From the art deco districts of Miami to the sophisticated glamour of Fort Lauderdale, no trip to South Florida is complete without a stopover stay in Hollywood. The movie clad boulevards of LA are a far cry from the sleepy, art soaked streets of Hollywood’s downtown area – which is exactly why it’s worth a visit. Sitting within the centre of it all is CIRC, an effortlessly chic boutique hotel with all the hallmarks of a showstopper – both in sheer size and interior design. The 12-storey high-rise is clad with contemporary art by local artists and the lobby acts as both a meeting space and an art gallery inspired by the area’s burgeoning arts and cultural scene.
In early 2019, the hotel launched its “Suite Art” programme, where local and national artists were each commissioned to paint one of the hotel’s suites with murals inspired by the city they are from, while every corner and wall of the hotel’s winding corridors is filled with dazzling art installations.
On the 12th floor sits a rooftop pool and the hotel’s chic MUSE lounge, which is by far the shining star of all the hotel’s amenities. With bright painted walls and plush sun loungers, the roof oozes an all-American pool party vibe perfect for late afternoons spent sunning and sipping cocktails. The space is popular with both hotel guests and locals who congregate on weekends over sunsets, DJ sets and panoramic views, bestowing a vibey and urban glitz to the place as night falls.
CIRC’s Olivia Restaurant & Bar occupies an airy and spacious spot beyond the lobby on the ground floor. Serving authentic Italian cuisine with a resident Mozzarella bar (yes, you heard that right), the restaurant is lively and abuzz on weekends, while private dining area – The Cellar, offers a dimly lit and opulent space for a quieter and more intimate affair.
Rooms are plush, light and airy, with luxurious robes and spacious bathrooms.
Located a stone’s throw from Downtown Hollywood and between greater Miami and Fort Lauderdale, CIRC offers guests a delightfully comfortable and stylish stay with a hint of luxury, while ensuring the perfect launchpad for exploring the local areas.
