Sit Tight, The James Miami Will Open at The End of 2012
It looks like us and Forbes.com had the same idea today--listing the hotels that we are most excited to see open in 2012.
While Forbes added five more hotels than we did and their list spanned the whole year while we just focused on the next few months, we did have two similar picks--W Paris and Conrad New York. But Forbes also dropped a little nugget of info regarding the upcoming James Royal Palm Hotel in Miami.
As you may recall, the James brand announced their plans for the old Royal Palm Hotel back in April. And now, according to the hotel website, renovations on the 255 Royal Palm Tower rooms, which started in August, have been completed. But the rest of the hotel will be under renovation until late 2012 when it will then reopen as The James.
Poised to be a top luxury hotel in South Beach, The James will feature warmly modern, residentially styled interiors, generous complimentary amenities and customized, guest-centric services.
We can hardly wait (already we're dreaming of using the free WiFi from our Miami-kissed hotel room) but we'll have to slow our roll as opening day is practically a year away.
