COMO’s first foray into America, Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach is a new luxury hotel in, as the convoluted name suggests, Miami.
In the heart of the city's iconic Art Deco district, and just a few steps from the beach, the Metropolitan Miami (for short) has 74 rooms and suites with a distinctly Deco chrome and pistachio green feel, created by award-winning Italian designer Paola Navone.
The Traymore Restaurant is the main refuelling station at the hotel, with Floridian seafood featuring heavily (try the Key West pink shrimp) on the menu, under the expert eye of executive chef Jonathan Lane. At night the restaurant colonises the lobby and terrace. During the day, guests can order a selection of delicious crudo from the comfort of their poolside cabanas, while Traymore Bar stocks three dozen varieties of gin, the spirit of the moment, alongside an impressive cocktail menu. Finally, the rooftop Shambhala Juice Bar nods to COMO's commitment to health and wellbeing.
Time for a seamless segue to the COMO Shambhala Urban Escape spa, situated on the eighth floor of the hotel and featuring steam and fitness rooms alongside a rooftop hydrotherapy pool.
Why we love it
We welcome healthy competition, and with this latest arrival there's something for pretty much everyone on Miami's magical beachfront strip.
