Metropolitan by COMO Hotel Opens in Miami Beach

The Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach is now open for business.

Located on Collins Avenue and 24th Street in South Beach, the 74-room hotel occupies an original 1930s Art Deco building.  While centrally located, the feel is a true respite from the buzz and beat of South Beach: it’s right on the beach and has a private pool with cabanas and a rooftop COMO Shambhala spa.  It even has a private dock on the Intracoastal Waterway.

Interior design is by the Italian designer Paola Navone, who preserved the hotel’s Art Deco exterior and other features – such as the lobby’s terrazzo floor – and contrasted it with urbane, contemporary interiors in shades of peppermint green and dusky grey, with surfaces of cool white marble and shining chrome.

The hotel has two restaurants, including The Traymore, showcasing Floridian seafood such as stone crab, Key West pink shrimp and yellow tail snapper.  At the poolside restaurant – open only to hotel guests – diners can enjoy pizzas from the brick oven or graze on crudo while relaxing in a cabana.  The Traymore Bar will have over 30 artisanal gins.

The rooftop COMO Shambhala Urban Escape spa has four treatment rooms, hydrotherapy pool and juice bar with views of the ocean.  Therapies include the company’s signature COMO Shambhala Massage as well as the COMO Shambhala Sun Soother.  Each morning complimentary yoga is offered on the spa terrace overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway.

Rates begin at $499 per night for a Metropolitan Room.

Metropolitan by COMO is owned and operated by Singapore-based COMO Hotels and Resorts, which also owns the private island resort Parrot Cay by COMO in the Turks & Caicos.

Metropolitan by COMO, 2445 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL  33129, 305-695-3588 or 855-316-2666, www.comohotels.com/metropolitanmiamibeach.
