Who we are...

In the summer of 2009, husband and wife team Walter and Shirley Figueroa set out to open the first boutique hotel in Miami’s Modern Architectural District (also known as MiMo). The New Yorker Boutique Hotel is set in a classic Miami motel from the 1950s and has been in their family for 30 years. Shirley’s father, who immigrated to Miami from Cuba after the Cuban revolution bought the motel back in 1980 from the original owners and since then has made a living renting out the rooms to anyone looking for affordable accommodations in Miami.
