Overview

Guests rave about hotel's historical charm
Although massage services are available, there is no on-site spa

The National Hotel has an early 20th century charm that recent guests love: The property is reminiscent of the 1930s and '40s with art deco architecture and period design elements. And the property's location is tough to top: This hotel sits along Miami Beach's illustrious Collins Avenue within spitting distance of many of the area's most exciting activities. Guest rooms are comfortable with entertainment console centers, walk-in closets and flat-screen TVs; however, some travelers lament a lack of in-suite creature comforts – particularly coffee makers. The room size and the views offered also vary greatly, so keep in mind that the Cabana Wing rooms tend to be larger but the Tower rooms will give you a view of the ocean. While staying here, Miami Beach visitors have access to the hotel's massage services and two pools, as well as the French cuisine served up at Tamara's Bistro. Pool service is also available from the Aqua Club.

Fully renovated in 2014, the National Hotel maintains its distinct art deco heritage (the chocolate- and ebony-hued pieces in the lobby date back to the 1930s, and the baby grand piano headlines the throwback Blues Bar) while also keeping up with SoBe's glossy newcomers. Guest rooms are found within the historic art deco tower and larger suites in the poolside cabana wing.

A moderately priced designer hotel on posh upper Collins Avenue, the National boasts one of the largest, sleekest pools in Miami. Small rooms, though, and relaxed, haphazard service doesn't contend with its super-chic neighbors, the Delano and Sagamore hotels, but a 2013 revamp to exterior and common spaces did help.

Located in the Art Deco District, the historic National Hotel provides a quiet retreat from the party atmosphere of Collins Avenue. The beachfront property retains much of its 1930's design, from the pale-yellow stucco facade to the lobby's geometric wall sconces and vintage barrel chairs.
