Coral Gables: The Queen

This is the Queen of Coral Gables, the Biltmore Hotel, crown jewel of Miami for the last three-quarters of a century. Built in the 1920's, the Biltmore has had a fascinating history, going from gathering place for the international elite in the 20's and 30's, to Army barracks and hospital during WWII (origing of many of the haunts in the hotel), to dilapidated and abandoned has-been, to renewed luxury hotel.

I LOVE this building, and seeing it always makes me smile.

Wow, it really looks grand! I'm sure they also have a lot of wedding ceremonies there because of the setting...
