Gloria Estefan and her husband, Emilio Estefan, have breathed new life into their Cardozo South Beach Hotel -- and it's a beauty. The hotel is located in a prime location of Miami, right on Ocean Drive, and it is everything you expect during a stay in the popular city. The couple unveiled the newly renovated hotel and held a grand opening in June, and it looks like the $15 million dollars they invested into it surely paid off. 

The Art Deco-inspired Cardozo Hotel was built in 1939 and has 41 guest rooms and suites throughout its three floors, and Gloria is known to have said that she dreamed of owning it as a child. Fast-forward to 2019, and the singer and her husband have reinvented the hotel--all while maintaining its distinct style.
