Take a break from Magic City’s flashier side at a low-key – but still undeniably stylish – base. The Julia, which is the only adults-only boutique hotel in the South of Fifth (SoFi) neighborhood of South Beach, recently underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation to bring its historic building into the modern era. Named after iconic “Mother of Miami Beach” Julia Tuttle, it will debut in July 2017 as a charming, friendly, laid-back and contemporary escape that holds just 29 rooms, so you can expect truly personalized service and a blissfully chill vibe.
When you do feel like hitting the town, you’re perfectly placed to do so, being among some of the top restaurants, shops and nightclubs in the city. Head to Fifth and Alton to pick up some new designer duds, Nikki Beach to rub shoulders with local VIPs and STORY to dance the night away. If you’d like to head north, a CitiBike station is just a few blocks over, while the beach is mere steps away. Fuel up for your nights with one other thoughtful Julia amenity: wine and cheese from 5 to 7pm each evening.
Your Julia room is one of just 29 at the hotel. It comes with a Wi-Fi connection and air conditioning. Flagler King rooms offer one king bed, while Flagler Twin rooms offer two twins.
The American Riviera. An Art Deco playground. Miami’s South Beach has been called many things, but one thing’s for sure – there’s no other place like it – and this hotel’s location, in up-and-coming SoFi, puts you steps from some of the world’s best shopping, nightlife, architecture, beaches, restaurants and history. Even just staying within a couple of blocks, you’ll be able to choose from iconic restaurants, like Joe’s Stone Crab and Prime Fish; ultra-exclusive clubs, like STORY and Nikki Beach; and an array of glam boutiques. The beach is a three-minute walk, and CitiBikes from the South of Fifth station can take you up the island and into other neighborhoods.
How to Get There
We spent three nights at the Julia.
The hotel itself is beautiful, the beds are comfy and it’s located in a quiet part of Collins Ave.
Being an adult exclusive hotel, the hotel guests were quiet and we had a great stay.
However, the customer service is just not good. We came to check in at 4pm, but the room wasn’t ready until 5pm. We never got any apologies for this, and the people at the front desk never gave us any smiles, ever. We just felt they were quite unfriendly and didn’t bother about their guests at all.
The hotel is great, but the customer service is really bad.
Would stay again, but it surprises me that the customer service hasn’t gotten any better, despite all the bad reviews about this. If the front desk were nicer, it would have been a 5 star rating.
I hope they do better in the future.
Nice stay but Had the room where you here everything in the lobby including the coffee machine brewing. Will stay again but. 101 room is a handicap. Room is clean bed not so comfortable but for 2 night I survived.
This hotel is small but in a good location for walking to the beach, restaurants, and bars. We were going on a cruise and came in early to see a little of Miami. Overall a good value for the money. We liked the staff friendliness and the happy hour was a nice touch. First floor rooms are a little noisy as you ca hear people walking above you.
