Miami Hotel Mambo: The Regent South Beach is No More
There are some more changes happening in South Beach as the city gets closer to welcoming guests for the 2007/2008 season.
In its place is the Vincci hotel chain which kinda sucks for anyone who bought condo-hotel units there. As blogger Kevin Tomlinson says:
If I were a owner of a unit, I would be pretty annoyed. That is one of the risks of buying a condo-hotel unit. It would be like the equivalent of buying a unit at The Ritz Carlton and ending up with a Super 8 operator, or worse yet, a Nicky O!
Indeed, the hotel's website has posted a letter about the change which went into effect Sept. 13th. The Regent will still open their Bal Harbour location in late December/early January. We just hope Vincci will continue the hotel's luxury car-sitting services.
Meanwhile, the blog also reports that Hilton Hotels will take over the Bentley Hotel and that the Gansevoort Hotel-Paradiso Miami will open in November which would be cool but we think its more like January/February 2008.
