There something about Miami Beach that seduces everyone the moment they arrive. For me it’s the first sight of a majestic palm tree reaching up to a clear blue sky, cruise ships welcome passengers in the harbor, lush, vibrant tropical foliage surrounding beach houses overlooking, Biscayne Bay, and stunning modern hotels that evoke the Art Deco glamour that is an integral part of Miami Beach culture.
During a recent visit, we check into the Miami Beach EDITION (2901 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach. Tel: 786-257-4500. www.editionhotels.com/miami-beach) an amazing oceanfront hotel created by Ian Schrager in partnership with Marriott International. According to Schrager, “It’s a new kind of place—it’s the next-generation urban resort, and the next-generation business and lifestyle hotel. There’s nothing else like it on the beach or anywhere else.”
