There's no longer a Gansevoort in Miami Beach. The hotel on 23rd and Collins is now known as the Perry. It's a long overdue name change as the hotel hasn't had anything to do with the owners of the original Gansevoort Hotel in New York for a few years now.

Signaling the change, the GansevoortMiamiBeach.com site is officially off the internet, while the PerrySouthBeachHotel.com is up and running.

William and Michael Achenbaum, the father-and-son team who turned the original Gansevoort into a Gotham hotspot entered the Miami market in April 2008 right in the midst of Miami's real estate meltdown. That didn't deter chic occupants like Louis Bar-Lounge, Chow by Philippe Chow, and David Barton Gym from moving into the compound.

However, less then two years later the hotel was put up for auction. The Achenbaum's, who placed the blame on business partners and weak sales on the residential side of the property, lost control. Credit Suisse seized control and put Coral Hospitality in charge of hotel management.

HotelChatter.com reports that the hotel has been sold to Starwood Capital, which operates 1Hotels and Bacarat Hotels.

The name change will also come with some renovations over the next two years.
