Originally built in 1939, the former Traymore Hotel was taken over and redeveloped by the COMO Group in late 2013. Today’s COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach with its 74 rooms and perched directly on this iconic beach remains one of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in Miami.
Situated on Collins Avenue, the hotel is just a few blocks from the heart of all the action of South Beach. There’s a boutique feel to the property; reinforced by the friendly smiles of the people working here who you’ll get to know very well, very soon. You’d be forgiven for thinking you’re in Europe for a moment. Design and style are very relevant; the decor is decidedly contemporary, light and airy with cool marble and shining chrome and pops of colour of seafoam green and pastel pink in the rooms to remind you that you’re in Miami.
The COMO Shambhala signature scent wafting all around will remind you, that if you haven’t already booked some time in the Shambala spa, it’s high time you did. The spa, where the gym is also located, has its own COMO Shambhala Cuisine and Wellness Juice selection, also offered through room service and the restaurant for those looking to tone-up their beach bods.
Healthy cuisine and locally sourced, Floridian fare is also the name of the game at the hotel’s restaurant, Traymore by Michael Schwartz. This Art Deco Golden Age restaurant is beautifully appointed; almost an extension of the greenery and bright light of the outdoors. Michael Schwartz, incidentally, is the chef behind one of Miami’s most popular restaurants – and a must if you’re in town – Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink, located in the city’s Design District. Here at the Traymore, the chef’s raw bar and market table offerings are simply wonderful. If you prefer to stay poolside at the hotel’s rooftop hydrotherapy pool, The Met Bar can provide non-stop drinks, meals and snacks at (almost) all hours. There’s beachside service too, so you’ll never want for anything.
When it comes to rooms, remember that the property itself is older, so sizes and shapes vary. Ask questions, as some of the rooms are on the small side, and some have balconies, while not all do. Special features like the white leather-coated wardrobes which light up at night and give the room a lovely glow ensures the hotel dazzles in yet one more way.
