Hotels in South Beach

While known for its ultra-luxurious beachfront resorts, there are hotels in South Beach to fit every budget. For example, the pocket-friendly Catalina Hotel and Beach Club offers VIP passes and free happy hour cocktails so that guests can party like rock stars without breaking the bank. Another affordable alternative to the high-end chains on the beachfront is the Clinton Hotel, just two blocks from South Beach's white sands.

One of the best hotels in South Beach is the SLS Hotel South Beach. Money not a problem? Book the Lenny Kravitz-designed Penthouse Suite. Other upscale lodgings include The Ritz Carlton, The Mondrian and The Standard.

For art connoisseurs looking for a South Beach hotel, the Albion offers guests private tours of their famous contemporary collection, while the Art Deco style of the Delano will impress architecture focused travelers.

A great gay-friendly South Beach Hotel is Lords South Beach. The hotel's App provides guests with a run down of what to do and where to go in the area.
