Billed as a lifestyle hotel, it houses a series of dining venues, including a coffee shop, an Asian-themed rooftop bar and a fifth-floor restaurant called Quinto La Huella, the first international outpost of Uruguay’s renowned La Huella seaside grill.”

4.4 Biltmore Hotel Miami

Biltmore Hotel, Miami

Lonely Planet

“Though the Biltmore’s standard rooms can be small, a stay here is a chance to sleep in one of the great laps of US luxury. The grounds are so palatial it would take a solid week to explore everything the Biltmore has to offer.”

4.0 Fontainebleau Miami

Resort Fontainebleau, Miami


“A billion-dollar renovation completed in 2008 added more than a dozen restaurants, bars and lounges to the massive Fontainebleau resort, where celebrities and year-round Spring Breakers sip drinks poolside before hitting the two in-house nightclubs, Arkadia and LIV.”

4.5 Soho Beach House Miami

Soho Beach House, Miami


“A 50-room hotel tower annexed to the grounds of a members-only club, Soho Beach House offers a quiet, intimate take on the best of Miami experience. With the exception of the courtyard restaurant Cecconi’s, on-site amenities here are off-limits to the general public.”

4.4 Lord Balfour Hotel Miami

Room Mate Lord Balfour Hotel, Miami

New York Times

“Despite the stylish décor and classy location, the Lord Balfour is low on stuffiness. Service is friendly. Glitz is minimal. Clientele was composed mainly of what looked to be upper-middle-class families and couples rather than the jet-setters who frequent the five-star palaces farther up South Beach. If you don’t demand pomp or pampering, Lord Balfour is a charming host.”
