A flood of new and renovated hoteling options is set to bombard Miami Beach (and Miami, but mostly Miami Beach) in the next few months, reports HotelChatter, in a big roundup. On the list: the 1 Hotel (March 13th), Element Miami Doral (March 5th), Aloft South Beach (April 16th), AC Hotels by Marriott (April), Hyatt Centric South Beach (The first location of the brand. April), the Washington Park Hotel, and the Nautilus. The Joie de Vivre Hotel called The Hall is coming. Oh, and the Hotel Croydon recently reopened after its extensive renovation. Finally, of course, the Lords Hotel/Hotel Nash has dropped the "gay hotel" thing long ago and is becoming the Hotel Stiles. And HotelChatter has some interesting news regarding the former Canyon Ranch, which is set to debut a new concept by two veteran hoteliers.
