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.
