Hotels in Miami

Hotels in Miami are known for their colorful façades and design pedigrees; Ian Schrager, André Balazs, and Todd Oldham are just a few of the big names who have contributed their exceptional taste to South Beach properties. Many Miami hotels are small, boutique affairs, designed in the Art Deco style and located right on the beach. The Angler’s Boutique Resort in South Beach merges original 1930s Mediterranean revival architecture with a chic interior done up in tasteful neutrals. Guests of The Angler can rent a pair of private poolside cabanas and feast on a Mediterranean-inspired dinner provided by the hotels’ on-site restaurant, 660 Mediterranean Kitchen.

For design and architecture lovers, this Miami hotel is a must-visit: The interior was designed by J. Wallace Tutt III, who also designed the sumptuous Ocean Drive mansion that belonged to Gianni Versace. The Betsy South Beach – formerly known as the Betsy Ross – boasts a palatial white façade and an interior done up in a modern, colonial-meets-tropical style. Guests staying at the Betsy can take a dip in the hotel’s indoor courtyard pool, grab a bite at the on-site restaurant, Laurent Tourondel’s BLT Steak, or grab a specialty cocktail at one of the hotel’s two bars. Of course, guests can easily step out onto the beach as well.

Formerly Regent Bal Harbour

With some 40 floors, the Setai rises over South Beach like an opulent obelisk, serving as a playground for damn-the-expense visitors.

With its lush gardens, oceanfront pool, and full-service Aveda spa, The Palms Hotel & Spa Miami enjoys esteemed status on chic South Beach.

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.

Kor Hotels and its design doyenne Kelly Wearstler strike again—this time in downtown Miami. Using her signature spin on Hollywood Regency and chinoiserie, she has transformed what could have been just another drab high-rise into a bold statement.

Regent Bal Harbour became One Bal Harbour in 2009.

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 ultra-exclusive Casa Tua is a five-suite hotel housed inside a Mediterranean-inspired mansion. Complete with ornate columns, spiral staircases, and manicured grounds, the hotel has the feel of an opulent private estate.

Formerly Angler's Boutique Resort

Besides the Mandarin's trademark luxury Asian touches, the reason to stay here is the view of the downtown Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay.

This 1926 Mediterranean-style historic landmark that anchors Coral Gables still feels very Old Florida. The palm-adorned central courtyard's gurgling fountain and grand entrance-inspiring lobby have seen the likes of Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, and an assortment of Vanderbilts.

Rising above Biscayne Bay, the 56-room Tempo Miami is located in the heart of downtown Miami near the city’s arts and entertainment district.

This Art Deco hotel in South Beach is just two blocks from the famed Ocean Drive and the beach. Reflecting its location in the Art Deco District, the Hotel Astor's lobby includes the property's original 1938 Vitrolite wall panels.
