We had a late arrival at Miami International Airport and we were waiting for a transfer to South America.
Arriving in the sunshine state and waitin for a plane to South America sounds boring, but we got a nice compensation with pick up to the Airport Hilton.
Check in here, situated on a private peninsula on Blue Lagoon, the Miami Airport Hilton, is embarking on a
new voyage – a complete makeover of the hotel’s 500 guest rooms and suites, guest elevators and a new fitness center.
To accent the natural beauty outside the hotels doorsteps, the rejuvenation project blends tropical accents and
sustainable products with a contemporary design of comfort and the feeling of home. Overlooking a natural lagoon teeming with a variety of local flora and fauna including manatees, iguanas and tropical birds, the Miami Airport Hilton’s reinvention will pay homage
to its natural surroundings. The new guest room design features sustainable products to support energy efficiency while complimenting contemporary decor in a nature inspired, earth-tone color palette, alongside dark wood furnishings, and colorful and vibrant accents of
reds and oranges like the burning Florida sunset. All guest rooms, many offering city views of the sparkling downtown skyline are wellappointed,
welcoming guests in a relaxed, contemporary setting. Great hotel, perfect location welcome to Miami.

If you are intereste in movies, take a look at The Fountainebleu. Built in 1954 by Morris Lapidus, who considered it his best work. Unquestionably one of Miami Beach’s most famous hotels, seen extensively in many famous Hollywood films, including “A Hole in the Head” in 1959, “Goldfinger” in 1964, and “Bananas” in 1983.
