The openings of the Langford hotel and ME Miami signify the first hotel developments in the center of downtown Miami’s urban core in recent years.
In a long-forgotten corridor of downtown Miami, two black flags with gold lettering swayed from the historic Miami National Bank building, signaling a new spirit of hospitality in Miami’s urban core.
“The Langford,” each flag read, named after the first boutique hotel of its kind to take residence downtown — in a building from 1925, no less. The Beaux Arts-style hotel includes touches from the last century: 1920s-style sinks, 1940s sailor tattoo-inspired wallpaper and 1950s Cadillac seat-inspired headboards.
