Maximo & Roque, aka @TheHotelBoys, are Miami bothers who have exploded onto the culinary scene. From family recipes to collabs with beloved local businesses, @TheHotelBoys bring fun – and a little funny – to all things food, travel, and lifestyle.

@TheHotelBoys started as a private Instagram account run by their mom and dad, who coined their name “The Hotel Boys” because they work in the hospitality industry.  Like most social media accounts, @TheHotelBoys intended to serve as a virtual photo album to share Maximo and Roque’s memories from trips as they got to travel the globe with their hotel hopping parents with family and friends.

Fast forward to 2019, at 12 years old, Maximo asked his parents to allow him to take the account public with his own creative direction as he wanted to focus more on lifestyle, fashion, and all things travel related. Within a few short months, he grew his account from 500 to 2K followers.

Then, the pandemic hit.  Stuck at home with nowhere to go, Maximo learned to cook.  He started experimenting in the kitchen and documenting the process, with all the support of his shy yet comical, little brother Roque who does not discriminate against any foods. Making great food and having fun doing it turned out to be the recipe to the next evolution of their account, and people started to dig in. Major food bloggers from all across the U.S. began to interact with @TheHotelBoys online! These food celebs challenged the boys to recreate, not only their recipes, but also those of professional chefs. The kitchen was a mess, but their account continued to grow.

As the post lockdown restrictions eased, local restaurants, bakeries, and at home start up businesses reached out to @TheHotelBoys to assist with promoting their restaurants and food. Hotels from all over the country reached out to promote safety measures as a way to build comfort and confidence in the consumers.  @TheHotelBoys delivered content that got their followers excited to support local business and travel again in their own authentic way.

Now in 2021, Maximo, 13, and Roque, 9-years-old, @TheHotelBoys have been adopted by the local food and hospitality scene.  With the support, collaborations, and shout outs of local celebrity chefs such as Jose Mendin, Scott Liquist, all the way to NYC based, two-time Chopped winner, Einat Admony, as well as Influencers in the food scene with a combined following well in the millions who have taken the boys under their wing as their account has grown to now 11k+ followers.
