The Look

Art Deco bones and a rock & roll soul — that’s the Marlin Hotel, located in the throbbing heart of Miami Beach. Built by beloved architect Laurence Murray Dixon in 1939, the Marlin stood for South Beach cool under record producer Chris Blackwell in the 1990s, and in 2015 it got a full refresh.

Bed and Bath

The 14 modern guestrooms are a tech geek’s playground, starting with the 55-inch LED screens behind wall mirrors. But it’s more fun to play with the built-in musical “moods”; whether you choose Relaxing, Urban or Pop, you can count on top-notch sound, thanks to the Tannoy surround system, with subwoofer. The look is ultra-minimalist, with a muted gray and white palette, clean-lined white and chrome furniture and abstract Technicolor paintings. Bathrooms have rainfall showers with sumptuous William Roam products and plush robes.


Chef Michael Pirolo is at the helm of Bází, the hotel’s Asian-inspired restaurant serving up innovative fare including duck udon soup, pecan-topped baby bok choy and eggplant kobra kai. Make sure to stop by the sleek, fashion-forward bar for a molecular gastronomy-style cocktail.

A loverly Art Deco hotel in Miami Beach. Close to beach. Built in 1939. Rooms of differing sizes. Mine was very spacious with a king size bed and plenty of room and space. Only issues were the air con was not easy to control and when it turned on it blew a gail. Found the water temperature in the shower hard to regulate as it was a weird system worked on a sleeve which was hard to turn with wer hands. The restaurant was first class and the food excellent but not cheap. Could easily have shared the dessert. Service was very good and hotel staff extremely helpful. Would definitely stay again.
