In honor of the Miami Heat moving into the next round of the NBA playoffs against the New York Knicks, The Elser Hotel & Residences is “bringing the heat” with a luxe VIP experience for New York-based fans to attend playoff Game 3 or 4 in Miami. The Ultimate VIP Playoff Experience, which starts at $52,000, includes a private luxury jet and local helicopter service via Blade Air Mobility, Inc (“Blade”), a yacht experience onboard a Spectre Sea vessel (with drop-off directly at Kaseya Center), and overnight accommodations at The Elser, steps from the arena.
“We are thrilled to partner with Blade and Spectre Sea to offer this slam-dunk VIP hotel package for fans in New York who want to experience the playoff games in Miami,” said Michael Stephens, general manager of The Elser. “At The Elser, we always think of ways to deliver unforgettable, stellar experiences for our guests along with elite service.”
Guests will depart from one of Blade’s private lounges in New York, where complimentary on-site valet service is available. After an approximately 2-hour private jet flight, guests will arrive rested and relaxed at Blade Lounge Miami at Opa Locka Executive Airport. A helicopter will whisk them away to Downtown Miami, where a luxurious Spectre Sea yacht awaits to bring the guests directly to Kaseya Center, after a cocktail hour and cruise around the bay, with VIP access with tickets to the game. Afterward, guests will check into their luxe three-bedroom accommodations at The Elser. They can then enjoy dinner at the renowned Jaguar Sun restaurant before retiring to their rooms and enjoying champagne breakfast in bed at The Elser the following morning.
