Miami is known as a travel hotspot since its beginnings, with its vibrant nightlife, a hub for art and design, and luxurious hotels and restaurants all sitting next to beautiful oceans with perfect year long summer weather. But in the last few years, our hotel scene has taken quite a turn when it comes to design and aesthetics. Art Deco will always be the quintessential Miami style, but these 5 hotels are different from our classics (The Fontainebleau, The Raleigh, and more). Check out my favorite stylish Miami Hotels below.
The only hotel on this list that’s not on Miami Beach, East Hotel is a new luxury hotel sitting next to the billion dollar mixed-use project, Brickell City Center. Located in Miami’s Financial District, this hotel is perfect for business travelers but also stylish enough to draw hip locals. Sugar, EAST Miami’s rooftop cocktail bar in Brickell, made its return to the Condé Nast Traveler’s 2017 list of “The 10 Best Rooftop Bar’s in the U.S.”
Formerly, The Gansevoort Hotel, 1 Hotel was purchased and redesigned using recycled and repurposed woods, preserved moss, petrified branches, and driftwood lighting. It’s totally eco-sustainable and gives you a complete feeling of zen and tranquility. Just take a walk inside, you’ll see what I mean. Don’t forget to stroll up to that rooftop pool, it’s unreal.
The amazing collaboration with Ian Schrager (of Studio 54 and Morgans Hotel Group fame) and Marriott International has created the incredibly chic, Edition Hotel. Interiors give off a 1950’s tropical Miami Beach glamour vibe – white, sleek, and covered in exotic flora. The Matador room, a Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant, is impeccably designed, as well as their nightlife hotspot, The Basement featuring a colorful bowling alley and ice skating rink.
It’s no wonder this hotel is so visually stunning, Baz Luhrmann, Catherine Martin and Studio Job were all involved in Faena’s concept and design. Over the top murals, sculptures, chandeliers and more, this hotel is an experience as much as it is an incredible place to stay.
The Setai, Miami Beach is a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star luxury hotel. Asian-inspired and completely different from that typical Miami Beach style, the Setai uses dark and neutral colors to give a more sensual and soothing and ultra relaxing vibe.
