Conrad Miami: Never Just Stay, #StayInspired


Chef Brandel Lisa Niver at Conrad MiamiAt the Conrad Miami, when I arrived  in my room with a view, there was a beautiful plate of macaroons with the words, “Welcome to the Conrad Miami! Stay Inspired!” At the Conrad hotels, they do not want you to just be revived by their incredible rooms, spa and restaurant but also to be inspired to do your best.

The team on this property from Francois Calixte on the concierge team to Jason Dixon, tennis instructor, went out of their way to make my experience memorable. The Conrad Concierge developed 1/3/5 experiences so that whatever city you are in and whether you have one, three or five hours to journey you will maximize your time. At Conrad Miami, you can see sunrise and sunset and they will help you take advantage of every waking hour!

If you are staying in the Brickell area for business (the third largest financial area after London and NYC), make sure to take advantage of the weekday lunch time specials and all this hotel in the sky has to offer. The “Taste of Time” is a set lunch with three courses and will take 45minutes or it is free. The items change every three weeks so make sure to test this out more than once!

One of my favorite things is to arrive in a new city, check in and have a massage. The Spa and Fitness area on the 24th floor are well appointed and I love their robes! My massage by Nadege was fantastic and I was well on my way towards relaxation.

I loved the views from the 25th floor at Atrio Restaurant and in LVL25 bar at the first Conrad Hotel in the USA! Cooking with Chef Virgile Brandel from Champage, France, was a fantastic experience. I had never heard of or eaten Avocado fries and they are now one of my new favorite things. I have several videos with him where he taught me  how to make Avocado Fries and the Miami area specialty: A Cuban Sandwich! Erin who assisted me with the filming said it was fantastic! We enjoyed many meals during our stay. Enjoy all the videos about how to make the food and drinks and what we ate. One day after lunch, Stephen Carter, head of Food and Beverage, taught me to make a Miami Mojito, Thyme Well Spent and an Old Cuban. He even offered me a job! Who knows what I will do next!
 The pool and tennis courts for this property are on the roof of the structure across from valet parking. I thought the pool was beautiful especially under the Miami moon. One morning, I had a tennis lesson with Jason Dixon of Tennis Fit Miami. It was great to have a lesson with a new coach. I have been taking lessons in Los Angeles for six months. I highly recommend taking a sports lesson on the road as many people have a resolution to get fit but are not sure how to make time for it. It was great to get instruction from someone else and think about all my progress.
My stay at Conrad Miami definitely inspired me! I want to see more of Miami, take more tennis lessons, learn to cook more things and definitely stay at more Conrad Hotels! Watch my videos to see exactly what it was like:
Conrad Miami is located at Brickell Arch, 1395 Brickell Avenue, Miami, Florida
