The Biltmore Hotel, Coral Gables, Florida

The hotel now offers Friday night Cigars Under the Stars dinners in the courtyard café, an alfresco dining and smoking experience. On Sept. 12 the hotel inaugurated the first of what is hoped to be regular black-tie cigar dinners in the Granada Ballroom. And the humidor is being expanded to 10 feet by 20 feet, with a cigar roller on the premises.
"We wanted to do cigars on the same grand scale as everything else in the hotel," says Doucette.
The Biltmore, on the Register of National Historic Places, is a grand place to escape from the mundane world to the ambiance of world class.
