MIAMI — When you open the front door of the new Mayfair House Hotel & Garden — the original carved wooden door that has been lovingly restored — you enter the past and gaze into the future.

Your first step inside reveals a lush tropical garden, an oasis away from the bustling streets of Coconut Grove. Walk out into the open-air courtyard filled with greenery and gaze at the floors above, where outdoor walkways lead to cool, dark, elegant rooms. Grab a seat, order a drink and marvel that somehow, miraculously, a piece of the Grove’s past has been preserved.
