    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.

    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.

    Dream South Beach
    Miami Beach, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    The Hotel of South Beach
    Miami Beach, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2028 reviewsTripAdvisor (2028)
    Free WiFi

    People who have stayed at The Hotel of South Beach consider it a hidden gem among the staggering number of pricey 4-star properties that make their home in Miami Beach. Those same people say that the staff here is some of the most welcoming and responsive they've ever encountered. Originally built in 1939, The Hotel houses 73 rooms and suites, all of which have been decorated by renowned fashion designer Todd Oldham. Accommodations here boast custom furniture, rain showers, complimentary high-speed internet access and HD flat-screen TVs. For the duration of your stay, you'll have access to fitness classes (on weekends), business center services and a daily breakfast buffet, free of charge. You can also check out the scene at the rooftop pool, which transforms into a lively nightlife spot in the evenings. When you've worked up an appetite, head to the Hotel Restaurant or the Rooftop Pool Bar for casual American fare. Or, venture off-site to one of the many restaurants conveniently located along Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive.

    Cadet Hotel
    Miami Beach, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1028 reviewsTripAdvisor (1028)
    Free WiFi

    True to Miami Beach's art deco flair, the 34-room Cadet Hotel near South Beach features decorative touches from the time period. Built in 1941, the hotel housed United States Air Force Cadets from 1941 to 1949  hence the name. Despite its far-reaching history, rooms offer decidedly modern amenities, such as 600-thread count linens, flat-screen TVs and minifridges. If you're in the mood to relax outside your digs, schedule a treatment at the spa or retreat to one of the hotel's gardens. Thanks to its prime location less than a mile from the Lincoln Road Mall and the shoreline, you don't have to venture far to find food and fun. But if you want to stick close to the hotel, the French Pied à Terre restaurant is located on-site. Most recent visitors enjoyed the charming style of the hotel but concede the rooms are pretty compact. However, the hotel's unbeatable location and friendly staff helped soften travel blows. Keep in mind: The hotel has no parking, so plan accordingly.

    Pelican Hotel
    Miami Beach, FL
    3.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1333 reviewsTripAdvisor (1333)
    Free WiFi

    Describing this Ocean Drive hotel as colorful would be an understatement. In addition to the neon-colored lights that illuminate the Pelican's façade come nightfall, the rooms here boast psychedelic shades of green, yellow, orange and blue. What's more, each accommodation has an equally flashy name, ranging from "Birth of the Bubbles" to "Optique Diabolique" to "Me Tarzan, you Vain" to "Love, Peace and Leafforest." Recent guests love that each room has a unique quality, though they each come with features like recycled oak floors, LCD televisions, iPhone or iPod docking stations and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Previous guests also rave about the fresh seafood served at the in-house RestCafé, which serves dishes like red snapper ceviche, tuna carpaccio and king crab. But according to past visitors, the most impressive aspect of this hotel is its customer service: Guests describe the staff here as friendly and helpful.

    The Tides South Beach
    Miami Beach, FL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1208 reviewsTripAdvisor (1208)
    Free WiFi

    Finding a place to unwind in frenetic Miami Beach is key for many vacationers, which is why so many travelers praise The Tides South Beach, located on Ocean Drive by South Beach. This property has a spa-like ambiance that makes it easy for its guests to relax in luxury. Decorated in a neutral color palette and outfitted with modern decor, The Tides South Beach also provides an iPod docking station, a flat-screen TV with a DVD player, a walk-in closet and a Nespresso coffee machine in every room. Extra touches like free beach setup and Wi-Fi access are covered by the property's daily resort fee. What's more, the friendly, accommodating staff receive frequent praise from travelers. However, some visitors warn that – even though the hotel itself doesn't partake in the area's rowdiness – noise from the street and nearby nightlife venues can often disturb a sound sleep. If you need to catch up on some R&R, spend your afternoon lounging by the pool, where attendants will serve you drinks and ensure your comfort. And at the end of the day, grab a bite to eat at The Tides Restaurant and Terrace.

    Hotel Croydon
    Miami Beach, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2329 reviewsTripAdvisor (2329)
    Free WiFi

    Affordability, location and attentive customer service are the three aspects travelers love most about Hotel Croydon. Located on Collins Avenue between the beach and the Intracoastal Waterway, Hotel Croydon is removed from the hustle and bustle of South Beach without being too far from the action. Reviewers said the rooms were on the small side, but they are well-equipped with C.O. Bigelow toiletries, iHome docking stations, cooling gel memory foam mattresses and flat-screen TVs. When you're not relaxing in your digs, head up to the rooftop sundeck (where free yoga classes are held every Saturday morning) or lounge by the outdoor pool. For even more relaxation, book a treatment at the on-site Croydon Rose spa. Though you're within reach of plenty of Miami Beach's top eateries, recent guests said you should consider sticking around the hotel for a meal at The Tavern. Not only did reviewers compliment the food and stellar service, but they also recommended the affordable daily happy hour, which runs from 3 to 6 p.m. and from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. The only gripe among recent visitors? The daily $20 resort fee.

    Kimpton Angler's Hotel
    Miami Beach, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2004 reviewsTripAdvisor (2004)
    Free WiFi

    For many recent guests, the Kimpton Angler's Hotel proved to be an excellent home base for a Miami Beach getaway. Guests say this Kimpton property excels at ambience and customer service, plus it offers a weighty amenities list. You can expect bamboo wood floors, white marble bathrooms, Keurig coffee makers and plasma televisions in each of the property's 45 rooms and suites. Some of the spacious accommodations even come with private rooftop terraces (and Jacuzzis). Visitors also praise the on-site 660 Angler's restaurant, which lodgers say is a must for brunch (perhaps it's the bottomless mimosas?). And after you've imbibed a glass or two, spend your day laying out by the pool or riding one of the hotel's free bikes around town. Take note that this 4-star property is perched on Washington Avenue, not Collins, so you'll miss out on the nonstop party vibe that many associate with Miami Beach hotels. But members of the Kimpton Karma loyalty program can trade in their points for perks like free nights, and even basic members get complimentary Wi-Fi access.

    The Redbury South Beach
    Miami Beach, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1522 reviewsTripAdvisor (1522)
    Free WiFi

    Guests of The Redbury South Beach praise this boutique hotel for its central Miami Beach location and proximity to South Beach. The property's 69 rooms and suites incorporate an art deco theme and include amenities like rain showers, separate soaking tubs and Ciel Spa toiletries. Travelers especially love the record player and vinyl records that come standard in each guest room. When you're ready to venture outside of your accommodations, check out the hotel's 12,000-square-foot rooftop pool and deck, the Mediterranean-inspired Cleo restaurant or IGK Salon. Although there is no spa or fitness center available on-site, you'll have access to fitness facilities at The Redbury's nearby sister property, SLS South Beach. Travelers should note that the hotel charges a $25 daily resort fee, which covers the use of beach loungers, Wi-Fi and access to SLS Hotel South Beach's fitness center.

    Leslie Hotel
    Miami Beach, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 711 reviewsTripAdvisor (711)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    Recent visitors raved about the location, service and relaxing ambiance of the Leslie Hotel. Located on Ocean Drive, across the street from the beach, this canary yellow, 35-room boutique property offers prime access to South Beach's vibrant nightlife and dining scene. But according to past guests, you don't have to go far for either: The on-site Cala Cafe was a hit with past guests for its delicious menu and attentive service, while the rooftop pool and terrace offer a panoramic vantage point for taking in the Miami Beach scene. If you do want to check out the beach, you can borrow beach towels and chairs from the hotel. Reviewers were also impressed with the rooms, which they described as spacious and stylish (rooms average around 350 square feet, while the hotel's two suites span 550 square feet). In addition to their modern design, accommodations are equipped with flat-screen TVs, minifridges and, in the suites, separate showers and bathtubs. You'll find that the hotel's eye for style extends beyond the rooms; the hotel features art deco aesthetics throughout the entire property, an homage to the building's original construction in 1937. Another aspect of the Leslie Hotel that sets it apart from its Ocean Drive neighbors: It boasts its own game room, ideal for those traveling with kids. But if you plan on bringing a car, be prepared to pay more than $36 per day for valet parking.

    Casa Faena

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 465 reviewsTripAdvisor (465)
    Free WiFi

    Located about 2 miles north of South Beach and only a block from the shoreline, Casa Faena has a Mediterranean revival style that dates back to 1928. Now fully restored, recent guests said the colorful, charming Spanish colonial-style is a major draw to the hotel. The property features curated spaces, including a rooftop terrace, an atrium with art installations and a library suited for private dining. The artisan theme extends into the guest rooms, where unique tufted headboards or custom carved beds are offered alongside terracotta floors, antique carpets and bathrooms with soaking tubs. But modern amenities aren't forgotten  the room is also equipped with flat-screen TVs and free internet access (which is covered by the daily resort fee). When it's time to dine, visit the American- and Argentine-inspired Cafe Faena restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner in a bistro-style setting. While recent guests praised the atmosphere and design of the hotel, they were also impressed with the staff, who were described as "courteous" and "professional."

    The Gale South Beach honors its history by featuring glamorous decor from the 1940s and preserving its vibrant art deco accents. But this boutique hotel embraces the present with chic room furnishings and modern amenities like marble bathrooms, rainfall showers, 55-inch LED TVs and iHome docking stations featured in all of the accommodations. When you're ready for some sun, check out the rooftop pool area  it boasts 5,000 square feet of space and plenty of lounge chairs. If you'd rather hit the beach, you'll have complimentary access to a private beach club that provides amenities like beach chairs, towels and umbrellas. Once you work up an appetite, whet your palate at Dolce Italian with savory dishes like pizza and hearty pastas. Those who are looking for a light bite and an endless choice of cocktails can try The Regent Cocktail Club. Meanwhile, the on-site Rec Room offers guests a place to party with rotating DJs and a bevy of libations. Guests do note that music from the club can find its way into the rooms, so consider booking a room on a higher floor to get the best night's sleep.
