Tracing Miami’s dynamic hotel scene since 2017, I’ve had the privilege of chronicling its evolution through articles that captured the essence of each era: the groundbreaking introductions of 2017, the transformative trio of years in 2018-2019-2020, and the innovative renaissance of 2022.
This city, a radiant blend of diverse cultures and Atlantic serenity, has never ceased to amaze with its commitment to unparalleled hospitality. Now, as we transition further into the 2020s, Miami’s skyline readies itself to welcome a new set of game-changers in the hotel industry. The upcoming openings of 2023 and 2024 stand as testaments to this city’s unwavering dedication to luxury, innovation, and experience. Embark on another journey with me as we unveil the next chapter of Miami’s rich hospitality narrative.
