Miami still hasn’t come down from the high that is the Trio-Five, or one of the many nicknames for the Bosh-James-Wade triple threat coming soon to an American Airlines Arena near you. In fact, the new JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Miami, set to open October 1 in downtown Miami, turned up the heat even more and included in its massive 50,000-square-foot sports, lifestyle, and entertainment complex a 10,000-sqaure-foot NBA approved basketball court fit for—you guessed it—the three kings, and anyone who wants to really experience what a five-star luxury hotel can offer.
The two-story entertainment floors will also feature a high-tech media room, billiard room, Rik Rak Spa & Salon, as well as the Jim McLean Golf School (virtual golf facility with an indoor putting green), a virtual bowling room, and Met 2 Fitness, a 4,500-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness center. And if you’re still looking for something to do around the hotel, there’s also the tennis court, heated stainless steel pool, and whirlpool.
For guests opting for even more exclusivity, luxury, and true first-class services, they should check out the 44-room Hotel Beaux Arts Miami, JW Marriot Marquis’ hotel-within-a-hotel, located above the main hotel. And after all that running around on the 19th and 20th floor, your famished stomach will find its happiness at db Bistro Moderne, the restaurant of renowned French chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud. The restaurant boasts towering 18-foot ceilings, a chic bar and lounge, and a terrace overlooking the Miami river, as well as two private dining rooms accommodating up to 60 guests.
