Mr. C Miami – Coconut Grove is the latest premier luxury boutique hotel conceived by Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani, a fourth-generation hotelier family. Giuseppe Cipriani opened Harry’s Bar off of a tiny street off Venice’s Piazza San Marco in 1931. Today, almost 90 years later, brothers Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani have drawn on their rich family history to create the luxury hospitality and residential brand known as Mr. C. Cipriani is internationally renowned for its restaurants, hotels, and residences with locations in metropolitan destinations including Beverly Hills and Manhattan, and now Miami.
“We are extremely excited to be part of the revitalization of such a wonderful neighborhood known for its iconic history. With the opening of our first hotel in Florida, we could not be more pleased to have partnered with such valued and respected entities that truly embrace the community they serve.” – Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani
The award-winning architecture firm, Arquitectonica, conceived the exterior design modeled after the pier-like Stiltsville structures located off the Florida Cape. The property has gold-level LEED certification for environmental sustainability as well as green energy-efficient lighting.
AD100 interior designer, Martin Brudnizki, designed the 100-room, 6-story boutique property overlooking Biscayne Bay. The nautical look of the resort, as shown by its azure and white-colored terrazzo floors and glossy wood paneling, is influenced both by coastal Italian culture, and the sleek interior of a yacht or cruise ship.
‘We wanted to capture the timeless charm of Italy’s iconic coastal style, with high gloss timber paneling, chrome or lacquer detailing, and comfortable curves in the furniture. We’ve then added a layer of mid-century Italy, as Murano glass chandeliers hang above large-scale terrazzo floors. The combination of the shapes and materiality of the mid-century yacht-style works perfectly with Miami, a city famous for its oceanfront and also one famous for its own modernist architectural style. They seem to fuse perfectly and so the hotel feels like it’s always been there.’’ – Martin Brudnizki
The property also features a rooftop pool and private cabanas; two signature Italian dining establishments including the signature Bellini rooftop restaurant and Il Giardino creperie and outdoor terrace cafe; a fitness center featuring Technogym equipment, personal trainers and yoga classes; a wellness center and spa complete with BeAtala products, a private sauna, and treatment room; and a ballroom for weddings or private events.
Founded in the late 1800s and characterized by its Royal Ponciana tree-lined streets, lush green parks, and grand residences, Coconut Grove has long been favored by artists, intellectuals, and those seeking a tropical oasis of tranquility within Miami. The elegant Mr. C property brings an old-world European sensibility and flair to the historic neighborhood.
Mr. C Miami – Coconut Grove is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World as well as luxury hospitality networks including American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts, Virtuoso Preferred Hotels, Signature Travel Network, Select Hotels, Ensemble Travel Group, Serandipians, Four Diamond Preferred, and the recipient of the 2021 Traveler’s Choice on Trip Advisor.
