A Distinguished Name Among Miami Luxury Hotels
Built in 1982, the InterContinental® Miami soars majestically into the skyline on Chopin Plaza and adjacent to Bayfront Park, located at the confluence of Biscayne Bay and Miami River. A Miami luxury hotel, it was the first in the area to cater to the discerning business elite when it was designed and built by famed architect Pietro Belluschi. Boasting the only lobby in the world built around a work of art, the hotel’s 18-foot, 70-ton Spindle sculpture made of travertine marble by sculptor Henry Moore is the breathtaking focal point of a grand lobby constructed in Italian marble slabs and precious African wood. The hotel was originally designed to be a casino but never operated as such. Instead, it has earned a reputation as Florida’s premier luxury hotel, now an iconic part of Miami history after more than 25 years under the exclusive InterContinental® brand.
From its earliest days, InterContinental® has been the hotel brand of choice for foreign dignitaries, heads-of-state, royalty, rock-stars, celebrities and those seeking unparalleled amenities and accommodations. InterContinental® was the first global hotel brand to establish a presence in the Middle East, Asia/Pacific, and Africa and continues to be Miami’s premier destination for conferences, weddings and relaxing getaways.
