Faena Hotel Miami Beach Awarded Forbes Five Star Honor
Faena Hotel Miami Beach Awarded Forbes Five Star Honor for the SIXTH Consecutive Year
Forbes Travel Guide (“FTG”), the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, today announced its 2021 Star Awards. FAENA HOTEL MIAMI BEACH earned a new Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star award and is showcased with other honorees on ForbesTravelGuide.com for the SIXTH consecutive year since its debut year in 2015-- and is showcased with other honorees on ForbesTravelGuide.com
Faena tapped imaginative filmmaker Baz Luhrmann and his Academy Award-winning designer wife Catherine Martin as creative consultants. The result is elegant, Art Deco-esque and over the top.
When it opened in December 2015, Faena Hotel Miami Beach made a splashy debut. Not only did the Miami hotel unveil decadent décor courtesy of big-name Hollywood players, but it christened a newly formed arts and culture hub in the city.
Visionary Alan Faena and partner Len Blavatnik opened the hotel at the former location of the historic Saxony Hotel in the new Faena District Miami Beach neighborhood, located between the Atlantic Ocean and Indian Creek (32nd to 36th streets).
The 1947-built Saxony reigned in the ’50s and ’60 s as the “Queen of Collins Avenue,” where icons Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe and Dean Martin often performed. Faena’s reimagining of the hotel brings back that Old Hollywood glamour with a modern take in an attempt to catalyze a cultural renaissance in Miami.
During an unprecedented time, these top properties adapted to numerous adversities all while maintaining high service levels and ensuring the health security of their guests and staff.
