Hotels in Florida
Florida is known as the go-to place to vacation, so Florida hotels certainly live up to the standard. Rent a beach condo in the Panhandle, a cottage in the Keys, or go all-out at a luxury high-rise in Miami. For a luxury experience outside of the buzzing city streets, try The Breakers in Palm Beach. The hotel offers high-end amenities, with two 18-hole golf courses, snorkeling right off the beach property, and four pools to cool off in. Their spa is also famous, and the hotel offers childcare and children’s activities as well. Hotels in Florida are known for their great ocean views. Eden Roc Miami Beach is no exception. The resort echoes old 1950’s charm and its updated renovations make it one of the best luxury spots in the area. It sports an infinity-edge pool and oceanfront views in many suites. Cheeca Lodge and Spa has six tennis courts, a huge private beach and its own fishing pier. Its luxury amenities and its own saltwater lagoon for snorkeling make it an ideal place to stay in the Florida Keys. You’ll find just what you need with the variety of hotels in Florida.
True to its name, Palm Beach, Florida’s PGA National Resort & Spa is best known as the home of the Professional Golfers Association of America and the Championship course (one of five on-site courses). For some guests, however, the primary draw of PGA National isn’t on the links.
Formerly Angler's Boutique Resort
Located in the Art Deco District, the historic National Hotel provides a quiet retreat from the party atmosphere of Collins Avenue. The beachfront property retains much of its 1930’s design, from the pale-yellow stucco façade to the lobby’s geometric wall sconces and vintage barrel chairs.
A testament to opulence and design, The Villa by Barton G. is a creative collaboration between event planner Barton G. Weiss and designer Gianni Versace. The 19,000-square-foot luxury boutique hotel houses 10 suites decorated in a variety of lavish styles, ranging from Egyptian to Baroque.
Oceanfront resort 10 minutes north of downtown, with access to a secluded beach (a rarity in Naples) and a Bob Cupp-designed golf course.
A sweeping porte cochere greets visitors at this graceful Modernist hotel from the 1940s, which also functions as a contemporary art gallery.
On a grassy campus, the inn has large rooms with cherrywood furniture, some that sleep four. The shady picnic area’s a great place for breakfast outdoors.
Miami has been a city of big, brash hotels since the 1950’s. Although the landscape is always changing, a few properties rise above the rest, including South Beach’s Tides.
This luxury resort sits on 300 acres in Aventura, a suburb of Miami. The hotel’s terracotta roof and lush landscaping lend the feel of a Mediterranean villa, and the guest rooms and suites are decorated in a soothing neutral palette with red-orange and pale green accents.
The oceanfront property newly reopened with its stellar snorkeling program intact. Stay in one of 212 tropical-chic rooms then dine at the Atlantic's Edge restaurant, where the chef will prepare your own catch.
There’s more than just the appealingly retro name: the basic but clean rooms have kitchens, and the parking spaces are big enough to accommodate both a car and a boat.
South Florida hotel spas trembled at the arrival of Canyon Ranch in Miami in 2007, when they annexed and renovated the old Carillion Hotel.
