A renovation in 2014 breathed new life into this 1930s-era Art Deco jewel in the South Beach historic district, known in its past life as the Primrose Hotel and The Hotel Nash. The 57 whitewashed guest rooms feature modern touches like cube-shaped hollow end tables; curvy, low-backed chairs; and round lampshades in glittering gold. Little luxuries include walk-in rain showers, marble-and-tile bathrooms, and blackout drapes that you’ll appreciate after partying till the sun starts to lighten the Atlantic skies. Though just a block from the ocean, you might not venture beyond the intimate courtyard, where lush vegetation surrounds three stone-lined spa pools. Need some shade? Lounge al fresco on the hotel’s airy front patio for world-class people watching, South Beach-style.
In the Area
You’re in the heart of the Art Deco district, within walking distance of the pedestrian-only Lincoln Road Mall, a hub for shopping and dining hotspots. Try Quattro Gastronomia Italiana for rustic northern Italian-focused cuisine, Nexxt Cafe for diner-style fare in a buzy outdoor space, or target=”_blank”>Shake Shack for indulgent burgers and custards from the popular NYC transplant. By night, the South Beach scene beckons at celeb-frequented nightclubs like STORY and SET. For a different sort of evening out, try the nearby Miami City Ballet or New World Symphony.
How to Get There
I have stayed at the Stiles on many occasions, usually for a week at a time. Although the ownership has changed several times over recent years the front desk continues to provide fantastic service to guests. Michelle goes above and beyond every time and John is a mine of helpful information about the Miami Beach area.
I always like to stay in the Terrace rooms which are huge and have awesome balconies. Well worth the extra cost. Rooms are clean and comfortable, although they would benefit from the addition of a fridge. The lobby has complimentary coffee, tea and muffins for guests. The Stiles is perfectly located to enjoy all that Miami Beach has to offer and is reasonably priced. I see no reason to look elsewhere.
We had a great time at the Stiles and would like to thank Michelle especially for her hospitality and kindness, she is always available and ready to make your stay enjoyable. The hotel is clean with large rooms and the location is great. Expect some air cond noise in some of the rooms but we prefer without.
All the staff and specially Michelle were kind and proffessional. Room spacious and clean. Lack of fridge in the room. great shower. 3 pools with needed shade and open till 11:00 PM.- Coffee, tea and water always available at the lobby and very close to the beach. Excellent location.- Would love to return
Great hotel and location, near ocean drive and Lincoln road mall center. 2 blocks from south beach. Great price. No meals, but you have coffee, muffins and water available 24 hours. Right next to grocery stores and bars.
Stayed Jan 2nd last year prior to a cruise. Hotel reception was calm, courteous, efficient, well-run. Room was comfortable and spacious. Location was excellent, just one block in from Ocean Drive and the Strip. Would definitely stay here again pre or post cruise.
