Officially called "Kimpton Hotel Palomar South Beach," the new hotel on the corner of Alton Road and the Collins Canal, overlooking Dade Boulevard in Miami Beach, has announced they are opening "late 2019" as construction workers hustle to finish the job. The hotel is hedging its bets, however, and only taking reservations for April 2020 and later.
For a long time, Surfside was a small, approachable little town by the sea. Yes, it was home to one of Miami's few old bastions of faded aristocracy known as the Surf Club, and the entrance to Indian Creek Village, the island-sized escape where literally all of the approximately fifty homes are in the $10 million+ range. Oh, and it also always butted right up against the uber-deluxe Bal Harbour Village. Yet, Surfside has always been modest; much more like Miami Beach's North Beach neighborhood, directly to the south, than anything else adjacent to it. That is until now. When the Surf Club was bought out by the Four Seasons and redone in grand style, that gigantic and extremely high-end project led a torrent of new ultra-luxury development in the area.
