The Museum of Ice Cream may have opened inside the Faena District for all of your on-trend, Millennial pink Instagram staging enjoyment, but Florida hotels seems to have been ahead of the trend with this of-the-moment hue.

Wait, what exactly is Millennial pink and why should we care, you ask? The color seems to have hit its saturation point in summer 2016, ranging from pale blush pink to salmon-coral. The color continues to crop up everywhere from fashion to design and as ubiquitous Instagram backdrops, thus declared the color of the generation.
