Built in 1937 by “Dean of Deco” Lawrence Murray Dixon, the Hotel Victor has reopened after an $8 million 2013 makeover. The effortless, understated furnishings of the lobby – all nubby linens, midcentury modern lines and muted palettes – now contrasts elegantly with Murray Dixon’s architectural details like glam crystal and brass chandeliers, geometric inlaid floors and a massive flamingo mural. A generous terrace, filled with umbrella tables, leads to both the restaurant and curvaceous pool.
Bed & Bath
The rooms are prettier and more European than the exterior of the hotel indicates, with bleached wood plank floors, Scandinavian-inspired furniture, creamy nautical fabrics and potted orchids. Views of the ocean are captivating, highlighted by plenty of glass. Bathrooms, with clear walls separating the shower and toilet/bidet, are installed separately from the long sinks and Infiniti tubs, which are bedroom centerpieces.
Sugar Factory American Brasserie is the main dining option, with fresh and tasty fare. Guests can also head to Sushi Couture, which serves high-quality fish imported daily from Japan. The gym is better equipped with machines, both weight and cardio, than many of the neighboring hotels.
In the Area
This is the famed Art Deco District; don’t leave without taking a walking or bicycle, self-guided tour to see the incredibly restored, historic properties. While Ocean Drive itself can be touristy and mediocre food-wise – with the exception of Prime 112, De Rodriguez Cuba and BLT Steak – it also offers some wicked fun, especially at the neighboring Palace South Beach, renowned for its colorful drag queen shows. Parallel streets Collins and Washington avenues feature world-class dining and nightclub options, ranging from The Bazaar by José Andrés in the SLS Hotel to Mansion Nightclub. Perpendicular to the beach, walking mall Lincoln Road is great for people-watching and café-hopping.
How to Get There
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Victor hotel . Hotel is in a brilliant location on south beach .I have to mention Ray at the front desk who went above and beyond to make our stay most enjoyable and was great fun . Rooms very clean and spacious and very comfortable pool area . Would definitely recommend ????
My wife and I visited this amazing hotel in September from England for our honeymoon! The first night we were given an awesome room but it was quite noisy as it was next to the strip so when we asked to be moved the very helpful staff moved us to a much better room with no hassle!
The hotel is in an amazing area really close to the amazing South Beach & all the bars. The hotel has a really good pool. The local bars do charge an extortionate amount for drinks (I’ve been to many different parts of America and never paid $38 for 2 drinks before) this isn’t any fault of the hotel but recommend heading away from the main strip if you don’t want to get ripped off, the Harbour area was only 10 minutes on a bus or taxi & has a Hard Rock, Chillis and Bubba Gump Shrimp!
The staff were all brilliant at this hotel anything I asked they were so helpful & are definitely an asset to this hotel! They even organised me a taxi to the Miami Dolphins stadium while I was dressed head to toe in New England Patriots attire!
I will definitely stay here again next time I’m in Miami! Thanks for helping to make sure my wife & I had a great honeymoon!
Awesome staff. We were on our 25th Anniversary and they offered an upgrade. Room was amazing. Massive bathroom. Great bed, balcony with a view of the beach and pool. Couldn't ask for more. I wish we could have stayed another night.
