Angler’s Miami, South Beach is made up of four graceful Mediterranean Revival buildings built in the 1930s by architect Henry Maloney. In 2007, a meticulous renovation revamped the buildings, creating one of the unsung jewels in South Beach’s ostentatious crown. Eschewing SoBe’s cliché pastel-and-white palette, the hotel features rich, dark woods and a neutral color scheme that brings warmth to its interiors.
Bed & Bath
Accommodations come in three types: Studios, Manor Villas and Lofts. Although some of the one-level Studios have balconies or terraces with pool or city views, it’s well worth the upgrade to the duplex villas that have main-level living areas and second-floor bedrooms linked by a spiral staircase. All rooms come with nice touches like plasma TVs, yoga mats, Keurig coffee makers, and state-of-the-art audio systems.
Chill out in a poolside cabana or on a sun bed (where you can also get an outdoor spa treatment), or stroll a couple of blocks to the beach, where the Angler’s guests have beach concession billing privileges in a designated area of the sand near 7th Street. The resort’s Mediterranean restaurant, 660 at the Angler’s, will make you never want to go out, with its cozy indoor and lushly landscaped outdoor spaces. Its unlimited make-your-own Bloody Mary and mimosa brunch, appropriately called the Adult Hangover Brunch, can take up a whole Sunday, while a live guitarist plays hip but mellow tunes.
In the Area
The 400-slip Miami Beach Marina is within a 15-minute walk from the Angler’s. The hotel’s concierge can easily book sailing or dive charters for you. Throw caloric caution to the wind with the fried chicken, biscuits and other haute down-home fare at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, a local favorite filled with pretty people getting down and dirty with bourbon and barbecue. Work it off across from the hotel at the South Florida Boxing Gym. Guests get free passes. Pick up threads and sky-high heels fresh from the runway at designer boutique Alchemist, which has locations at the beach end of Lincoln Road and in the Herzog & de Meuron–designed 1111 Lincoln Road.
How to Get There
This was our fourth visit to the Angler’s but our first time staying in the new section. Wow! It’s gorgeous! The colors are beautiful and the decor is perfect!
Our room was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. I loved the bed! Kimpton bathrooms are always my favorites and this one didn’t disappoint. The blue tile matched the blue accents throughout the hotel - nice touch!
We are always impressed with the high level of service Kimpton employees provide and this time, by staying longer, we got to enjoy some wonderful people. Chris at the front door was there almost every time we walked by, offering assistance and friendly smiles.
At the front desk, Chrissy was spectacular. Her dinner recommendation of Fratelli la Bufala was excellent. Make sure you check them out - the food is awesome and their wine list is surprisingly high end with good prices. Chrissy provided several other suggestions and was incredibly sweet.
The bar is the perfect spot for a creative cocktail or a glass of wine. Andrew kept us coming back each evening!!
We’ll be back in Miami at some point next year and look forward to seeing the renovation of the original hotel. Given what they’ve done with the new addition, I expect it will be stunning!!
I want to start by saying my husband and I own with ihg so we travel multiple times a year and we have never written a bad review. I planned on leaving a 5 Star review until I landed today and checked my bank statement. This hotel charged me $700 for a “broken tv.” I’ll start by saying this, my husband and I were staying in Miami to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and relax. We watched the tv every night as we do at home and used the remote to turn the tv off and on (the tv is mounted to the wall). We never even went close enough to the tv to do any damage to it.
We called the front desk and they have two desk managers and neither of them are at the hotel or available to call us. The lady at the front desk gave me zero information and just said “I don’t have any notes or photos on my end. I can’t see anything and I can’t get any information until the manager is in tomorrow.” So my husband calls and now she has notes (that we still haven’t been emailed) from housekeeping saying the tv was unplugged and had a scratch on the screen.
I’ve never been scammed like this in my life. We had the tv on right until we checked out and never got close enough to unplug it or cause any damage. So either housekeeping damaged it while cleaning and blamed on us, or this hotel scams people.
To make matters worse, we never received an email, phone call, or any receipt of this damage. They just charged the card.
We loved our stay here and planned on returning...until this happened. You would think a boutique hotel would care more about their customers
Attached is the photo of the tv which clearly has an unopened champagne bottle under it which means other people were in this room.
Wonderful hotel! 5 minutes walk from Ocean drive and 7 minutes from the beach, but quiet and very comfortable. The hotel is brand new, the rooms are very clean and spacious. What else was pleasantly surprised: room cleaning is wonderful, thorough, and even 2-3 times! And unnoticed, no one comes to clean when you're in the room. They came after the beach, left things and went for a walk, and in the evening after the walk you can see that they removed the beach towels, made a wet cleaning, etc. Highly recommend! If you go back to Miami Beach, be sure to stay here again! Super! Special thanks I would like to express to the team that works in the hotel: Noela, Caroline, Chrissy, Taras. Thank you so much for first-class service.
Roof top pool is a cool idea, but the large construction crane goin giver head all day long is scary. I don’t know how safe it is to have a crane over the pool deck??
It is a new property will nice design and furniture, but no ocean view and quite a far walk to the beach.
Add it it, the noise from the traffic on the road all night, the noise from the construction all day, and homeless people living at the bus stop in front of the hotel 24/7, makes me think I have better options in Miami Beach for my next visit.
We planned a last minute trip and I wasn't sure we would be in the right place here with 2 little kids, but i couldn't have been more wrong. From the moment we walked in and were welcomed in the beautiful lobby, I knew we'd love it. The staff was warm and welcoming, the hotel was beyond clean and beautifully decorated. From morning coffee service to poolside fitness classes and evening wine hour, we loved our stay. The room was beautifully decorated, a bit different from the standard Miami Art Deco, more of a modern beach vibe. There were bikes, beach bags, yoga mats and umbrellas available to use, and we felt welcome and comfortable for our stay!
