The Intercontinental Miami hotel is unveiling $30 million in upgrades to the property from owner Strategic Hotels & Resorts, led by a 19-story LED “digital canvas” that will light up the property every night. The renovation also featured designs of guests rooms by tennis star Venus Williams’ V Starr Interiors (V Starr has also designed units at the One Thousand Ocean condominium in Boca Raton) and a new steakhouse, Toro Toro, by chef Richard Sandoval. Laurence Geller, CEO and president of Strategic Hotels and Resorts, said the renovations were “proactive investments” aimed at keeping the hotel a market leader in Miami. — Alexander Britell
