Whether you’re looking for cuisine, culture, or nature, THesis Hotel Miami has it all. Explore the charming city of Coral Gables from this stylish and comfortable hotel.
Inspired by visits to Spain and Italy, George Merrick founded Coral Gables, one of Miami’s most desirable neighborhoods, in 1925 . Merrick commissioned architects to create signature landmarks such as the Biltmore Hotel, the Venetian Pool, and the Miracle Mile. The University of Miami, the Lowe Art Museum and the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden are also found here, as is the new Thesis Hotel.
The Thesis Hotel, which opened next door to the University of Miami in 2020, boasts 245 contemporary guest rooms, a secluded rooftop pool with a poolside bar and terrace and two in-house gourmet restaurants.
Guests staying at the AAA Four Diamond Thesis Hotel in Coral Gables have great dining options.
One of Food & Wine Magazine’s Best New Chefs of 2020, Chef Niven Patel, has two impressive restaurants inside the Thesis, the popular Mamey restaurant and his latest, Orno. Attentive service, a wonderful farm to table menu, wood-fired pizzas, grilled octopus, whole grilled branzino and well crafted seasonal cocktails – try the Holy Cow: Dickle Barrel Select Whiskey, Lemon, Orange, Cardamom, Apple, Ginger and Clarified Milk Punch.
Mamey has a great happy hour served on the third floor poolside terrace. Two must tries are the Island Chips with Tomatillo Salsa and the Ghee Roasted Plantains. Like all of Chef Niven’s endeavors, Mamey features locally grown produce, sourced from his own farm, Rancho Patel, in Homestead, Florida. Mamey’s seasonal offerings are complemented by fun, innovative cocktails, like the Jerk Margarita.
