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
Great location. Nicely designed small boutique hotel. We wish the owners invested in staff and creating family like atmosphere without cutting corners like shortage of toweles, toiletaties, skimpy breakfast with just croissants and not even yougurt at times.
Nice Place to stay. Near to the beach. We had long to wait at the reception when we arrived. Very friendly and helpfully staff. Fruits would be good for breakfest. Its unconfotabel to have Breakfest in the Lobby. But overall it was a nice stay.
The pictures dont reflect the sterile low personality of this hotel ...had to wait 30 minutes for someome to turn up to check me in ...and when they say adults only read geriatrics ....complete with chair lifts and disabled seats in the showers
The Julia is a nice place and good location, just make sure your room is not close to the lobby on the first floor. There are noise issues. “Breakfast “ is just coffee and croissants . There is no staff around after hours if you have any issues
Stayed for three nights, three couples going on a cruise. Read previous reviews before arriving and I must say we found the staff more than friendly, they were very helpful, friendly and even walked us up the road to show us where to pick the bus up. Suzanna and Johanna, lovely girls. Yes you could hear visitors arriving and leaving, but it was no problem. The beds were really comfortable and although fairly basic, the rooms were totally adequate for what we wanted. It’s in a good position, one block back from beach. Walkable to many restaurants. We got a taxi to bayside marketplace 20 dollars there 26 back between 6, so inexpensive. Booked Everglades with hotel. Good trip, smoothly run. Breakfast very basic but we knew when we booked. Just coffee tea chocolate and cake croissants and toast. The drinks machine is free all day and night, fab! Also cheese/biscuits and free flowing wine at 5 everyday, we had this and sat outside in the verander at front of hotel, lovely chill out time. Would stay again and definitely recommend. Thanks girls, Janice Tony, Judy Paul, Mandi Daren
