A stylish stay at a chic Art Deco-style hotel in the heart of sizzling South Beach

The Lowdown

Deco gets a modern touch at Pestana Miami South Beach. Within this property’s four Historical Preservation Board-classified buildings, it’s all pinks, golds and navy blues, arranged in minimalist color-blocking schemes, alongside crisp whites. The nautical-chic guest rooms of Pestana Miami South Beach are furnished with modern décor, in a palette that emphasizes navy and gold. An iPod docking station and bathrobes are all on hand in each, as is a LED TV. Art Deco King rooms range from 280 to 390 square feet and offer one king bed.  Known as a trendy SoBe hangout spot with drinks, food, and live entertainment at night, Mermaid Café & Bistro features funky décor, high-end cocktails, and great—all served next to the pool and its stylish sun loungers.

In the Area

This hotel’s location puts you at the heart of some of the world’s best shopping, nightlife, architecture, beaches, restaurants and history. Keep with the old-meets-new theme as you step out and turn onto Collins Avenue, one of the most famous thoroughfares in the nation. Here, you’ll find dozens more Art Deco hotels, plus a hip 21st-century scene: cutting-edge restaurants, crowded dance clubs, new sushi joints and shops with the latest in bikini styles. And if you want something that pairs perfectly with 1930s glamour and present-day flair alike, simply head to the beach – just the next block over. If the people-watching doesn’t take up your day, there’s plenty more to do. Stroll Lincoln Road’s iconic walk, vacation in Spanish style on Española Way, soak up the sun on South Beach’s famous white-sand coast, dine at a sidewalk café, or hit a bar in Miami’s legendary club scene.

The hotel is great! The bed is very comfortable, and the rooms are clean and pretty! The hotel has the perfect location: close to Licoln road and Ocean drive, so I basically never needed a car. The staff are really caring and helpful! I recommend Pestana Hotel. Ps: the restaurant is great!

Exellent Staff and Location
Reviewed 5 days ago

Located in the heart of Miami Beach very close to Lincoln Road and many other attractions Pestana is a perfect choice with large rooms and an amazing staff - highlighted by Geroge - the portuguese manager and Igor - the bellboy.
The swimming pool is heated and they provide towels for the pool e beach and also the hotel has a beach service with chairs, umbrella and beverage for a fee.
The minors goes to:
- the bottom of the pool is rough and you can hurt yourself with light moves
- the minibar. Unfortunately always empty.
