Collection, making it the third Curio hotel in Florida. The brand’s other Florida locations include The Diplomat Resort & Spa Hollywood, which joined the Collection in 2014 and Triptych Miami Design District, which is set to open in late 2017/early 2018, as Commercial Property Executive previously reported.
Vintro Hotel South Beach Curio is located at 2216 Park Ave. in South Beach alongside Collins Canal, just steps away from the beach as well as entertainment and cultural centers including the Bass Museum, Miami City Ballet, The New World Symphony, and the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The 50-key Art Deco-styled hotel features a large mosaic wall in the lobby, which embodies the unique vintage design of the area while guest rooms feature original artwork, bright furnishings and voyeur showers.
The rooms and suites are equipped with WiFi, HDTV with media hub and two mini bars among others. Amenities also include a rooftop sundeck with a jetted infinity pool, complimentary bike rentals, a library and pop-up art galleries. The hotel also offers spacious suites with one or two bedrooms with direct access to the rooftop pool and sundeck as well as memorable dining experiences influenced by Mediterranean cuisine. Additionally, guests can also enjoy van shuttle services and beach kits.
“Vintro Hotel South Beach represents Curio’s spirit of individuality through local artwork located throughout the hotel, as well as its easy access for exploring the best South Beach has to offer. We’re thrilled to welcome this beautiful boutique hotel to our growing Collection, and we know guests will appreciate how the hotel has incorporated the neighborhood’s heritage into its design,” said Dianna Vaughan, global head of Curio, in prepared remarks.
The hotel’s history dates back to 1934 when it opened as Park Avenue Hotel, which housed approximately 50,000 troops during World War II. After the war, The Park Avenue Hotel added a restaurant which became a significant attraction for Miami’s upper class. The hotel later closed for 80 years and re-opened as the Vintro Hotel South Beach in 2013, bringing back its historic appeal and quickly becoming one of the top hotel destinations in Miami Beach. Since then the hotel won TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence in 2015 and was rated among the Top 25 Hotels in TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards.
Curio, along with the hotel’s ownership group, Encotel LLC. is proud to celebrate the hotel’s heritage as it joins the growing Curio Collection by Hilton.
