Boutique Art Deco hotel in the heart of Miami’s South Beach nightlife scene

The Lowdown

Just steps from the sand and surrounded by South Beach’s hottest nightlife, this 99-room Art Deco–era property has a modern, artistic look. Guest rooms are a minimum of 350 square feet and feature iPod dock stations, Keurig coffeemakers, plush bathrobes, flat-screen televisions, and rainfall showers. The trendy décor blends colorful patterns with futuristic furniture. For relaxation, a rooftop terrace offers shaded lounge chairs and views of the bustling scene, and the glassed-walled plunge pool offers another spot to unwind. Towels are provided to guests lounging at the beach, and there’s live music in the evening at the hotel’s seafood restaurant and bar.

In the Area

Just next door to the property is the iconic Mangos Tropical Café, a sizzling restaurant with nightly shows that feature belly dancers, conga and samba. Free bicycles are included in the resort fee, and a short ride will take you to Nikki Beach, a landmark beach club and cabana bar that’s perfect for Sunday brunch followed by lounging in the sun. Miami also has an underwater playground, so scuba divers can explore numerous coral reefs, shipwrecks and the unique — but slightly creepy — Neptune Memorial Reef (an underwater cemetery). There’s also sailing, kayaking, hang-gliding, windsurfing, and an array of other water sports. For a fabulous dinner and creative cocktails, head to the Bazaar by José Andrés for unforgettable tapas and indoor/outdoor dining.

Mimi Takes Over Miam

This Hotel was Amazing Location was absolutely awesome we were in the best spot PERIODT
I had a group of thirteen but four of us arrived on that Thursday early morning flight we got to the hotel and of course our rooms wasn’t ready and check-in wasn’t until 4pm so wtbs we made the best of our time while we waited on our rooms to get ready-we rode the bycicles which is a service fee for all the amenities-beach towels the pool etc etc for $18 per day but anyways it was all worth it-then we discovered that south beach also offer these Mini rides called Freebie/ you download the and request a ride of how many is in your group if you have more than 5 you can request more than one for pick up and they will take you where ever on south beach (ONLY)playing your favorite music as your request total beats out Uber,Lyft,or a taxi-. We tipped our driver each bc they do such a great job-so as we arrived back to the hotel after exploring the city the young asked us would we like to be in the building next door bc they didn’t have anymore king beds with the ocean view on the lobby side which is all connected so we said yes our rooms number was 515&516 so we get our keys go to our rooms and lord behold it was a penthouse we had the whole entire 5th floor to ourselves which is the only two rooms on the floor it was nice with a perfect view and let me note I was there for my Birthday so hey this just had added more to my extra ness this place were you would wanna be rooftop over looking the city and when I say by the time all of group arrived we was turnt tf up x’s 10 I will most definitely book here again and you should also if your looking for a great location that’s surrounded by everything and just steps away from the beach????


My business and vacation trip was perfect in this hotel. Excellent location, cool place for diner, nice staff, clean room and great pool which you can use all the time. I will be back again soon. Thank you for everything.

Lovely location, great hospitality

That’s one of the best hotel that you can stay in Miami as its location is on great location, which is middle of everything there, and people are great at the hotel. Especially, Deniz is a great manager and does everything to make your stay perfect and his team, Dana, Anthony, and Chris are great hotel employees that you can meet.

I absolutely will stay there again and recommend to stay at this hotel⛱
