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.
Upon arrival at this 70-story, glass-and-granite edifice in the center of Miami’s business district, guests enter a cavernous lobby featuring a high arched ceiling, trickling water wall, and colossal sculptures that are part of the hotel’s $3.3 million Latin American art collection.
With five championship-caliber golf courses, spa facilities and luxurious amenities, prestigious Doral Golf Resort & Spa gives guests an unforgettable experience.

Located on Key Biscayne, Crandon Park is often lauded as one of the best beaches in the nation. The two-mile stretch of shoreline is known for its clean sand and calm waters, the result of a sand bar that protects swimmers from strong waves.
Owned by Italian clothing company Diesel, the Pelican Hotel is an eclectic property in the midst of Ocean Drive’s bustling nightlife scene.
A 1940 Art Deco masterpiece that served as a backdrop for many Esther Williams films, this hotel delivers the grace and pure fantasy of old-line Miami. After an Andre Balazs update in 2002, it's now filled with wicker furniture and done in a color scheme of muted tans and olive greens.
Situated along South Beach’s famous Ocean Drive, The Betsy is one of Miami’s premier beachfront boutique hotels. With its expansive four-column portico and signature shuttered windows, the Georgian building stands out among its Art Deco neighbors.
Formerly Regent Bal Harbour
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.
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.
