Remember when South Beach had a Regent?

Yes, we're talking a Regent Hotels Regent, although this was over five years ago, an eternity in the Miami Hotel Mambo game. If not, you may instead remember the Regent Bal Harbour--also no longer around.

(A quick history lesson before we get to the news of the new Regent: The Regent South Beach is now the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach and The Regent Bal Harbour is now One Bal Harbour Resort & Spa.)

Now. The new Regent coming to SoBe is not a Regent like those former Regents. Just to confuse you even more, it shares an address with another new hotel on the way: The Gale South Beach.

According to the company behind both properties, Menin Hotels:

The Regent and Gale Hotel are sister properties which names are historical landmarks in Miami Beach. The Regent & Gale are home to 89 intimate rooms with modern accommodations and amenities as well as Drumbar, a speakeasy establishment designed to deliver warmth, style, and an energetic spirit of old meets new. To be completed at the end of 2012.

There you go. At last Miami gets a Regent again. Even if it's not a Regent-Regent but a Menin hotels 'RegentandGaleHotel' (in a building, incidentally, that was once owned by Morgans Hotel Group, who have the Delano across the street).

Got all that? Good.

It's time for a nap.
