The Breakwater Hotel, a 1936 Art Deco gem, is once again ready for prime time, thanks to a radical renovation that included the addition of the former Edison Hotel next door.  It’s yet another indication of Miami’s hotel explosion, though this top-to-bottom update in 2011 only retained the exterior and the property’s iconic double-sided marque tower and signage: a reminder of architect Anton Skislewicz’s original design, which helped to shape the city’s skyline. Inside, architect Stephen Jacobs went full force. Shunning typical tropical colors, the 100 rooms are done up in white and lime green; 300-square-foot rooms overlook Ocean Drive or the shore itself. But the property’s rebirth is most obvious at the popular redone rooftop deck, where fashion-forward locals and globetrotters sunbathe, cocktails in hand.  

Room to Book:

For the best oceanfront view, try room 430, which is set at the end of the hall on the top floor of the Edison building

Insider Tip:

Don’t miss a dip in the Breakwater’s glass-sided plunge pool, where swimmers feel as though they’re floating above Ocean Drive.
