YVE Hotel Miami
What We Love
- Killer views of yachts and cruise ships in Biscayne Bay — and matching stateroom-inspired design
- “Monscierge” screens in the lobby let you check weather, find restaurants, even print boarding passes
- Walking distance to theaters, concerts and sports arenas
- A $2 Metromover ride from the airport
- Free WiFi throughout — and loaner iPads you can sign out from the front desk
What To Know
- The hotel requires a $50 daily deposit, which will be refunded or credited toward incidental charges at checkout
- Views of water everywhere — but no pool to swim in; a 15-minute cab ride from the beach
- The two elevators can cause a traffic jam at peak checkout times
- The city center locale will disappoint those imagining the resort strip of Miami Beach
- A $13.56 per night amenity fee will be collected at the hotel (includes WiFi, one signature YVE alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage per person served daily in the lobby from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and more)

It’s a mod, mod, mod, mod world. A just-completed gut renovation transformed an outdated hotel high-rise into a sleek contemporary tower with info-packed computer screens on the wall, oceans of blue carpeting and crisp white walls inside, and an exterior that’s spotlit in different hues each night — such as red when the Miami Heat is playing at American Airlines Arena, across the street.
Bed and Bath
The Biscayne Bay and its passing boats inspired the room decors. The interiors call to mind the staterooms of the cruise ships visible from some rooms, with a cushy white bed floating on a thick, wave-patterned carpet opposite a flat-screen TV. The all-white bathrooms are small but ship-shape, and there are thoughtful touches throughout, from Aveda products in the shower to the blue-painted closet interior, which subtly echoes the nautical theme.
It’s right off the lobby, but Jeffrey Chodorow’s Biscayne Tavern is more than just a hotel restaurant. Its inviting wooden bar, craft beer menu, unpretentious vibe and urban comfort food (think spicy shrimp and grits) make it a crowd-pleaser among locals as well as guests. It’s especially crowded before and after Heat games, at the arena across the street — and pretty packed during games, too, thanks to the big-screen TVs on the back wall.
In the Area
Downtown is a business hub (it has the country’s largest concentration of international banks), but if you’re here for play, not work, you can walk to the Adrienne Arsht Center for traveling Broadway shows, dance performances, opera and concerts; American Airlines Arena for sporting events; and Bayfront Park for carousel rides, open-air concerts and yoga by the bay. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head around the block for Miami’s best Peruvian fare at Ceviche 105 or Pollos y Jarras. The hipster-packed restaurants and open-air graffiti galleries of Wynwood and the luxury shops of the Design District are a few minutes away in a cab, and the sandy shores of Miami Beach are just over the causeway — about a 10-minute drive.
How to Get There
When I arrived in Miami, I had booked a misleading Airbnb room in a place that was unsafe and unsanitary. I was desperate to leave and had to book a hotel room last minute. Yve hotel turned my trip around. It is in a very nice location with many things to do nearby. The service is excellent and the rooms are top notch. If I go back to Miami, I'll definitely stay with them again.
The hotel location is great if you plan on going on a cruise and a lot of places are walking distance from it, it's true the rooms might be small but are super clean, besides while on vacation I rarely spend time on the room, parking is a bit off since they are working on the street next to it but out if that experience here was amazing, I went to the bar 2 or 3 times at night and I was taken care of by Inti Cruz, amazing guy with a great personality, he made my stay even more outstanding and had me laughing every night, will definitely be back and will recommend to my friends
What a Great Hotel === I was Impressed with the Entire Staff -- I was There for a Week for and Stayed in a Suite on the upper floors -- Great View -- everyone was Extremely Nice -- Keep in Mind that you are in the City of Miami and You have a City tax on parking -- I was Quoted a Total rate that included all and to my Surprise I received a Small refund from the total I was Given -- I will Be bringing my Family Here for Vacation.
Thank You YVE Hotel Staff and valet Team
I had a good time sleeping in the hotel and when I had to wait 6 hours for my ride home I was able to storage my bags until the ride was ready so me and my friends took a tour around the city of Miami Beach for a few hours, shop a little bit got something to eat and had back to the hotel got the luggage
Excellent service and room quality.
Perfect location. It was close to everything and easy to go anywhere. The night lighting was beautiful and add an excellent touch to the building. The breakfast was very good
