The aesthetics of the hotel have also been revamped, as modern art, curated by collector Peter Brant of The Brant Foundation, is spread throughout the hotel. Guest rooms are all about luxury, in which natural forms and textures are accented with hints of blue and purple in each room. This is a design-focused resort, which invokes the tradition of Miami art appreciation.
