Top Reasons to Visit Casa Moderna Miami Hotel & Spa
- It’s located right across from PortMiami at the intersection of some of the city’s hottest neighborhoods. To the south is downtown and to the east is the nightlife in South Beach.
- All the guest rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over Biscayne Bay and downtown’s skyscrapers. The views are best from the spacious balconies and freestanding soaking tubs in the bathrooms.
- Expect to find upscale amenities you won’t see many other places, such as TVs in the bathroom mirrors.
- A swanky outdoor pool enclosed in glass and dressed in flowing white curtains dominates the top floor. It’s a great place to catch some rays or stargaze in a relaxed atmosphere that can be hard to come by in Miami.
- Amuse Restaurant & Lounge is a sleek-and-sexy place to dine before or after catching a game or concert at the neighboring AmericanAirlines Arena. Don’t miss the signature cocktails created by the in-house mixologist; they’re made using fresh fruits and purées.
- The spa offers a wealth of soothing services including vichy showers, aromatic exfoliation rituals, and reflexology treatments.
Downtown Miami: City on the Bay with Performing-Arts Centers and Nightlife
Towering skyscrapers, high-rise condos, and performing-arts buildings punctuate the skyline of downtown Miami. It’s the city’s cultural, financial, and commercial center, set along the shores of Biscayne Bay. During the day, the area is filled with busy professionals headed to and from the office, but at night it becomes an entertainment hot spot as bars and lounges open their doors. It’s also home to AmericanAirlines Arena where you’ll find the biggest concerts—think U2 and Madonna—as well as Miami Heat games. Next door, Bayside Marketplace is a nice spot to eat dinner and do some shopping along the water.
Take Route 1A across the bay and you’ll find yourself in Miami Beach. The southernmost portion, South Beach, is known all over the world for its vibrant, pastel-colored art-deco hotels and rollicking nightlife. But the rest of Miami Beach has charms of its own. Water temperatures at the city's pristine beaches stay on the good side of 70 degrees all year long, and views of the Atlantic Ocean are unparalleled. A seaside boardwalk stretches for more than 70 blocks, providing a scenic pathway for jogging, biking, or conga-lining your way from North Beach to South Beach.
No trip to Miami Beach is complete without sampling some authentic Cuban food, such as the medianoche sandwiches available at any local joint. Latin flavor seeps into the music scene, too, inspiring bouts of salsa dancing after a few rum-soaked mojitos at one of the nightclubs along Ocean Drive. A morning-after swim in the calm Atlantic is a good way to restore equilibrium.
