The Biltmore is one of the finest properties in South Florida for a host of reasons. Beyond the fact that service excels here, the hotel, which is Coral Gables’ oldest, is an impressive yet tranquil example of Old World elegance. Mediterranean-inspired architecture — complete with a 315-foot copper-toned tower — and tastefully decorated rooms are backed by a tropical location, all painting an idyllic picture of South Florida. Its Coral Gables location means that you can soak in the amenities and sun while also having easy access to the Miami International Airport and downtown Miami hot spots.
In addition to the stellar location, though, there are some fantastic public facilities at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, such as a 750,000-gallon pool and expansive, professional-grade gym that make your stay all the more worthwhile. One of the other more memorable experiences to be had at the luxury hotel is at Palme d'Or, an elegant French restaurant that serves up masterful dishes in the form of a five-course prix fixe menu. When you’ve finished your selection from James Beard-nominated chef Gregory Pugin, take a glass of wine at the Biltmore Bar from your leather library chair and soak it all in.
