Hotels in Florida

The L. Murray Dixon–built Hotel Victor has been restored in high sybaritic fashion by celebrated French designer Jacques Garcia.

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.

Casa Morada, in the Florida Keys, is the brainchild of partners Lauren Abrams, Terry Ford, and Heide Praver Werthamer, who collectively spent 24 years picking up the tricks of the trade while working at various Ian Schrager hotels.

Part of the family of Disney Value Resorts at Walt Disney World, Disney’s Pop Century Resort is inspired by all things pop culture from the 1950’s through the 1990’s.

The charming inn (1857) is the state’s oldest hotel. The veranda-rimmed Cracker-style building houses 22 individually decorated en suite rooms, half with working fireplaces. There’s also a camellia-heavy garden.

It’s all about golf at Innisbrook, a resort on 900 acres just five miles east of Florida’s Gulf Coast beaches.

At the recently renovated 13-acre Key Largo Grande Resort & Beach Club, you'll find dark wood accents and imported Italian tile floors.

Opened in 1998, this sprawling beachfront hotel is located on South Beach’s famed Collins Avenue, lined with historic Art Deco hotels built in the 1960’s.

Located in a 1923 building on the corner of historic Lake Eola Park, EO Inn & Urban Spa's 17 rooms and five suites create a peaceful atmosphere with soft waterfall sounds, Ben Van Hook's black-and-white photos and a muted interior design by Carter Wolf.

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.
