The sunny US state of Florida is the next stop on the Worldhotels World Tour, an on-going campaign that sends World Navigator Jason to celebrated travel destinations where he shares his experiences online in photos and words at worldhotels.com.
Renowned for its year-round good weather and miles of world-class beaches, Florida is one of the top US states for holiday travel.
The “Sunshine State”, as it is known, also holds the vast Everglades National Park; vibrant cities such as Miami and Orlando; the Art Deco district, a must-see in Miami for its exuberant Deco architecture amid Miami’s skyline and traditional ‘ventanitas’ – little window kiosks that deliver a true Miami dining experience.
Jason will be sharing his experiences as he visits some of Florida’s most beloved sites, along with his impressions of the unique Worldhotels properties where he stays.
A global network of independently owned hotels chosen for character and distinction, Worldhotels has ten affiliate properties in Florida, each offering rich and unique accommodation that makes it a destination onto itself.
Sagamore, The Art Hotel (Miami)
A cultural centrepiece of the Miami Beach Art Deco Historic District, Sagamore Hotel, also known as The Art Hotel, is a boutique oceanfront property that houses an extensive collection of contemporary art in its public spaces.
Guests walking through the premises encounter sculptures, photographs, paintings and videos by contemporary artists at every turn.
And if that doesn’t fully satisfy guests’ artistic cravings, they can feast their eyes on the architecture of hundreds of historical buildings in the district, lovely Miami beach sunsets and more.
The Florida Hotel & Conference Center (Daytona Beach)
Located in Daytona Beach, a city famous for its iconic beach and yearly motorsports shows, the Florida Hotel & Conference Center is ideally situated for visits to Seaworld, Disney World and Universal Studios.
Ten of the greater Orlando area’s finest golf courses are located close to the hotel, as are Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park and Kennedy Space Center.
Guests can enjoy the hotel’s top-flight fitness centre, luxurious in-room spa services, poolside cocktails at Cricket Bar and traditional American cuisine at Marcelo’s Bistro.
