A streamlined art deco landmark built in 1941, this South Beach hotel is on lively Collins Avenue, with its many shops and nightclubs.
Rooms blending a classic beach style and contemporary touches offer stereos, high-thread-count sheets and WiFi. Several room and suite types are available, some with garden terraces and whirlpool tubs, or balconies with ocean views.
There’s private beach access and a palm-lined pool made famous by Esther Williams. A restaurant serves contemporary American cuisine in a dining room or on a pool deck, and a martini bar mixes handcrafted cocktails. A daily resort fee covers WiFi and 2 beach chairs per day.
