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
My amazing bartender Patricia aka, “Frenchie”, has been amazing! She not only gave me recommendations for things to do at local businesses before my flight but also was very knowledgeable about the scotch, bourbon whiskey selection. Everyone should come here when in Miami Beach!
We just finished an awesome stay at the Anglers. The hotel is top notch. The service, Mel at the front desk and Daniel at the Seawell restaurant, was high class. They took care of every need including texting us everyday like we had our own butler service. The hotel is new with large chic rooms with balconies. The pool is great with plenty of loungers. There’s even a quote on the building from the Grateful Dead (sick). The bar downstairs has a fabulous happy hour. The Seawell and Oyster restaurant has food to die for (get the crudo, oysters, fried chicken, lobster poutine). We will definitely be back. Thanks for the tremendous service, food, and drinks!
I haven’t stopped talking about this hotel since I left. Seriously. I can’t even believe how clean the room was. Everyone I encountered was so nice and I truly felt so comfortable here. I am already headed back this week. I don’t rave over hotels often, but this one I would recommend to anyone!
