Lennox Miami Beach Hotel was once the historic Peter Miller Hotel, inaugurated in 1936. Purchased in 2010 by the Lennox Hotels CEO, Diego Agnelli for 14.7$ million, this building went through a transformation of 71$ million. This brand new and renovated hotel will open and July and we couldn’t be more excited. Today, Miami Design Agenda unveils its amazing features, and what you can expect in this upcoming season.
In 1936, located in Collins Avenue and 19th Street, it stood for the first time the Peter Miller Hotel. This iconic and legendary hotel was an amazing landmark for the city of Miami, that was designed by Russell Pancoast, in 1934. This historic district estate was recognized for being at service to the U.S. Army for the Air Forces Technical Training Command during World War II, until 1944.
Nine years after its official closure to the public, the Lennox Hotels CEO decided to expand his hospitality chain, and purchase this historic estate for 14.7$ million. After his purchase, he invested 71$ million in the rightful renovation of this hotel, maintaining its original Art Deco and Mediterranean architectural-style exterior. This improved and renovated Lennox Miami Beach Hotel will have its official opening on July of 2019.
Although it also maintained the original terrazzo floor, lobby archways and facades of three of the four buildings, the 71$ million renovation consisted on many crucial elements. Since the creation of moss-covered walls, through the wooden furniture from Patagonia, and to the building of a 12-foot-long outdoor pool. The new name sits just below the original name above the front door, and the guests will find a bar where the reception used to be in the old days.
It’s called Lennox Miami Beach Hotel because it is inspired on an island over by Argentina and Chile, where Lennox is easy to pronounce in Spanish and English. The CEO also decided to tore down the one building that didn’t have a street-side facade, and transformed it into a five-story tower with outdoor hallways. The new building and the three smaller ones feature the interior pool and poolside bar.
There is a total of 119 rooms where they provide William Roam’s vegan bath collection, where 54 are king bedrooms, 35 are doubles, and 30 are queens. Thirteen of the rooms have small balconies. There’s also a restaurant on the first floor, with outdoor seating overlooking the amazing and iconic view of 19th Street. If you planning a trip to Miami after July, make sure to stay at the new and improved Lennox Miami Beach Hotel.
