From beachside bungalows to starchitect-designed penthouses in the sky, Miami has no shortage of glamorous digs from which to choose—which is hardly surprising for one of America’s glitziest cities.

The best 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 legendary Fontainebleau, a popular destination for the likes of Frank Sinatra, still revels in its legacy, yet a recent renovation brought it thoroughly into the modern era. Meanwhile, 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. But no matter what your preferences, when deciding where to stay in Miami, rest assured, there’s a wide range not short on luxe amenities.
