The 2017 Lincoln Continental Blogger Event in Miami
The presidential car for over 40 years. Have you seen the new 2017 Lincoln Continental? It has to be the best reboot of a classic we have experience to date. Last Tuesday we were picked up by a private chauffeur and drove around town on the new 2017 Lincoln Continental. Our first stop was at the Mandarin Oriental restaurant where Lincoln Motor Company hosted us to an exclusive showcase. We enjoyed a 5 star lunch alongside other notable bloggers from the Miami area. The vibe through out the event was of respect, that which Lincoln has for the Hispanic market in Miami and the rest of the United States. The attention to detail and luxury for the client was an experience that I wish everyone could enjoy. We can imagine it is a feeling enjoyed everyday by Continental owners.
The Lincoln Experience was broken down into three experiences. First, the scrumptious lunch at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami. Then we had an intimate discussion with Robert Parker (Lincoln); Lily Lopez, President & CEO, South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Robert Lowe, General Manager of the Mandarin Oriental Miami regarding exceptional value of service. But our favorite part was the Photography experience at Little River Studios with Shayna Batya, a behind the scenes look of a successful photo shoot. Not only because photography is related to art but because we actually got to drive the 2017 Continental. Our short-lived ride from Brickell to Little River was amazing. We can confirm that all the stories you’ve been told about the Continental are true, the car does drive like a cloud. Driving a smooth and stabilized ride on the harsh urban roads of Miami was a rare treat.
Here are some pictures from the Lincoln Continental Event.

- Robert Lowe, General Manager of the Mandarin Oriental, spoke to the many awards won by his hotel’s client service, allowing a perfect connection back to the investments being made by Lincoln in its client experience – The Lincoln Way. Exceptional service is what distinguishes a 5-star hotel from a 4-star hotel. As luxury brands, that is the reason that the Mandarin Oriental and The Lincoln Motor Company invests in this important aspect.
