There are still three and a half months until the new-look Miami Heat takes the court for the 2010-11 season, but South Beach hotels are already offering up specials in honor of the Three Kings – LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
The Gansevoort Hotel in Miami Beach (2377 Collins Ave.) has created a “Heat Suite” to give high-end guests a chance to experience life like a superstar basketball player. For a mere $2,500 a night, the suite package includes a one-bedroom suite with an ocean-view balcony; use of a Ferrari F430 for a day; and a private VIP cabana at Plunge, the hotel’s rooftop lounge; the Three Kings’ jersey of your choice; and passes to David Barton Gym.
There’s more: get snacks endorsed by James – Sprite, Powerade, Lightning Lemonade Bubblicious gum; and an iPod outfitted with James’ favorite music, including by his pal Jay Z. The suite includes “Heat”-style candies such as Hot Tamales and Red Hots, natch.

Meanwhile, the Hotel Victor is offering the public a shot at its penthouse “Fit for a King” – with a retail value of $10,000 a night – for $163 for one night – in honor of the jersey numbers of the trio (Bosh 1; James 6; Wade 3).
All the hotel at 1144 Ocean Drive is asking is for fans to “like” its Facebook page – Facebook.com/HotelVictor for a shot at the special penthouse deal.
