Perry South Beach
Formerly Gansevoort Miami Beach
Perched at the buzzier end of Miami Beach’s main entertainment strip, Collins Avenue, this sprawling blue-and-white hotel is like a nautical space ship idling on the edge of the ocean. The 334 rooms are some of the largest on the beach, decked out in a palette of gray and pink with vintage black-and-white beach-beauty photos on the walls; the vast, slate-paneled bathrooms with their roomy rainforest showers are like their own mini-spas. The facilities are ample and sceney—and include a 40,000-square-foot David Barton gym, three trendy restaurants, and two pools (one an adults-only rooftop oasis with champagne cart and DJ).
