Hotels in Florida

Opened in the fall of 2014, the Thompson Miami Beach brings the perfect mix of sophisticated design and retro touches to a quieter stretch of Collins Avenue about a mile north of South Beach.

Located on Belle Island, a short walk from South Beach's Sunset Harbour neighborhood and Lincoln Road, the spa's the thing at hotelier André Balazs's Miami Beach outpost, which is the perfect spot for a wellness getaway.

This oceanfront outpost of the London-based boutique hotel and social club, which is a haven for celebrities and bona fide royalty, was created by local architect Allan Shulman and designer Martin Brudnizki.

Nightlife mogul Sam Nazarian and design legend Philippe Starck—the duo behind SLS's sleek Beverly Hills flagship—brought new life to this 1939 Art Deco landmark with the opening of the SLS South Beach in 2012.

More than a decade after its star-studded opening, the Shore Club still manages to regularly pack the house with beautiful people modeling the latest designer swimwear.

At 40 stories high, The Setai rises over South Beach like an opulent obelisk, and is unquestionably the neighborhood's most grown-up hotel.

Opened in 2012, this Miami masterpiece—located directly across from the Bal Harbour Shops—boasts Yabu Pushelberg-designed interiors and hosts a well-manicured crowd keen on high-end shopping, and beachfront yoga and fitness classes from cult trainers Tracie and Christopher Vlaun.

A retro vibe permeates the Royal Palm South Beach, an 393-room Art Deco high-rise that fronts Miami Beach. Spacious (for Miami) rooms range in size from 275 to 1,550 square feet and evoke that same throwback feeling with their terrazzo floors, mod furniture, and sky-blue and sea-green palette.

Though it has changed hands a couple of times in recent years, it's hard to keep a grande dame down. And with designer Tommy Hilfiger as its newest owner, The Raleigh—which regularly hosts runway shows over its iconic, scallop-edged Art Deco Pool—seems to have found a kindred spirit.

Nearly two decades after resurrecting South Beach as an international tourist destination with the opening of the Delano, hotelier Ian Schrager is doing the same for Mid-Beach with The Miami Beach EDITION.

Upon arrival at this 70-story, glass-and-granite edifice in the center of Miami's business district, guests enter a cavernous lobby featuring a high arched ceiling, trickling water wall, and colossal sculptures that are part of the hotel's $3.3 million Latin American art collection.

Morris Lapidus's crescent-shaped landmark has a longstanding reputation for grandeur, and has been one of Miami Beach's defining pieces of architecture for more than 60 years.

As one of the area's most storied hotels, the 1926 Mediterranean-style historic landmark that anchors Coral Gables still feels very Old Florida.

With its four-column portico and signature plantation-style shuttered windows, The Betsy stands out among its neon-lit, Art Deco neighbors with its unique Florida Georgian architecture. Opened in 1942, the L.

Acqualina, an elegant 51-story Mediterranean-inspired tower that mixes touches of Collins Avenue grooviness with Old World nostalgia, is Sunny Isles Beach's answer to South Beach.
