How Will Grandma Get There? Ideally Grams would stay at the hotel, which offers a discounted rate if a block of rooms is reserved (rates for May 2016 average $409/night for non-wedding guests). The bride and groom receive a complimentary suite for the night of the wedding.

The Report: 

The Biltmore Hotel was built in 1926 as part of the Biltmore Hotel chain. Designated a National Landmark in 1996, the hotel once served as a WWII hospital as well as part of the University of Miami medical school in 1968, eventually becoming a hotel again in 1987. In it’s heyday, the hotel hosted such distinguished guests as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Al Capone, Bing Crosby, and Ginger Rodgers. Today, the hotel features a Culinary Academy, spa, as well as a championship golf course.

Woman Getting Married Says:

I grew up visiting the Biltmore Hotel on special occasions, and to this day it remains one of the most elegant wedding venues in Miami. It’s definitely the type of wedding venue (like The Plaza in New York City) that little girls dream about getting married in. If you’re looking for something funky and eclectic, this is not the space. However, if you’re looking for a gorgeous and classic historic wedding venue (and you have the budget), no Miami search is complete without stopping here.
