The historic Biltmore Hotel Miami plans to do a $25 million
renovation of its guest rooms and golf course.
The property in Coral Gables, which recently completed a
redesign of its lobby and other public spaces, said the project should be
completed by the end of the year.
As part of the renovation, the hotel said it will restore its
18-hole, par-71 golf course to the original grandeur of the 1925 Donald
The course renovation will be overseen by veteran architect
Brian Silva and will add new Bermuda grass on the existing tees, fairways and
greens and incorporate new bunkers. It will also establish challenging
signature holes and extend the course length to over 7,100 yards.
The Biltmore recently completed a lobby renovation.
The guest rooms will feature a mix of greens, plum and
silver sage along with the warm Mediterranean architectural inlays of the
property's original design. Designer touches will include romantic gemstone
chandeliers over the beds, classic moldings, cut velvet and embroidered damask
fabrics as well and as framed art created from original architectural blueprints.
The hotel already has already completed a renovation of its
main lobby and spa and added a 10,000-square-foot gym.
