I would like to start this post by showing our appreciation to my lovely parents for making this luxury hotel experience possible for Jason and I: it was our amazing birthday present from them last year! Standing tall and proud by the Biscayne Bay in Miami is the iconic five star InterContinental Miami. The views from this elegant architecture are truly multi-dimensional from both inside and out, giving you an unforgettable 360° experience of the famed city loved by millions. From one side of the hotel you can marvel at the city views of Miami’s financial and business district. On another side you have breathtaking views of the Biscayne Bay. If you get really lucky, you’ll get a panoramic view of the bustling city, the events taking place in the beautiful Bayfront Park, AND the gorgeous Biscayne Bay. Every room has an over-sized window sill you can sit on, and all glass window specifically designed for your jaw dropping viewing pleasure. To top it off, the exterior of this building comes to life at night of sight and sound. It projects multi-colored light shows and live-action silhouette figures of some of Miami’s top dancers! How awesome is that?!
The beginning of our experience into the hotel started with the valet service. It is almost an integral part of the hotel. For convenience, it’s worth spending a hefty “little” extra (about $45/night) for a piece of mind of not having to worry about city parking.
The lobby of the InterContinental Miami is so modern, sophisticated and inviting! There’s a giant statue in the middle of the hotel lobby, with a sign for photo ops. There are also photo ops signs all over the hotel, directing guests to some of the most picturesque spots, a thoughtful touch to the hotel! Finally we made our way into our room. Needless to say, my smile was from ear to ear at the sight! Words alone can’t do this luxury hotel justice, so I will just let my photos do the talking.
Then we continued on to explore the rooftop pool area. It was my first time ever on a roof deck pool, super exciting! We got to enjoy the pool for a little while before we headed out for dinner.
I absolutely loved EVERYTHING about this elegant and sophisticated hotel! There are so much left of the hotel we still had yet to explore! I wish we had more time to enjoy the hotel, as we only had one night there. I also highly recommend anyone to stay there for at least a night for the experience, as it is one of Miami’s iconic landmarks. (You might even get to rub elbows with some A-List celebrities!)
