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.

How to Get There

Great location, fabulous rooms, lovely staff. Would definitely stay again!

The rooms are really light and airy, with incredibly comfy beds - if they are too soft, you can request to change which I’ve never seen before.

With the room you get free access to beach chairs, with the beach just a few minutes walk away.

Despite being close to both Collins Avenue and Lincoln street mall it was lovely and quiet.

Lovely hotel on a quiet street. The cleanliness of the hotel is excellent with super comfortable beds. Very helpful, friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble
A great location for exploring, nice restaurants near by

Relaxed, amazing service!

Stayed here with 4 friends after a cruise for 2 nights, on a recommendation. It was ideal! Perfect location for beach, restaurants and shops. The service was what particularly stood out for us though - friendly and welcoming with complimentary wine hour on a Wednesday and a complimentary pastry on check in. The bed I had was lovely and I had the mattress 'flipped' to harder at no bother. Towels and loungers on the beach as well as the pool was a great touch. 100% would return.
