The Most Exciting Miami Hotel Openings of 2016

Page 2 of 2

Nobu Hotel at the Eden Rock (Mid-Beach)
Opening in fall 

Yes, this is a hotel within a hotel that's a brand extension of a chain of high-priced sushi joints co-owned by Robert De Niro. It works at Las Vegas' Ceaser's Palace, and they hope it'll work at Miami Beach's Eden Rock. The subhotel will take up the Eden Roc's South Tower and will blend the Japanese restaurant's aesthetics with the Roc's classic Miami Beach vibe. 

Four Seasons Surf Club (Surfside)
Opening in fall

The Surf Club (not to be confused with the Shore Club, which itself is getting a makeover set to debut in 2018) is a historic hotel and condominium in Surfside. Winston Churchill once stayed there, but to make the most of the land around it, Four Seasons brought in Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier to design three glass midrise towers. The middle tower will serve as a Four Seasons resort. The new hotel will also feature the Churchill Bar. (Not to be confused with the Little Haiti punk club, Churchill's Pub. Seriously, would it kill some hotels to run their bar names by some locals first?) 

SLS Brickell

Well, at least the building itself is scheduled to be finished sometime this year. There's no official word yet when the hotel will open, though. When it does, it will feature interior design by Philippe Starck. 

Atton Brickell 

Yes, this is a third international brand making its debut in America in Miami this year. Atton is a Chilean chain that will set up in Brickell this spring. It will feature 275 rooms on 12 floors.
