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.

Hidden Gem

Travel to Miami frequently for business and stayed at many South Beach hotels. I picked this hotel because of its location and it has by far exceeded my expectations. It is my new favorite in South Beach. Very clean. Great service. Daily Breakfast and loung chairs and umbrellas were included in my rate. Definitely recommend
