The Langford Hotel is open for business.
The Downtown Miami boutique hotel was built in 1925 and just had its grand opening. It has 126 guest rooms and features a couple of PubbellyBoys creations in restaurant PB Station and rooftop lounge Pawn Broker.
"It would have been easier to have this property demolished and build a high rise," Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado said at the ribbon-cutting event. "But I grew up walking the streets of downtown with this building ... Today we are happy we kept this piece of history."
Formerly the Miami National Bank, the property was designated a historic site in 1989.
