The Kent is a restored Art Deco hotel in the South Beach area of Miami Beach, Fla. The hotel is less than one block from the beach and Lummus Park, and six blocks from the shops at Lincoln Road. The Jackie Gleason Theatre of the Performing Arts and the Miami Beach Convention Center are both located one mile from The Kent.
Originally built in 1936, the Kent has been refurbished to a dazzling and capricious masterpiece. The lobby's original mahogany accents and classic terrazzo floors have been well maintained, while the new furnishings and details explode in an array of colors. The lobby is splashed with lavender, orange and red oversized chairs. Board games are available in the lobby and a kiosk offers high-speed Internet access for a fee. The 228-square-foot Hibiscus room is available for meetings and production offices. Computers rental is available. The Kent features an on-site garden area perfect for reflection.
The striking guestrooms have the same attention to detail as the public areas, integrating ultra- contemporary style into vintage accommodations. The 59 guestrooms are designed with lavender walls, blond wood flooring and brushed steel accents. Accommodations feature desks, 32-inch LCD televisions with cable service, DVD players, clocks with iPod docks, in-room safes and complimentary wireless Internet access.
