With SLS South Beach fast approaching just across the way, the Delano is getting ready for the new competition by opening a slew of new bars and restaurants conceived by The Light Group.

The latest, FDR Lounge officially opened in the former Florida Room space last week with a special performance by Mos Def. But a few days earlier, Kardashian ex Kris Humphries was seen there testing out the waters.

We're not going to lie: we liked the look and feel of The Florida Room, and not just because Lenny Kravitz designed it. The former space paid tribute to Miami Art Deco while still being thoroughly modern. It had, in a word, personality.

It seemed sudden when we first learned the news that Blue Door Fish was closing and a new restaurant would be opening in its place at the Delano Hotel. It still does, as the revamp has moved at Light Group-speed (heh) and Bianca opens her doors on Friday.

We actually loved the food at Blue Door Fish, so we're sad about that loss but excited to see what the Italian, farm-to-table, Slow Food-movement menu at Bianca actually tastes like.

We learned last month that The Delano in South Beach, one of HotelChatter's 10 Best Hotels in Miami, was getting a major makeover for its restaurant and bar scene but it turns out the refresh is actually extending up into the guestrooms as well.

Come January, guests will be able to use their smartphones as keys. Finally! Someone else aside from the Holiday Inn near O'Hare airport and a random hotel in Sweden is doing this! We're actually so excited about this new technology that we're thisclose to booking a room in January just so we can try it out.

Guestrooms at the Delano, like many of Morgans Hotel Group's other properties, will also feature in-room iPads that will allow guests to order anything they like from the device whether it be room service, wake-up calls, valet parking, etc. While the hallway corridors and the signature poolside bungalow rooms will be updated, the rest of the guestrooms should remain the same.

But downstairs, the scene will be that of an invigorated and evolved Delano Hotel, thanks to the infusion of Las Vegas' Light Group, which Morgans recently acquired.
