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 hotel was AMAZING. My friends and I came down to South Beach for a bachelorette party and the staff were SO friendly and completely went above and beyond. Janice, Esther and Dion all made sure we were taken care of and gave us great tips and advice. The hotel rooms were well insulated so we didn't disturb other guests and 10 minutes away from the main area of South Beach which meant it was nice and quite to come home to. The interior of the hotel and the rooms was very cool, very clean and the pool was awesome. It was an amazing experience. I would recommend this to anyone and return as a romantic getaway or for friends - it's great for all experiences.
Kimpton pulled off another winning model with its Angler's Hotel in South Beach. It's informal cool and the vibe is as hot as the beach attire. We enjoyed a two level suite in a converted home adjacent to the main building. I would suggest staying in the building in a suite.
The Anglers is in a great location just 2 blocks away from Ocean Drive and the beach so slightly quieter than the main strip. There was some noise as our rooms were just above the bar (it’s amazing how loud a game of Jenga can get when you mix beer!). The rooftop pool was great and never too busy. Complimentary drinks at 5pm each day was a nice touch and daily complimentary coffee was very good. Staff at the hotel couldn’t be more helpful. Valet parking was quite expensive (parking in Miami isn’t easy to find) as was the breakfast but there are plenty of places to eat nearby. There is building work going on across the street but it never disturbed us. Rooms were clean, modern and very well maintained, would definitely stay here again.
