Miami minimalism meets Moroccan maximalism at the Shore Club. Gauzy white curtains help guests play hide-and-seek amid the sexy glow of lanterns in the Art Deco lobby, while the lush gardens, inspired by Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech, invite lounging with their low-slung daybeds piled with patchwork textiles and hammered copper trays to hold those icy caipirinhas. Upstairs, 309 rooms are ultra-minimalist affairs with clean-lined modern furniture and a white-on-white palette punctuated by an orange-framed mirror here, a kelly green sconce there. The luxury is in the details: Egyptian cotton sheets, huge flat-screen TVs, down duvets, and sandstone bathrooms that include peekaboo glass showers and fragrant Malin + Goetz products. Most people come to South Beach for the nightlife, and Shore Club sits at the center of it all with the sprawling indoor-outdoor Skybar club, the tropical-themed Rumbar, and the sumptuous Redroom lounge, a mingling of silky French antiques, glimmering beaded walls, and lacquered teak floors. When hunger strikes, head to the casual Italian chophouse, Terrazza. Also on-site: a Zen-like ocean-view spa, two infinity pools, and a swath of white-sand beach.
In the Area
Follow Miami Beach’s oceanfront path all the way down to South Pointe Park, the picturesque end of South Beach. It’s the perfect place to take in the sunset, watch the departing cruise ships, or ogle the impossibly good-looking locals walking their dogs. 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. 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. SoBe’s Frank Gehry–designed New World Center makes high culture hip with a theater that transforms after hours into a nightclub-style venue mixing electronica and classical music.
How to Get There
My boyfriend and I stayed at Shore club for 2 nights back in July and we had a great experience. After being stuck in Havana Cuba airport for 14 hours we finally arrived to check in for our first night at around 11.30pm. The staff at the front desk were so pleasant and friendly and suggested some late night diners for us to eat at as we were starving. The pool is nice and although the drinks are pricey they are completely standard prices for anywhere else in the area. Our room didn’t have a view but it was super comfy and clean. The bathroom was huge aswell. All in all we had an amazing experience and can’t wait to come back!!
I had an amazing time at shoreclub, the most remarkable experience was at the beach. Once i stepped onto the beach Andy and Raymond made our day wonderful they greeted us with an amazing energy sold us a beach bed and made sure that everything was on point best birthday experience i would definitely be back and recommended Shore Club to other travelers! Thank you gentlemen!
This was my 6th trip to South Beach / Miami.
- Location is great! It's a beachfront property and is in walking distance to Ocean Dr, Lincoln Rd, great restaurants, etc.
- Hotel is pretty well-kept and clean. The lobby smells amazing!
- Front desk staff is very kind and helpful.
- Spacious rooms! We had 5 guests in one room and used two queen beds + a rollaway with no problem.
- On top of the hotel property fees, expect to pay additional fees to utilize beach chairs, umbrellas and/or tents at the beach. I may be off by a dollar or two but I believe it was $15 per chair, $22 per umbrella.
- Fees are NOT displayed and vary by day or by hotel staff assisting. On day one, we purchased a tent at the front for $75 as it made sense to do so rather than purchase chairs. On day two, we went to do the same but were told it is $125. We then opted for the chairs, whereby the umbrellas were already stuck in the sand. But, since we were only able to afford one umbrella, the remaining umbrellas were removed.
- Towels were not ready 2 of the 3 days we visited the beach/pools
- STAFF AT THE BEACH WAS EXTREMELY RUDE. I would not want their job and I'm glad I don't have to do it. I can't imagine waiting on people in the hot weather while trekking through the hot sand. BUT, my group was treated very poorly by some of the staff. Within only two hours of being on the property and setting up at the beach, my friend asked where she could get water and the waitress told her, "I'm not bringing you water but you can go over there to the pitchers." My friend went "over there" and when a hotel staff started pouring her a pitcher of water to bring back to our group, the same waitress went out of her way to come over and stop him whilst saying, "WE HAVE WATER BOTTLES FOR A REASON!" Water bottles at the beach are sold for $8+. My friend mentioned that the waitress had just explained she could come here to get water to which the waitress curtly responded, "I know what I said!" Not cool, Shore Club, not cool.
- Gratuity is already added to your checks (I'd be okay with this because I never tip under 20% but, in this case, I would have preferred not to pay $2 for every single pina colada I ordered when it didn't even taste as though rum had been added...)
I've stayed at much nicer hotels for around the same price without having to pay additional fees and with much kinder service. I'd actually recommend staying next door at the nautulis hotel (although, rooms are a bit smaller here).
