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.

When Ian Schrager opened the Delano, a revamped 1940s Art Deco building, in 1995, it was considered a brave, even misguided move, as South Beach was then seedy indeed. But the hotel changed local narratives of design and geography.

The hotel has the advantages of a Disney property (i.e., early entry to a different park each day) but more flexible pricing.

The 54 rooms at South Beach’s Riviera Hotel are surprisingly spacious (at least 700 square feet), given the prime location a couple of blocks from the ocean and near the Bass Museum of Art.

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.

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.

Commanding an enviable position on the Seven Seas Lagoon, and a short boat ride from the Magic Kingdom’s front gates, the South Seas–inflected Polynesian is a circa-1971 Disney original.

With at least 80 inns and B&B's squeezed onto the eight-square-mile island, Key West may well be America's most "inn" town. So what makes the Mermaid & the Alligator stand out?

Just two blocks from the St. Johns River, this three-story home has been carefully restored since it was built in 1902 as the home of a well-to-do entrepreneur. A pitched gable roof shelters the 600-square-foot main house, which has six uniquely decorated rooms.

The grand antebellum-like property has plenty of on-site distractions, including a superb golf course and large rooms, some with water views.
