Miami Voted One of America’s Top Cities for Winter Travel

October 19, 2016

Travel + Leisure magazine recently ranked Miami #7 in the nation for winter travel! To no one’s surprise, our year-round mild weather and dazzling beaches bring travelers back year after year. Besides the obvious reasons, Travel + Leisure mentions Miami’s hospitality scene as a feature that draws visitors:

The Florida city has seen a major hotel and restaurant boom, thanks in part to the wizardry of Alan Faena.

The Faena Hotel turned heads upon its opening last year during Art Basel, a Miami tradition that has become a world-renowned art phenomenon. As Travel + Leisure notes:

In the first week of December, the city is completely and brilliantly consumed by Art Basel.



If you’re planning on visiting Miami this December, Art Basel is certainly an event not to be missed. Hotels and resorts cater to Art Basel guests with design-forward architecture and glamorous pool parties. In keeping with Miami’s pop art scene, Faena Hotel’s Damien Hirst sculptures and a glitzy “cathedral” entryway set the bar high for luxury accommodation in South Florida.



At Faena’s Pao restaurant, one can enjoy unique dishes such as pork adobo rice with green mango pico, or sea urchin with sweet corn pudding.



ShadeFLA is proud to have installed retractable screens at Pao. We have also installed Sun Squares and retractable roofs at other South Beach hotels such as The Betsy and Loews Miami Beach.
