Art at The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa
Inspired by Art Basel Miami Beach, a special gathering of art and wine enthusiasts were treated to a tour of The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa’s impressive private art collection on December 6th. As Guests arrived and made their way to Hollywood Prime they were greeted with a sparkling Monetto Prosecco by expert wine sommelier Laura Romano, who also happens to be the General Manager of the AAA Four Diamond-rated steakhouse. “Every day should start with Prosecco,” said Romano. After a warm welcome by The Westin Diplomat’s General Manager Ed Walls, the group turned their attention to the resort’s Director of Guest Services and Fun Jeffrey Mikus who captivated tour goers with his knowledge of the collection worth more than $1 million. “World-renowned artist Dale Chihuly created this hand-blown glass work specifically for The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa,” said Mikus. As Mikus enlightened everyone along the way sprinkling history and anecdotes about the resort’s collection, Romano accompanied with a sampling of sumptuous wines featured at Hollywood Prime. Her keen insight into how the wine is made and how the grapes of each region contribute to the unique flavor of its wine was perfectly paired with delicious hors d’ oeuvres arranged by the resort’s Director of Catering Carolyn Horton. As guests commented on their favorite works throughout the tour, the piece de resistance will likely forever be the final stop in The Diplomat’s Presidential Suite featuring a diverse collection of art worth more than $20,000, live piano music and a magnificent nighttime view of the Atlantic Ocean.
