Overview

The hotel's lavish atmosphere and impressive guest list consistently woo visitors
Miami and Miami Beach's attractions cannot be reached on foot from the property

If you have a hankering for nostalgia, consider booking a stay at this landmark property. Everyone from Judy Garland and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor to Al Capone has stayed at The Biltmore Hotel. Capone even ran an under-the-radar casino here, and legend has it that the 275 rooms and suites are still haunted by the ghosts of past lodgers. Either way, travelers are blown away by the beautiful European aesthetic of the hotel. Rooms carry on the luxurious theme of the hotel flawlessly, offering guests 340-threat-count Egyptian bedding and oversized picture windows with views of the pool, golf course or surrounding neighborhood. Amenities like the posh Palme d'Or restaurant and the 18-hole Biltmore Golf Course are just too good to think otherwise. But should you need to unwind outside your digs, recent guests said you can't leave the property without lounging by the expansive Italian Renaissance-inspired pool. You should especially make time for the Sunday Champagne brunch – that's when this hotel really puts its best foot forward. You'll find the lovely Biltmore Hotel in the city of Coral Gables about 10 miles southwest of downtown Miami.

Before he was Tarzan, Johnny Weissmuller – and bevies of synchronized swimmers – wowed Jazz Age crowds with shows at The Biltmore's famous pool, below your room. Today, there's no need to channel the Olympian; just pick a chaise beside the Roman statues and potted palms or schedule a tee time at the equally famous golf course, where Babe Ruth, Bill Clinton, and Tiger Woods have played.

Bouncing back stunningly from its dark days as an army hospital, this hotel has become the jewel of Coral Gables – a dazzling architectural gem with a colorful past. ... Its 16-story tower, like the Freedom Tower in downtown Miami, is a replica of Seville's Giralda Tower.

Lonely Planet

Though the Biltmore's standard rooms can be small, a stay here is a chance to sleep in one of the great laps of US luxury. The grounds are so palatial it would take a solid week to explore everything the Biltmore has to offer – we highly recommend reading a book in the Romanesque/Arabian Nights opulent lobby, sunning underneath enormous columns and taking a dip in the largest hotel pool in the continental USA.

This 1926 Mediterranean-style historic landmark that anchors Coral Gables still feels very Old Florida. The palm-adorned central courtyard's gurgling fountain and grand entrance-inspiring lobby have seen the likes of Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, and an assortment of Vanderbilts.
