The Eden Roc

The Eden Roc in Miami is one of my favorite hotels.  It is rich in both glamour and history.  In it's heyday, the Eden Roc attracted glamorous stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior, Ernest Hemingway, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Katherine Hepburn and so many more.  It was designed by architect Morris Lapidus in the 1950's to resemble a Hollywood stage set with its theatrical architecture elements.  The Eden Roc was known as the "Grande Dame of Miami Beach".  This historical hotel has been so wonderfully renovated with the lobby's original fixtures and staircase.  Just walking into the Eden Roc you can picture all of the Hollywood stars mingling about.  Most recently, chef Nobu has joined Eden Roc to open his Michelin star dining experience in Miami.  There are also plans to open a Nobu Hotel inside the Eden Roc hotel, which promises to be spectacular.  I have added this to my bucket list...stay tuned!!!
