Miami Beach, FL – July 2, 2018 – Miami Beach continues to rapidly grow as an international destination and based on traveler demand, is set to celebrate some of the country’s most-anticipated hotel and restaurant openings this season.

Starting this summer, Miami Beach will expand on its reputation as a city like no other place in the world, connecting travelers to the essence of the city through the opening of must-stay and must-taste experiences including:
The Re-Imagination of the Cadillac Hotel & Beach Club – Say hello to vacation with a welcome popsicle from the hotel’s signature shaved ice cart on arrival and take in the 70-year-old hotel’s art deco charm. The 357-room hotel, set to open this month, will provide unique services and amenities including a signature Cadillac Concierge program, on-site photo booth and a poolside family movie night every Friday.
A Rooftop Glass Bottom Pool at Celino South Beach – Influence from the 1940’s meets Latin flair at this new, 132 gues-room hotel, creatively comprised of three historic buildings on Ocean Drive.

Fresh Seafood and Gin at Seawell Fish n’ Oyster and Minnow Bar at the Kimpton Angler Hotel South Beach – Seafood and cocktail lovers can go for traditional raw bar items and thoughtfully-prepared dishes paired with herb-infused drinks, the brainchild of Chef Julian Garriga and veteran Bartender, Chris Resnick.
