Grand mid-century icon restored to its original glitz, with a see-and-be-seen nightclub and a dozen dining options
A fixture on oceanfront Collins Avenue for more than six decades, this South Florida landmark oozes over-the-top glamour reminiscent of the area’s Rat Pack heyday. When it opened in 1954, the hotel’s curving, avant-garde design drew plenty of detractors, but, over time, architect Morris Lapidus’s ultramodern masterpiece became emblematic of Miami Beach itself—a destination for Hollywood A-listers from Elvis Presley to Lucille Ball. A two-and-a-half-year, $1 billion renovation and expansion completed in 2008 restored the historic hotel to its original opulence, The 1,504 rooms—ranging from the standard 300-square-foot bayside king to a lavish five-bedroom, 10,000-square-foot Atlantic-view penthouse—now feature sleek decor in soothing neutrals and ocean tones, while on-property attractions include the sprawling Lapis spa, twelve restaurants and lounges including chef-driven hotspots like Scott Conant’s seasonal Italian Scarpetta and StripSteak by Michael Mina, and LIV nightclub, where a new generation of young celebs mingle with the city’s social elite.
In the Area
Situated at mid-beach, you’re just over a mile north of the pedestrian-only Lincoln Road Mall, a palm-shaded hub of shops and outdoor eateries that buzzes with locals and tourists alike. A few blocks further south is the famed Ocean Drive, the epicenter of Miami's renowned Art Deco District. The Miami Design Preservation League, which was instrumental in the district’s historic preservation in the late 1970s, hosts daily 90-minute walking tours of the area's restored hotels, restaurants, and other pastel-hued structures. You won't lack for dining options in South Beach, be it farm-to-table fare at the James Beard-recognized Yardbird Southern Table & Bar or refined tapas at the Philippe Starck-designed Bazaar by José Andrés in the SLS Hotel.
