Overview

A vintage-inspired 1930s retreat near the heart of South Beach, with beach towels and loaner bikes

The Lowdown

Deco gets a swanky update at Hotel Astor. Within the lobby and library of this property’s 1936 home, you’ll find a glamorous meeting of traditional and modern elements. There are 1930s lighting fixtures and tiling, rattan furniture, and studies of butterflies that recall the Victorian era, right beside minimalist shelving units and mid-century accent chairs. The inspiration is a fictional family of free-spirited Miami Beach socialites called the Astors (no relation to the New Yorkers); the vintage-inspired Astor Social Club is their fabulous imagined gathering place, where you can sip exquisite cocktails while admiring the cozy furniture and quirky curios.
 
Keep with the old-meets-new theme as you step out the front door and cross to neighboring Collins Avenue, one of the most famous thoroughfares in the nation. Here, you’ll find dozens more Art Deco hotels, in the famous historic district, plus a hip 21st-century scene: cutting-edge restaurants, buzzy dance clubs, new sushi joints and shops with the latest in bikini styles. And if you want something that would appeal to denizens of the past and present in equal measure, head a few more blocks – it’s only this much farther to the powder-soft sands of Miami Beach’s namesake. Be sure to bring your hotel beach bag.

Rooms

 The Hotel Astor accommodations number 42 and boast elegant appointments, such as plush Sealy beds, dressed in high-end linens. Perks include bottled water and bath amenities, as well as a beach bag, to tote to the nearby Atlantic sands. 

Location

The American Riviera. An Art Deco playground. Miami Beach has been called many things, but one thing’s for sure – there’s no other place like it. This hotel’s location puts you at the heart of some of the world’s best shopping, nightlife, architecture, beaches, restaurants and history.If the people-watching doesn’t take up your day, there’s plenty more to do. Stroll Lincoln Road’s iconic walk, vacation in Spanish style on Española Way, soak up the sun on South Beach’s famous white-sand coast, dine at a sidewalk café, or hit a bar in Miami’s legendary club scene. However you spend your stay, we promise you won’t want to leave.

My friend and I came to Miami July 2018 and stayed at Hotel Astor. The room was beautiful and had a very nice pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. Enjoyed. Will more than likely stay again upon next visit to Miami.

Excellent art deco hotel with amazing customer service

This hotel was by far the best hotel in which my girlfriend and I stayed during our trip to Miami. Rooms are clean, the interior isbeautiful and the beach as well as Ocean Drive is within walking distance. In particular, the staff was absolutely outstanding.

Parking in Miami Beach can be difficult, Tousha however was really helpful in finding a good parking spot for our rental car. When I had a special request, the staff was literally running through the hotel to make it happen. Once again, thank you so much, Tousha, Laura and Christel, I really appreciate it (and so did my girlfriend!)

Would strongly recommend this hotel to everyone who is travelling to Miami Beach.

Boutique hotel with art deco flair in a great location!

I've been coming to this hotel for five straight years! Here are the reasons why?

1) Location. Location. Location. It's two blocks from Ocean Drive and the Clevelander. If you keep going east, you'll hit the beach. There's a CVS directly across the street for any significant needs. If you're renting a car, there is a small parking lot across the street. Or three blocks south on 7th. You're pretty much in the heart of South Beach.

2) Customer service. Very accommodating over the years. This time around Samantha, Latousha and Laura were all very courteous, professional, considerate and patient to all of my needs during my stay.

3) The rooms. They have all the amenities you need. From iron/ironing board to hair dryer, soap, lotion, etc. Beds are comfortable. Linens are clean and soft. Rooms are small, but cozy. Remember, this is a boutique hotel. If you're looking for something grand, stay at the Fountainebleau or the Loews. If there is one drawback, it's that the rooms need a little updating (fresher/cleaner carpet, actual shower curtain. It has a half glass covering the tub. Old fixtures in the tub & sink.)

Besides that, I really dig the place. And it also has a small pool, which wasn't built when I first visited back in 2014. Just in case, you don't want to walk to the beach because it's too hot. Plus, there's a bar adjacent from the front desk.

If you're staying one night, or a long weekend, this is the place to be. I always love to visit Miami Beach. When I do, I stay at the Hotel Astor.

Great stay!

So first of all this hotel is in need of some MAJOR upgrades. Every picture on the internet is a LIE! These rooms are run down. Ice buckets, no ice machine, showers without shower doors (so you literally get water EVERYWHERE), only a small mini fridge (no microwave), and don’t get me started on “continental breakfast.”

It’s not that the hotel is bad, but they are definitely false advertising. How you charge $650 for 3 nights, plus $200 incidental fee and your hotel look like a Motel 6???!!! Like nah!! If I would have known what this hotel looked like before hand I would HAVE NEVER booked here.

There is NO PARKING. It’s $35 a day if you choose to do their parking or $20 a day if you park 3 blocks up at the 13th Street parking garage. I am just so unimpressed with this whole area.

The only plus is that we are close to the beach and other fun places that we like. Oh and the bed was pretty amazing! Other than that, I’d never stay here again. Over priced, run down and just not worth it.
