Park Ave Hotel
The Park Ave Hotel, also known as “SoBe Park Hotel” or simply “Park Hotel,” stands as a charming boutique accommodation nestled in the heart of Miami Beach. Situated just a stone’s throw away from the revamped Miami Beach Convention Center and the city’s most enticing attractions, this establishment is a true gem. The Park Ave Hotel’s ambitious renovation and expansion project pays homage to its rich history. It involves the meticulous preservation of the original two-level historic building, located on the southern portion of the property, alongside the addition of a new five-level Mid-Rise tower positioned behind this historical structure, forming the North wing. This expansion not only offers new rooms but also introduces a range of exciting amenities.
