When we go places, we want to seek out the wonderful and exciting side of a destination. Our experiences are worth more than material things. That, most of us will agree on. Traveling means indulging in a place. Staying at a top notch hotel that is not just serving as “some accommodation to catch Zzzs”, but that is an experience in itself, is what can oftentimes make a trip. It’s the cherry on top and that place that will play an important part in your journey. Don’t underestimate how a grand hotel can make you feel. It can be a little world in itself where you can recharge and look back on the day while in your own, special time warp.
Leave the Everyday, Begin the Experience
If you travel to Miami, consider staying at the historic and luxurious Biltmore Hotel. Picture-perfect from the beginning, it was built in 1926 as a luxury hotel in Miami-Coral Gables, Florida. At that time, it made the list as the tallest building in the state. When urban planner and real estate developer George Merrick and John McEntee Bowman built this resort, Merrick had the vision of making it not just an upscale place to lodge, but also saw it as a hub for fashion and sports. Not just visually illuminated from the outside, but symbolically for everything it has to offer visitors, for all of their senses.
Hence, golf enthusiasts will find their heaven here on an 18-hole, 71-par state of the art championship course. Those who appreciate a well-rounded wardrobe will enjoy the many unique boutiques and shopping opportunities on location. And, don’t we all like a good show? One of the longest running live theaters, GableStage Theater, is home at The Biltmore and presenting original productions, which add to the experience.
In 1996, The Biltmore became a National Historic Landmark and made the American Institute of Architects’ list of “100 Years. 100 Places” of Florida architecture. Furthermore, the hotel’s grounds have been used for TV shows and movies such as Miami Vice and Bad Boys. A resort hotel that made the screen. Feeling a little bit special yet?
And, just as a fun fact on the side: The Biltmore has been a hub for many attractions throughout the years. One of them was swimming instructor – later on playing the role in an early Tarzan movie – Johnny Weissmuller.
Now, with so many more stories to tell, the question of whether this hotel is haunted remains. Some people believe this to be true. Don’t we all love a good story? One of happy ghosts, if at all. Many of us certainly appreciate deep-rooted history, making The Miami-Biltmore Hotel even more attractive.
