    The Miami Beach EDITION
    Miami Beach, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1938 reviewsTripAdvisor (1938)
    Free WiFi

    Slightly removed from the noise and action of South Beach, The Miami Beach EDITION is a 3.5-acre beachfront resort-style hotel with a wealth of distinctive amenities. The hotel features the unique BASEMENT complex that includes a nightclub, a bowling alley and a 2,000-square-foot ice skating rink – all accessible for an additional charge. If you're more interested in relaxing, you can schedule a treatment at the spa; meditate in the relaxation lounge or at the outdoor Sandbox; lounge by the 1950s-inspired pool deck; or play in the sand on the hotel's 70,000 square feet of shoreline. Other activities include a 24-hour fitness center that offers group classes and personal training (for an extra fee), the Limited EDITION boutique gift shop and two bars. After working up an appetite, guests can enjoy Latin cuisine from chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten at the Matador Room. Or, for something more casual, grab a bite at Market at EDITION or the hotel's alfresco eatery, Tropicale. When it's time to sleep, guests can retreat to their rooms, where they'll find rainforest showers, flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers and complimentary Wi-Fi access (which is covered by the daily resort fee). Recent visitors were impressed with the style and ample amenities at the hotel, as well as the top-notch customer service.

    COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach
    Miami Beach, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1628 reviewsTripAdvisor (1628)
    Free WiFi

    Located on Collins Avenue just north of South Beach, COMO by Metropolitan Miami Beach offers the best of both worlds for travelers seeking close access to the nightlife hot spots on Ocean Drive without the crowds. According to recent guests, this boutique hotel has exceptional service and a personable staff. Guests commend the high quality of food at the on-site Traymore as well, which includes locally sourced seafood. Visitors can also dine poolside in cabanas or unwind at the COMO Shambhala Urban Escape wellness center. The spa features a steam room and a rooftop hydrotherapy pool, plus an extensive spa menu and fitness classes. Past guests also appreciated the stylish and comfortable rooms, which feature minibars, flat-screen TVs and rainfall showers. If an ocean view is important to you, spring for an upgraded room on a higher floor for a panoramic vista of the water and beach. The only downside some travelers mentioned is that the room rates, dining prices and spa treatments can be pretty expensive.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2097 reviewsTripAdvisor (2097)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    This all-suite hotel wins lodgers over with its central location (just a block from Key West's lively Duval Street) and amenities. Some of the most noteworthy perks offered here are covered by the property's daily $35 resort fee, including Dove ice cream bars and chocolates distributed during turndown service and the complimentary smoothies, bottled water and fresh fruit available at the property's two swimming pools. In-room amenities include flat-screen TVs, H2O toiletries, coffee makers and fully equipped kitchens. After you've gotten your fill of complimentary wine and snacks at the daily happy hour, head to the on-site restaurant – Ambrosia – for some Japanese eats. Recent guests also said the hotel's location means there are plenty of delicious restaurants within walking distance. It's the thoughtful extras and a friendly staff that have many recent visitors wishing they could stay here year-round.

    The Gardens Hotel Key West
    Key West, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2011 reviewsTripAdvisor (2011)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    As its name suggests, The Gardens Hotel Key West's lush grounds are the focal point of this historic boutique hotel. Offering up a feeling of seclusion, the gardens (along with the property's smaller size) ensure you can relax and enjoy Key West, Florida's island lifestyle. (The quaint pool and aviary certainly help, too.) The Gardens Hotel is just two blocks away from Key West's lively Duval Street and sits within a mile of must-see sites like Mallory Square, the Southernmost Point and the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum. Just make sure to grab a bite while out exploring. Even though the hotel offers drinks, lighter fare and complimentary breakfast – which is excellent, according to previous guests – at its on-site pool bar and wine gallery, it does not offer full meals for lunch and dinner. Once you're ready for a little R&R, retreat to one of 20 guest rooms. Featuring plantation-style furnishings and hardwood floors, all of The Garden Hotel's accommodations boast Keurig coffee makers, flat-screen TVs and balconies, decks or verandahs, among other amenities. And for the ultimate luxury, consider reserving one of four Garden Cottages; removed from the main house, these lodging options offer more square footage and share a private pool. Other options include an additional cottage set in a secluded part of the property and a suite with a private sauna.

    The Lodge & Club at Ponte Vedra Beach
    Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 386 reviewsTripAdvisor (386)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    This Mediterranean-themed, boutique hotel in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida – about 23 miles southeast of Jacksonville and 25 miles north of St. Augustine – has wowed both romancing couples and young families. Several guests praise the relaxing vibe and the personal attention they received from the staff members, while others rave about the oceanfront rooms, which feature private balconies or patios and marble bathrooms. But don't let other travelers tell you what to think. Consider The Lodge & Club at Ponte Vedra Beach's heated swimming pools and scrumptious cuisine at the three restaurants – then form your own conclusions. One thing to consider, however, is that space here is fairly limited. If you're looking for more room to spread out, consider The Lodge's sister property, the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club. It's located right down the road, also on the beachfront Ponte Vedra Boulevard.

    Epicurean Hotel, Autograph Collection
    Tampa, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 812 reviewsTripAdvisor (812)
    Free WiFi

    If memorable culinary experiences are what you're after, this is the place for you. After checking in and surveying your digs, outfitted with flat-screen TVs, luxury bath products and an in-room pantry, enjoy a meal at Élevage. Helmed by executive chef Chad Johnson, a 2014 James Beard Award semifinalist for Best Chef, the restaurant prides itself on its imaginative twists on fare from around the world. If you're looking for innovative cocktails, this Autograph Collection outpost has you covered there, too: The hotel houses a rooftop bar with handcrafted drinks and tapas. Once you've satisfied your taste buds, indulge in a treatment at Spa Evangeline. Should all the wining and dining make you yearn for a little more activity, you can work up a sweat at the fitness center or rent a bike to explore the South Tampa district. Though some travelers criticized the steep nightly rates here, thanks to the property's Marriott ties, you can offset the price of your stay if you participate in the Marriott Rewards program.

    The Alfond Inn
    Winter Park, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1093 reviewsTripAdvisor (1093)
    Free WiFi

    Owned by the neighboring Rollins College, The Alfond Inn offers modern accommodations about 20 miles northeast of Orlando's major theme parks. The boutique hotel boasts an art collection, a large sunk-in pool and more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space. Recent guests loved the location close to restaurants and attractions in artsy Winter Park, and said the staff was friendly and helpful. Guests also say the clean rooms don't disappoint. The guest rooms are decorated with homey touches like coffee makers and minifridges, and the marble bathrooms feature glass-enclosed showers. The hotel is also a popular choice for weddings and business conferences because of its unique indoor and outdoor venues, like the glass ceiling conservatory overlooking the enclosed courtyard and verdant gardens. Plus, this property is a member of the Preferred LVX hotel family, meaning members of the iPrefer loyalty program can earn or redeem points here.

    Soho Beach House
    Miami Beach, FL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 381 reviewsTripAdvisor (381)
    Free WiFi

    This swanky Miami Beach hotel at the northern end of Collins Avenue offers 49 coveted bedrooms, all of which are uniquely decorated and feature traditional-yet-sleek decor. Recent guests loved the style of the hotel: In addition to the design, past travelers praised the Soho Beach House staff members for their friendly demeanors and dedication to providing personalized service. Meanwhile, guest rooms start at 350 square feet and feature views of the ocean, Biscayne Bay, the Intracoastal Waterway or the Miami skyline. The hotel also offers a rooftop plunge pool, a 100-foot-long pool and a beach (for members only), a spa, a library and a fully equipped fitness center. For food, guests can dine at the rooftop taqueria, Ocho, or grab some Cuban fare at the Club Bar. There is also a movie theater on-site for private screenings. The Soho Beach House is located 12 miles northeast of Miami International Airport.

    The Standard, Miami Beach
    Miami Beach, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2117 reviewsTripAdvisor (2117)
    Free WiFi

    The Standard, Miami Beach certainly looks pretty: Rooms welcome guests with stocked minibars, complimentary Wi-Fi access (covered by the daily $24.99 resort fee) and rain showers. But for a change of scenery, make your way to the hotel spa, which houses a Turkish-style hammam and offers a bevy of yoga and fitness classes. Considering rooms at this hotel can rise higher than $1,000 a night, many say this spa resort is not worth the money. Still, if you do decide to stay here, you'll have access to the hotel's waterfront infinity pool, as well as the organic Mediterranean fare served at the on-site Lido Bayside Grill. If you're looking to imbibe in true Miami Beach fashion, plan on spending an evening at The Lido's bar and lounge; it may not be as lively as South Beach's bars, but the drinks are good. There's also a juice cafe if you're looking for something light by the pool. You'll find The Standard along the skinny Venetian Causeway on Belle Isle, about a mile west of central Miami Beach.

    The Brazilian Court Palm Beach
    Palm Beach, FL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 692 reviewsTripAdvisor (692)
    Free WiFi

    To put it bluntly, The Brazilian Court Palm Beach is gorgeous  from the mahogany furniture in the guest rooms to the plush white lounge chairs around the outdoor pool. Previous visitors describe the accommodations as "beautiful" and "comfortable" thanks to colonial-inspired decor, jetted bathtubs, pillow-top beds and minibars. (If you'd like access to your own private patio or terrace, travelers say you'll need to request a room facing the courtyard.) While you're here, you'll have access to the tables at Café Boulud, which serves decadent plates of innovative French cuisine. And if you need some pampering, head to the on-site Frédéric Fekkai Salon, which boasts a long list of services. The Brazilian Court also caters to four-legged travelers with special pet-friendly amenities. What's more, the hotel is part of The Leading Hotels of the World, meaning Leaders Club members have access to perks here. This luxury hotel is on Australian Avenue in Palm Beach, less than 2 miles from Clematis Street and the Norton Museum of Art.

    Casa Monica Resort & Spa, Autograph Collection
    St. Augustine, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2051 reviewsTripAdvisor (2051)

    The Casa Monica Resort & Spa, Autograph Collection impresses visitors with its Old World charm. Perched on Cordova Street in St. Augustine, Florida, the property offers an intimate setting and intricate design. Take the guest rooms, for instance, some of which boast hardwood furniture and four-poster, wrought iron beds. But the Casa Monica Resort & Spa doesn't forget the needs of contemporary guests: Recent visitors said their rooms were spacious and clean. All accommodations also come outfitted with allures like velvet headboards, Bose sound systems and complimentary Wi-Fi access. While you're staying at this Autograph Collection outpost, you'll also have access to facilities like a pool, a fitness center, a beach club and two restaurants, including Costa Brava, which serves Mediterranean-influenced dishes. Guests delight in Casa Monica Resort & Spa's historical feel, but they also appreciate its convenient location within walking distance of Flagler College and the historic district's shops, restaurants and museums on St. George Street. What's more, Marriott Rewards members can rack up or cash in points at Casa Monica Resort & Spa for additional stay benefits. The only drawback? A $26 daily resort fee.

    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Taking its name from its fashionable location, the Inn on Fifth provides visitors easy access to the restaurants and upscale boutiques located in downtown Naples, Florida. Renovated in 2012, the guest rooms receive compliments from visitors for their modern, stylish decor and amenities. Accommodations are outfitted with separate living areas, complimentary Wi-Fi access, French doors that open to Juliet balconies or terraces and Italian marble bathrooms. The hotel also features 32 Club Level Suites that offer more square footage, along with perks like a private rooftop sundeck, complimentary airport transportation and free breakfast, afternoon snacks and evening cocktails in the lounge. If you're not staying in a Club Level Suite, sit down at one of the property's two on-site restaurants, Ocean Prime and Truluck's Seafood, Steak and Crabhouse (which is popular for its all-you-can-eat stone crab nights). Or, if you're more interested in relaxing, you can book a treatment at the Spa on Fifth or visit the beach located just a mile west of the hotel. While guests were impressed with the facilities and amenities, they cite the friendly and accommodating staff as the prime reason for a return visit. However, a few did caution that housekeeping services could be improved.

    Free WiFi

    This tiny hotel on Fleming Street beckons to travelers who don't have young kids. In fact, you have to be at least 14 years of age to stay at The Marquesa Hotel. A look at the amenities list and restaurant menu items and you'll get a sense of that mature vibe – in other words, don't expect to see any chicken nuggets or hot dogs. Instead, sample Café Marquesa's diver sea scallops or roasted duck breast. The rooms are smaller than what you might expect from a luxury hotel, but they're quiet and dressed in sunny yellows and soft blues, with some of the deluxe rooms featuring hardwood floors. Just be aware that the hotel does not have an elevator, so some guests suggest requesting a room on one of the lower floors (or packing light). You won't need a car while staying at The Marquesa Hotel, since top sites like Mallory Square and the Audubon House & Tropical Gardens are a short walk away.

    The Seagate Hotel & Spa

    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 819 reviewsTripAdvisor (819)

    The charming Seagate Hotel & Spa is situated in Delray Beach, about halfway between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach on Florida's east coast. Recent visitors who stayed here rave about the service and amenities available. The hotel's guests are granted access to The Seagate Beach Club, a swimming pool, water sports equipment rentals and a spa. If you're more of an active type, break a sweat in the fitness center or head to The Seagate Country Club (about 4 miles southwest of the hotel), where you'll find the 18-hole golf course and Har-Tru tennis courts. (The Seagate Hotel offers complimentary transportation to the country club.) If the food at the beach club or country club aren't to your liking, try the on-site Atlantic Grille, which features an array of seafood prepared with bold flavors, along with nightly entertainment. When you're ready to relax in your digs, you'll enjoy the Egyptian cotton linens, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee makers and marble bathrooms found inside.

    Dream South Beach

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2637 reviewsTripAdvisor (2637)
    Free WiFi

    Nestled on the hopping Collins Avenue by South Beach, the Dream South Beach stands out for its quintessentially Miami Beach art deco design and unique ambient lighting found throughout the hotel. Rooms are the swankiest of swanky, featuring chrome and glass decor, cascading chandeliers, minibars and flat-screen TVs. Despite its cool interiors, some guests complained of the small size of the rooms, while others found that the thin walls limited privacy. But what all guests could agree on was how ridiculously delicious Naked Taco is. After you've gotten your fill of classic Mexican cuisine, consider heading to the chic (but small) rooftop infinity pool for some R&R or indulge at the on-site Shala Spa. Recent guests praised the hotel's prime location, noting that the greatest nightlife venues, shops and restaurants are only a few blocks away.
