Who says all hotels are the same, even when they are under the same flag.
The soon-to-be-open Surfcomber
, Vero Beach Hotel & Spa
, and EPIC Miami
are all Kimpton Hotels located in South Florida.
But that’s where the similarities stop.
The properties are individual as their locations and their guests who frequent or will be frequenting them.
“It’s exciting,” says Sean McKeen, general manager of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ newest Florida property, Surfcomber. “We’re not like a typical South Beach property. The focus of Surfcomber is one a comfortable residential feel.”
A combination of “eclectic style of European Bohemia with a down home American front porch appeal,” the property opens on December 1 in the heart
of SoBe’s Art Deco District. Sitting along the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, the property has 200-feet of oceanfront. Surfcomber brings all of Kimpton’s amenities
including the Kimpton InTouch guest loyalty program, Guppy Love Program, healthy and organic mini-bar selections, and more.
According to McKeen, the 186 guestrooms
have been renovated from top to bottom. The property also offers spa services
, available in-room, beachside or poolside. There’s on-site dining
as well as room service.
The property also strives to balance fun and wellness
with approachability. Along with the fitness center and the outdoor swimming pool, Surfcomber also offers paddle boarding as well as a 3-, 5-, 7-mile running/walking path.
General manager Awet Sium calls Vero Beach Hotel & Spa “a unique experience.”
“It’s an intimate, old Florida-style resort.”
Located 75 miles from Orlando, Vero Beach has been recognized as one of the top beach towns in the U.S. And what better place to stay at when visiting than at a AAA four-diamond rated property.
Providing 113 guestrooms
(“with balconies, most of them facing the ocean”) with options that include two- to three-bedroom grand
suites complete with kitchens, living and dining rooms, it easy to understand why the property is considered a family resort
, especially for multi-generational travel. And the best is yet to come as the property prepares for some new enhancements and guest programs.
It’s also a prime property for destination weddings
Offering access to many of the popular land and water-based resort activities
, Vero Beach Hotel & Spa does offer a not-so-typical activity as well.
Located in Florida’s Treasure Coast, guests have the opportunity to find their own treasures along the beach. Metal detectors are provided upon request, and according to Sium, treasures have been found.
Located in downtown Miami, EPIC definitely lives up to its name. Situated on the bank of the Miami River, the property offers views of not only the river, but also Biscayne Bay and the skyline.
Pamper yourself in urban style at this 441 room
property in the club level
rooms on the 29th and 30th floor, or in the Exhale Spa
(in-room services available as well.) Don’t miss the pool
area, either. Located on the 16th floor, adjacent to the spa is the rather large pool deck, home to two pools, providing unforgettable views of the city. For the total experience, reserve a cabana. You won’t regret it.
And this just the beginning of an EPIC Miami experience.
The hotel also has its own marina
; and offers an array of activities
for nearly every interest.
Whether you’re visiting South Florida for fun or business, there’s a Kimpton Hotel that’ll provide a memorable stay.
