Located between Española Way and South Beach, this chic bohemian hotel from the California-based Joie de Vivre puts guests in the heart of the action. Designer Robert McKinley was the mastermind behind the head-to-toe revamp, and he brought a West Coast–meets–South Beach ambience to the guestrooms and public spaces in all three of the hotel’s buildings. The 163 guestrooms have a tropical motif, hardwood flooring and walls washed in mint green and Florida orange. There are plenty of mod cons, too, including 42-inch flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers, luxurious bed linens and Jonathan Adler bath products. Kick back in the 5,000-square-foot back yard (or play some bocce, ping-pong or shuffleboard) or sip a cocktail at one of the picnic tables under the sprawling banyan tree. For some aquatic R&R, there’s an Olympic-size pool with comfy baby blue and white striped cabanas, as well as private beach access with free chairs. Sunny’s restaurant serves breakfast and lunch favorites including Jersey Shore sandwiches (ham, cheese and an egg sunny-side up) and a grilled grouper Reuben with Cajun spices.
In the Area
For Cuban and Spanish cuisine and live music, head to Española Way, the lively Latin neighborhood, which has several outstanding restaurants. Tapas and Tintos even hosts salsa dance lessons every Tuesday night. For specialty cocktails in a unique setting, Radio Bar has a backdoor entrance and everything from bourbon to absinthe-infused beverages. Get out on the water with Boucher Brothers water sports for paddleboarding, jet ski tours, parasailing, kayaking and deep sea fishing. Shoppers can stroll a few blocks down to the Lincoln Road Mall or drive to the Miami Design District, a hub for architecture and fashion seven miles from the heart of South Beach. Miami’s sizzling nightlife offers an array of options, but the Mansion nightclub is in the Art Deco District, making it a convenient choice.
How to Get There
We stayed here for our first time in Miami back in September 2017.
The hotel was in a perfect location, right in the heart of South Beach, walking distance to all the major attractions...less than a few mins to the beach, restaurants, bars and shops all on the doorstep.
The hotel was super busy when we arrived with a pool party happening. Our room overlooked the busy Collins Avenue which was awesome. The room was art-deco and we felt right at home in Miami. We had a corner room, so lots of space, the wooden floors were slightly uneven and creaky - but that added to the character. The major negative point of the room was the bathroom was extremely small and very dated.
Our room was very comfortable, although the walls/ceilings were quite thin, so somewhat noisy - the windows were barely sound insulated either.
The pool was large, and relaxing when there wasnt a pool party going down. However, lots of litter was left around and in the pool after the party. Not great - needed cleaning up quicker.
The outside bar was also amazing and chilled to sit at in the evening under the amazing big tree.
We loved our stayed here, such a shame to see it has now closed.
This hotel looks amazing, the style and design are perfect but it is the little things which matter. The 'free' cocktail you are offered on checking in is a tiny pathetic thing that has barely sniffed any alcohol and I was a bit put out to be charged a resort fee each day for their spot on the beach, wether you use it or not. I think it would make more sense if you pay if you use it. That said, the pool suite we had was huge and spotlessly clean with a lovely balcony although the coffee machine was rubbish compared to the Nespressos you usually get in European hotels these days. The bar area at the back was also nice and buzzy of a evening and a handy shortcut to Espanola Way etc.
Beautiful art deco style hotel with friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. We stayed as part of a Contiki group and this hotel is well situated for access to the beach and many restaurants that we enjoyed. I was quite sick the second day of our stay and the hotel was a perfect quiet place to relax in bed with air conditioning and a pool available. I fell in love with the hotel as soon as I saw it and when I return to Miami, I will absolutely stay here again
