Waldorf Astoria: A Storied Brand, New Heights of Luxury for Miami’s Tallest Building

Launching sales this March, Waldorf Astoria’s hotel and residences have already left their mark on Miami’s pre-construction market. The 100-story condo-hotel will not only be the tallest building in Miami, but also the tallest building in Florida, and one of the most iconic buildings to be added to the city’s skyline in recent times. Along with eminent design features, this luxury Supertall is set to bring a brand-new world of allure to the Magic City. However, before diving into the kind of amenities future guests and residents can expect to enjoy at this condo-hotel, let’s take a look at the Waldorf Astoria brand and its storied history.

About the Brand - Waldorf Astoria

Waldorf Astoria is Hilton’s premium brand of luxury hotels and resorts. Representing the highest standards of facilities and services offered by Hilton Worldwide, this is the hospitality giant’s flagship brand, previously known as The Waldor=Astoria Collection.

The story of Waldorf Astoria dates back to 1893, when William Waldorf Astor opened a 13-story hotel at 5th Avenue and 33rd Street in New York City, calling it the Waldorf. His cousin, John Jacob Astor IV, opened a 17-story hotel next door just four years later, calling it the Astoria. Ending their family feud a few years down the line, they decided to connect the two hotels with a corridor forming the Waldorf=Astoria, where the “equal” sign represented the bridge. This original hotel was finally torn down to make way for the Empire State Building, and the famous Park and Lexington Avenue property we all know today opened doors in 1931.

Fast forward a century or so, this luxury chain of hotels operates in 30 iconic properties across the globe and is known for its signature services, innovation, and creating a unique sense of space. Going with the motto of “Live Unforgettably,” you will find a Waldorf Astoria in New York, Chicago, Florida, California, Hawaii, the UAE, Italy, France, Scotland, Germany, China, Maldives, Egypt and the Netherlands, with another 20 odd properties in the pipeline.

As mentioned on the global hospitality leader’s 
website, the brand commits to the following:

  • True Waldorf Service. Aimed at creating unforgettable memories, the entire hotel’s staff, inclusive of personal concierges, strives to offer guests unmatched, graceful, and highly personalized services.
  • Iconic Environments. World-over, the Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts don’t just feature iconic architecture, but also luxuriously appointed environments meant to inspire a sense of celebration.
  • Culinary Excellence. Credited with inventing the Red Velvet Cupcake, Waldorf Astoria’s signature restaurants come powered by some of the most famous and Michelin-starred chefs of our times.
  • Modern Leisures. Taking a cue from the property’s surroundings, the brand tailors spa and wellness treatments, making them unique for each location. It’s recent collaboration with private aviation company ‘Wheels Up’ shows constant innovation to cater to the needs of its jet-setting guests.
  • Pioneers of Culture. The brand holds the rare feat of having hosted every American president from Herbert Hoover to Barack Obama. It has also hosted an entire gamut of the most celebrated entertainers, cultural icons, and brightest talents, including Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Katharine Hepburn, and Sophia Bush.

Residents of the upcoming Waldorf Astoria condo-hotel in Miami can expect to be treated to the above and more, once again raising the bar for Miami luxury condos. Here’s looking at what Downtown Miami’s supertall will entail:

If you love coastal living with walkable access to Atlantic Ocean beaches, and you want to move to a beachfront address while bypassing the hustle and bustle of South Beach, there are two beachside communities to consider when looking to make your move: Sunny Isles Beach and Surfside.  While these communities are practically next-door neighbors (with ritzy Bal Harbour nestled between them) and they share many amenities, including direct beach access to the Atlantic. Plus, they both are in prime locations that provide quick and easy access to airports, shopping, arts and culture, and outdoor living, living there could not be more different from one another.   As insiders who’ve lived in these popular Miami neighborhoods, we’ve broken down the similarities and differences between these two beautiful seaside communities in case you are looking to move to Miami.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
