The Viceroy Miami's Illy Espresso Machine Will Make You Happy Morning and Night

November 17, 2009 at 12:04 PM | by | ()

We are continuing to geek out over in-room coffee makers. Yesterday, we showed you how the folks Down Under do it and today we're including an in-room coffee maker that we forgot to include in our original round-up--The Illy Espresso machine at Viceroy Miami.

The Francis Francis X8 espresso machines from Illy are found in all rooms at the hotel and there is no grinding of beans or scooping of ground espresso to deal with here. Just plop in a pod into "Frank" (we can call it that, right?) and steaming hot espresso is yours in a matter of seconds. There is milk and as you can see, oranges to accompany your drink as well.

We actually used Frank in the evening when we arrived at the hotel to give us a quick jolt so that we could stay awake to do some work. And when we awoke in the morning, Frank was ready and waiting to serve us again.

Interested in checking out the Viceroy Miami? The hotel is offering a special Holiday package called a "Holiday Suite for the Senses" that includes one-night accommodation in a deluxe suite that will be decked out in holiday decorations of your choice (Christmas Suite, Chanukah Suite, kwanzaa, etc.) and daily in-room holiday sweets created by the hotel's pastry chef for turndown. Rates start at $395 for a 1-bedroom suite for two people.
