Guests rave about property's prime location by South Beach
Standard rooms are a bit small, offering 220 to 310 square feet
The Shelborne is retro heaven for those looking for a quintessential Miami Beach lodging experience, in case the hotel's location right on South Beach isn't enough. Situated in the city's Art Deco District, the Shelborne South Beach was built in the '40s and features vintage decor throughout, while still making room for modern amenities. The Shelborne's 200 rooms feature GUYandGIRL toiletries, 300-thread-count linens and complimentary Wi-Fi access, with decor and furnishings inspired by 1950s automobiles. Along with the impressive (albeit small) interiors, guests loved the lively atmosphere of the property (especially the chic Drawing Room restaurant) and the staff, with some guests saying it was the best service they've ever experienced at a hotel. The pool is also a stunner, featuring lounge chairs, cabanas, a pool bar and an old-fashioned diving board (which is just for show) surrounded almost entirely by palm trees. But guests say the hotel's location (just steps from the beach) is its best asset. After you've had some fun in the sun and sand, refuel at one of (or all) three on-site eateries. Business travelers take note: the Miami Beach Convention Center is two blocks away.

Critic Reviews


After a 2014 renovation combined its Art Deco roots with modern luxury, the Shelborne South Beach became a stylish, upscale pick on Collins Ave in South Beach. The guest rooms have comfortable beds, digital music players, and stocked minibars, and some come with balconies.



All 200 rooms were done up in geometric rugs and curvy leather headboards. The design pays homage to 1940s and 1950s glamour (as do the uniforms, by Hollywood costume designer Carol Ramsey).



It really has everything one covets in a South Beach property: stylish yet functional rooms that channel 1950s glamour; the beach's most oversized poolside cabanas (which also happen to be air-conditioned); a slick pool scene; a private beach club; ... and a location that offers direct access to downy sands, art deco, and superlative shopping.



An iconic property has rolled out the red carpet to welcome guests to their repositioned landmark hotel. Most rooms offer a beach or city view but the corner rooms offer views of both.
