WHERE TO STAY IN MIAMI: KIMPTON ANGLERS HOTEL Tuesday 09 October, 2018

Miami is a place I been to several times. I was going to Miami recently for my annual Carnival Cruiseline partnership and getting ready to port at Port Canaveral but I came a day earlier to rest before sail off. I love a cute boutique hotel and I got an opportunity to stay at the Kimpton Anglers Hotel that surprised me with their eclectic vibes.

Modern Lobby

I feel like every area in the hotel is a photo opp space. From when you first walk in the lobby you can already tell this is a modern glam but laid back vibe. Not too glitzy but a little glam and a lot of print action. I was here for it.

ROOFTOP + POOL

Not all hotels have rooftop pools, but in hot Miami sometimes it is a must! Yes South Beach isn’t far, but the convenience of having a swanky rooftop pool with cool views is always a hotel perk! Lots of lounge chairs with shaded covering and there is even a bar cart with a server at the top too if you need a drink to beat the heat!

BOHO ROOM + TERRACE

So here is where the vibes get real in your room. Its a modern boho oasis. The boho decor sold me instantly as this is so my style. More cool patterns and texture, wooden accents and motifs spread around and even some faux palm plants that makes the room more bohemian relaxing. I feel in love with the bathtub and the massive cobalt blue tiling. The tiling went so beautifully with the white porcelain tub with the muti-showerhead attachment.

I had a room with a terrace that oversaw some of the downtairs lounge area. You can some glimpses of the South Miami skyline as well. Perfect Miami vibes!

LOUNGING

So many places to lounge and vibe out in Angler hotel. I think beside it being a boho theme, lounging was a great runner up! So many places to sit, eat, mingle and even take a nap if you want to. I think that is what I loved about this place, so many options and locations to get cozy in this hotel no excuse as why you arent comfortable. Its definitely a place where you can have great meetups and mingling sessions with friends! Grab breakfast here or have a drink and chill out. You can even place super Jenga and Connect Four!

CRAFT COCKTAILS + HAPPY HOURS (MINNOWS BAR)

When on vacay, its always good to know where is happy hour. Happy hour not once, but twice at Angler’s! There is a 6-8 happy hour slot and then there is a 10-12 late night happy hour option! So no excuse as to how you miss a good cocktail time! A reimagined gin house on Miami Beach’s vibrant North of Fifth neighborhood. Minnow Bar houses unique clear spirits where gin takes center stage through herb-infused craft cocktails in a modern and intimate space. Featuring a full service modern-style bar and breezy open outdoor terrace, guests at Minnow Bar are able to select from a curated list of unique gins, piscos, cachaças, and white rum

The craft cocktails are freshly made with fresh ingredients as well and very affordable. Some drinks start off at $6 during happy hour. Cheers!

MINNOWS BAR DECOR

So speaking of bar talk, the bar lounge area was amazing. I swear I want to do my living room area like this space. Its a dark but natural modern vibe to continue with the boho motifs. There are oversized wooden chairs, natural colored patterned pillows, decorated bar and more. I just couldnt get enough of this well designed area I felt at home!

BREAKFAST BUFFET

There isn’t a restaurant at the hotel yet (Seafood restaurant coming soon) but in the meantime breakfast/brunch is served here daily. They have a beautiful breakfast buffet for $15 that will put any regular hotel continental breakfast to shame. Fresh fruit, waffle bar, yogurt station, variety of bagels and pastries and fresh to order omelettes is what makes this breakfast a hot commodity. Feel free to eat inside the bar lounge area or get some fresh air like me and eat in the outdoor lounging area!
