Soho Beach House Miami

Although Miami’s skyline (and some of its residents) may seem to be stuck in time, the hotel scene has had an injection of something that has made it relevant, young and fresh again (and it’s not botox). The fact that LE Miami, the first travel fair to address the shift in luxury travel, was hosted there this year is a testament to its newfound greatness. Spoiled for choice you can go retro, eco or loco, so take your pick:

Miami Beach EDITION

As soon as you pass the front door, you’ll recognise the musky Le Labo scent common to all Editon Hotels. Potted palms cluster around the lobby’s gold columns, setting a tone of relaxed opulence with a slight sense of satirical humour. The restaurant, aptly named the Matador Room, is filled with pictures of Spanish bullfighters (no animals were harmed in the making) and bronze pineapple cocktail glasses. Fun is the name of the game at The Edition, with indoor and outdoor pools, a bowling alley and an ice skating rink. Décor in the rooms is minimal and calming – opt for an ocean view, if only to ogle at the duplex penthouse suite.
Rooms from £192 per night

Thompson Miami

This beachfront hotel gives you exactly what you’d want from a hotel on South Beach: head-to-toe old-school glamour. Candy-coloured striped loungers and cabanas surround the two pools and the interiors are all dark polished wood, punctuated by burnt sienna and palm green details. Have dinner under the bougainvilleas at Seagrape, headed by award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein, followed by a hemingway royal – rum, fruit juice and prosecco – at the bar. Refresh yourself the next day with a session at their open-air spa.
Rooms from £145 per night

Delano

An unmissable South Beach establishment and an Ian Schrager original, the Delano will always be one of the best hotels in South Beach. Whether it’s the all-white rooms or the moody high-ceilinged lobby filled with eclectic furniture, there’s something about the place that gives you a buzz the moment you walk in. The beautiful crowd surrounding the pool seem to sustain themselves on frozen grapes and rosé alone during the day, immediately switching to mojitos and pina coladas as soon as the clock turns five. If in doubt, ask concierge Pedro Alvarez – he always knows what to do.
Rooms from £151 per night

The Standard Spa, Miami Beach

A Miami staple, The Standard Spa, Miami Beach still proves to be one of the greatest hotels on South Beach. Located just a couple of blocks away from Collins Avenue, the laid-back atmosphere can trick guests into feeling they are miles away from the city – this retro Acapulco-like hotel has hanging chairs hidden between a variety of flora, and a colourful wooden deck overlooking Miami bay. Along with the beach chic vibe and impeccable service, The Standard is also the perfect place for an afternoon cocktail with friends or to indulge in one of the best brunches in town.
Rooms from £136 per night

Soho Beach House

One of Soho House’s most desirable locations, Soho Beach House is a top Miami hotel with service and amenities so excellent they make leaving the property feel unnecessary. The hotel offers hidden extras, like a secret tiki bar behind the luxurious pool area or mojitos at the beach bar where you can play paddle and backgammon with friends. Whether you’re lounging in your room, receiving a massage at the Cowshed Spa or enjoying a drink at the restaurant, Soho Beach House offers one of the top hospitality experiences in Miami, attracting young professionals from all industries and creating a relaxed but elegant environment.
Rooms from £176 per night

The Raleigh Hotel

The iconic Raleigh encapsulates all that is Miami. The famous poolside bar, white bungalows and rooms overlooking the South Beach coast are iconic reminders of why this is one of Miami’s most historic institutions. Enjoy top service, great daytime amenities and a lively night scene at your fingertips.
Rooms from £103 per night

The Freehand Hostel

New to Miami’s hospitality scene, The Freehand Hostel has somehow already made itself invaluable to the city’s make-up. This boutique shabby chic hostel is a perfect home away from home offering you poolside cocktails, a fresh juice bar, a great restaurant lit with market lights and one of Miami’s most beloved bars, The Broken Shaker. Attracting a young artistic crowd, The Freehand Hostel curates a homey yet vibrant vibe at the heart of Miami Beach just minutes away from some of the city’s most desirable destinations.
Rooms from £16 per night

W South Beach Hotel

In the heart of South Beach, the W Hotel offers both a relaxing stay with world-class service and a vibrant atmosphere. This hotel a cutting-edge oasis in the city that comes with a 24/7 ‘whatever, whenever’ policy, rooftop tennis and a Bliss Spa. The home of Mr. Chow Miami, the W South Beach is also a great place to have dinner before heading out into the centre of buzzing Miami.
Rooms from £256 per night

1 Hotel South Beach

The enormous new addition to South Beach provides a marked contrast to its hedonistic surroundings. A true feat of eco-excellence, the hotel, which features an 11,000-plant living wall, stands as proud evidence that there is demand for sustainable travel, even in Miami. 1 Hotel’s goal to “bring the outside in” is evident from their sustainable use of natural resources – even the hangers are made out of recycled wood. They also adopt a no-paper policy – everything from the temperature of your room is controlled through a centralised app. But don’t worry, the 1 Hotel is anything from basic, there are four swimming pools, multiple gourmet restaurants to choose from as well as a wealth of other activities and services. Oh, and the bedrooms are huge.
Rooms from £419 per night
