DALLAS, Nov 14, 2008 / FW/ — Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack frequented Fontainebleau Miami Beach during their heydays. Recapturing its gilded past, the Florida resort, after its $1 billion reinvention and expansion, rolls out the red carpet for Sean “DIDDY” Combs, A-Rod, Terrence Howard, Chloe Sevigny and Venus and Serena Williams and a list of A-list celebrities plus the Victoria’s Secret Angels.
With the mantra, ‘resort for entertainment and glamour,’ the new Fontainebleau Miami Beach brings back its distinctive ‘cheese wall’ and the famed ‘Staircase to Nowhere’, part of the original vision by architect Morris Lapidus, who designed the curvilinear Fontainebleau as a grand stage where everyone who entered played their part.
Cutting the ceremonial ribbon are Victoria’s Secret Angels who will also be taping the notoriously famous Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in the premises during Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s celebratory weekend.
Fontainebleau’s star-studded weekend marks the end of a $1 billion transformation that took an architectural masterpiece into the 21st century with 1,504 new guestrooms and suites outfitted with Apple(R) technology.
With 11 restaurants and lounges, including a Chocolate Indulgence experience; a 40,000-square-foot spa with mineral-rich water therapies and co-ed swimming pools; and a dramatic oceanfront pool-scape featuring “walls of water” and a sexy enclave surrounded by cabanas and sun loungers, Fontainebleau will reclaim its seat as a top U.S. destination.
