Historic Art Deco Hotel in Miami’s South Beach Now Accepting Reservations

Cardozo South Beach, formally the Cardozo Hotel, reopens next month in Miami Beach as a reimagined legacy in the city’s celebrated Art Deco district. Reservations for the 41-room boutique property are now being accepted for arrivals beginning May 15th. The relaunch of the hotel, which is owned by international superstars, Emilio and Gloria Estefan, follows an extensive $15 million makeover that overhauled Cardozo’s full interior.

Originally constructed in 1939 with architecture by Henry Hohauser, Cardozo is steeped in historical significance that stretches from World War II to Hollywood movie set (a la 1959’s Hole in the Head with Frank Sinatra; Ben Stiller’s famous “hair gel” scene in 1998’s There’s Something About Mary; and Oliver Stone’s 1999 film, Any Given Sunday). The latest iteration of the Miami Beach property comes in the form of a new, modern interior that brings together two different eras.

The updated Cardozo will present a clean, white motif personally designed by the Estefans and in partnership with Miami-based architect, Aldo Ducci. The hotel’s new style will offer a cool retreat from South Beach’s red-hot vibe, with Cardozo sitting at the center of the neighborhood’s Ocean Drive strip and directly across from the city’s iconic beachfront. Adding to Cardozo’s new flare, famed Italian eatery, BiCE Cucina Miami, takes up residency inside the hotel with a full-service restaurant set to deliver authentic Italian cuisine for lunch and dinner, plus traditional fare for breakfast.
