Miami Beach, FL
Hotel Victor, on Ocean Drive, where internationally-renowned, Paris-based decorator Jacques Garcia brings his exuberant talents to bare on an ultra-luxurious, 88 room retreat overlooking the Atlantic. With a glamorous look and tropical ambience, Hotel Victor stands apart as an oasis of chic, providing passersby with just a hint of provocative and seductive interior life. Adjacent to the Versace Mansion, Hotel Victor capitalizes on its central location and has become the hotbed of sizzle on South Beach. Rooms are awash in luxurious fabrics and materials, with rich colored satin headboards and curtain trim, white marble, ebony lacquered furniture, flat screen TV's and plush custom weave carpeting. Bedrooms seamlessly open to all-white marble bathrooms with deep dramatic bathtubs.
Suites have panoramic windows providing direct ocean views from the living areas and bedrooms and open baths, which feature Infinity edge tubs. The pinnacle of South Beach hotel suites are the 4,000 square foot Penthouse, which has a private elevator and two outdoor terraces: one on the private rooftop and the other with an outdoor hot tub and shower. The Penthouse also has 360-degree views of the Atlantic, Miami Beach and the city of Miami. The pool is designed as homage to the glamorous, shaped watering holes of the 40's; the pool will be surrounded by Garcia-designed furniture, including oversized daybeds and cabana tents, perfect for poolside lounging. Extending off the lobby area is VIX, with culturally inspired cuisine from the legendary Spice Route.
