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
What a beautiful little find this was!
4 of us stayed here for two nights before going on a cruise. The hotel is charming, with lovely decor, very cool rooms with beautiful bathrooms and lot of little touches that just made it really stand out from any other hotel we have stayed in recently.
There is a happy ‘hour’ 5-7pm with cheese and wine, the perfect way to start an evening. There is a beach bag and an umbrella in the room which you could use - we needed both during our stay! The rooms are well equipped and with a high ceiling, feel larger than their square footage.
There is a tea and coffee machine available 24hrs in reception, and a continental breakfast in the morning all included in the price.
The location is perfect, it’s incredibly quiet at the hotel, but a 5 min walk (if that!!) gets you to south beach. If you walk north, there are convenience stores such as CVS and Walgreens. There’s a bustling typical American restaurant a few minutes south, and a great dive bar next door to relax after a busy day.
Can’t recommend this place enough...we wished we were staying longer!
Not a bad hotel for the location, the staffs could be more friendly and the ladies at the desk could be a whole lot more welcoming. The happy hour was a nice treat and the 24 hour tea/coffee and hot chocolate was very nice
Lovely little boutique hotel on a famous street. The rooms were beautiful as was the beautiful little patio in front. Lovely for enjoying your complementary breakfast (French style) or the wine and cheese offered to the guests in the evening. Perfect location, close to beach, restaurants, and shopping.
