UPDATE 9.6.13: A rep for the hotel emailed us to say, "We're having our most successful year on record since reopening in 2008. We're averaging over 80% occupancy a year and have the highest revenues in the history of Fontainebleau. In fact, Fontainebleau is one of the most profitable non-casino hotels in the world." In other words, party on.
It's unbelievable that even in the face of financial troubles, Miami Beach's legendary Fontainebleau is still partying like all's right in the world.
The hotel capped off their summer of BleauLive concertsthis past weekend with a performance by singer Robin Thicke and Grammy-winning producer/musician Pharrell Williams. The duo took to the stage and performed their monster summer hit, "Blurred Lines."
Meanwhile, the details are equally blurry regarding the upcoming sale of The Fontainebleau to South Florida developer Turnberry Ltd. Dubai World, who has 50 percent stake in the hotel, has already unloaded other assets to repay $25 billion worth of debts, with the SoBe hotel the most recent on the chopping block.
According to an article in Reuters, the sale of the hotel will be completed in a few weeks, but the price is being kept hush hush according to their source, and Dubai World's spokesman would not comment.
First they teamed up with Blue Ribbon Restaurant Group to bring guests some of the most delicious fried chicken on the planet. Now, Renaissance Hotels are attracting celebs and musos, like Robin Thicke, Minka Kelly, Solange Knowles, and Kourtney Kardashian with her plus one.
These folks were all at the Renaissance New York Times Square last night but being skinny celebs all, we're pretty sure they weren't there for the fried chicken. Nope, they were helping Renaissance launch its new RLife Live program, a series of curated events such as intimate acoustic performances, listening parties, and pre- and post-concert parties.
What is up with Miami and bad rap videos? First, there was Pitbull's "Hotel Room Service" at the EPIC Hotel. Then John Legend, Kanye and Consequence filmed an unexciting video at The Fontainebleau. And now we have Rick Ross and Robin Thicke b-boying it all over the Viceroy Miami and the Icon Brickell complex with their new video, "Lay Back."
Everywhere they go in the video, there are skimpy girls in bikinis and high heels--chilling at the Viceroy's super long pool, doing a sexy strut in the spa, getting cozy in a (faux) guestroom and making out in the screening room.
The song is alright but even though we love Robin Thicke, he looks like Justin Timberlake's "D-ck in a Box" and "Mother Lover" character, just without the goatee and the 90s clothing. Seriously, what is he doing in this video? Cheese alert. However, we will admit that the video shows off the Viceroy Miami's best features--the jaw-dropping views of The Biscayne Bay.
Since Lionel Richie's video still seems to be the defacto measurement device for bad music videos, we have to say that Robin Thicke and Rick Ross' terrible video is better that Lionel's. But not by much.
