  • 4.0 Fontainebleau Miami

    Resort Fontainebleau, Miami

    Fodors

    “Vegas meets art deco at this colossal classic, deemed Miami’s biggest hotel after its $1 billion reinvention, which spawned more than 1,500 rooms, 12 renowned restaurants and lounges, LIV nightclub, several sumptuous pools with cabana islands, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a 40,000-square-foot spa.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Miami.

  • 4.3 Betsy Hotel Miami

    The Betsy Hotel South Beach, Miami

    Lonely Planet

    “One of South Beach’s finest hotels, the Betsy has a classy vibe with excellent service and first-rate amenities. The historic gem has two wings, with rooms set in either a colonial style or an art-deco aesthetic.”

  • 4.6 East Hotel Miami

    East Hotel, Miami

    New York Times

    “For those opting out of South Beach there’s East, Miami in Brickell with eye-catching geometric lines designed by the local architecture firm Arquitectonica. Billed as a lifestyle hotel, it houses a series of dining venues, including a coffee shop, an Asian-themed rooftop bar and a fifth-floor restaurant called Quinto La Huella, the first international outpost of Uruguay’s renowned La Huella seaside grill.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Miami.

  • 4.4 Biltmore Hotel Miami

    Biltmore Hotel, Miami

    Frommers

    “The imposing neo-Spanish-colonial pile, rising regally over a 150-acre Coral Gables spread and dating back to city founder George Merrick’s original plan in 1926, has seen a lot of history since, to this day regularly hosting heads of states, CEOs, and celebrities.”

    Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Miami.

  • 4.5 Mandrin Oriental Miami

    Hotel Mandarin Oriental, Miami

    Frommers

    “There are by now an awful lot of pretty great—even splendid—luxury hotels throughout Miami’s Brickell Avenue/financial/office district just south of downtown. But the one I still find among the most contemporary Miami in spirit is the cool wedge-shaped property a quick pop over the bridge on Brickell Key.”

    Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Miami.

  • 4.2 Cadillac Hotel Miami

    Cadillac Hotel, Miami

    New York Times

    “It’s hard to beat the oceanfront view at the 357-room Cadillac Hotel in mid-Miami Beach, and recently restored to the architect Roy France’s original 1940 Art Deco design.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Miami.

  • 4.4 Nautilus Hotel Miami

    Nautilus a Sixty Hotel, Miami Beach

    New York Times

    “The recently restored Nautilus, a Sixty Hotel, on Collins Avenue, was originally built in the 1950s by the neo-Baroque architect Morris Lapidus. Its contemporary lobby features nods to the era, with semicircular velvet sofas and gilded accents. Behind it is a saltwater pool with a garden leading straight to the beach.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Miami.

  • 4.4 Lord Balfour Hotel Miami

    Room Mate Lord Balfour Hotel, Miami

    New York Times

    “Despite the stylish décor and classy location, the Lord Balfour is low on stuffiness. Service is friendly. Glitz is minimal. Clientele was composed mainly of what looked to be upper-middle-class families and couples rather than the jet-setters who frequent the five-star palaces farther up South Beach. If you don’t demand pomp or pampering, Lord Balfour is a charming host.”

  • 4.5 Soho Beach House Miami

    Soho Beach House, Miami

    CNN

    “A 50-room hotel tower annexed to the grounds of a members-only club, Soho Beach House offers a quiet, intimate take on the best of Miami experience. With the exception of the courtyard restaurant Cecconi’s, on-site amenities here are off-limits to the general public.”

  • 4.0 Freehand Miami

    Freehand, Miami

    Telegraph

    “This hip hotel-hostel with both private and shared rooms anchored by Broken Shaker, Miami Beach’s most popular cocktail bar, is something of an anomaly; at once one of Miami’s trendiest and most affordable hotels. There is a lush, inviting courtyard and pool courting Miami Beach locals, as well as 27 Restaurant.”

  • 4.4 Vagabond Miami

    The Vagabond Hotel, Miami

    New York Times

    “If you don’t need to be within walking distance of the sand and surf, consider the mainland’s Vagabond Hotel, a 1950s roadside inn given a retro-chic overhaul.”
    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Miami.

  • 4.2 Langford Hotel Miami

    Eurostars Langford Hotel, Miami

    Lonely Planet

    “Set in a beautifully restored 1925 beaux-arts high-rise, the Langford opened to much fanfare in 2016. Its 126 rooms blend comfort and nostalgia, with elegant fixtures and vintage details, including white oak flooring and glass-encased rain showers.”

  • 4.3 Croydon Hotel Miami

    Hotel Croydon, Miami

    New York Times

    “The Hotel Croydon is a reasonably priced, convenient and comfortable option with perks that make choosing it worthwhile. Two selling points are the outdoor spaces: the pool on the ground floor and the spacious roof deck, which offers views of the ocean and the surrounding city.”

  • 4.2 Washington Park Miami

    Washington Park Hotel South Beach, Miami

    Lonely Planet

    “In a great location two blocks from the beach, the Washington Park is spread among five beautifully restored art-deco buildings fronted by a pool and a palm-fringed courtyard.”

  • 4.7 Four Seasons Surf Club Miami

    Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club, Miami

    CN Traveler

    “If you’re looking for seclusion and don’t mind paying top dollar for it, The Surf Club is a wonderful option, and more centrally located than the many luxury resorts you’ll find in Sunny Isles Beach.”

    Featured in CN Traveler’s 2018 Hot List.
