Vintro Hotel South Beach is a new boutique property, and a part of an emerging brand, scheduled to open fall of 2013. The hotel will offer 54 custom appointed rooms including 6 distinctive suites. A refuge in the heart of the “new” South Beach, the hotel is ideally located 2 blocks west of Collins Avenue and the beach, while also steps away from the Bass Museum, Miami City Ballet, and The New World Symphony.
Take one part wine, one part vintage, add a good dose of relaxation and Vintro Hotel presents an interesting new face in Miami Beach. Further creating a distinctive lobby, the contemporary setting showcases a towering wine wall that is at the heart of the Vintro brand. The restaurant and bar will feature an interactive wine menu, an eclectic array of taste and share plates, signature main courses, a charcuterie selection and global cheese flights. Satisfying the novice and connoisseur alike, wines from around the globe are offered by the glass or bottle which underscores the name Vintro.
“This will be the first of the new Vintro branded hotels, which is designed to revisit the roots of the boutique hotel revolution,” says Robert Todak, President of Tailored Hospitality International (THI). Todak’s vision is to “…recapture the essence of the classic boutique hotel to differentiate Vintro Hotels, appealing to savvy independent travelers, tired of the homogenization of what once was a dynamic hospitality option.”
Upon entering the lobby bar, the seductive ambiance and white oak immediately sets the hotel apart from Miami’s traditional minimalist atmosphere. The space evokes a perfect segue to an interior courtyard setting that then opens up to alfresco dining on the newly restored Collins Canal. Here you’ll find rusticated stone, vertical gardens and communal bars that intertwine to create a vibrant and convivial space for dining, drinking and conversing.
Guest rooms are designed with total comfort in mind. A radiant citrus color palette in lemon and tangerine united with a sleek custom design creates a fresh and appealing sanctuary. Each room features the latest in technology and comforts, revitalizing rain showers, natural bath amenities, plush robes and towels. Complimentary Wi-Fi, 50” LED monitors, and a business center will be available so that guests are never out of touch with family, friends and the office.
The rooftop lounge takes the Miami scene to a sleek, blissful refuge. Leisurely pursuits include enjoying some fun in the sun with a freshwater pool that invites you to take a cool and refreshing dip or enjoy a retro game of shuffleboard. Day or night, it’s a perfect spot to people watch while sipping on a chilled and bubbly beverage. As the sun sets, the bar and lounge transition into an animated and star filled scene within a setting that can be reserved exclusively for private events for up to 50 guests. It’s the perfect way to end your evening with a nightcap, or just kick back and enjoy the sultry Miami Beach nights. Situated alongside the Collins Canal, the terrace at Vintro Hotel South Beach offers a breathtaking view, inviting guests to indulge in an extensive collection of wines and small plates. The terrace also offers a particular luxury for the cigar aficionado by featuring an array of fine cigars. The Park Avenue veranda is ideal for hosting special events that can accommodate up to 45 guests and features a retractable awning.
Vintro Hotels is actively seeking developments in major markets that include Washington D.C., New Orleans and New York City. Tailored Hospitality International will manage and assist with the expansion and development of the brand. Scheduled for opening summer of 2015 is Vintro Hotel Ft. Lauderdale. Adding a distinctive mark to the city’s skyline, the majority of the 72 rooms will feature ocean views, while the top floor will feature a restaurant offering sweeping views of the Atlantic coastline.
