Hotelier and entrepreneur extraordinaire Ian Schrager’s South Beach outpost of his EDITION brand is set in a restored Art Deco gem on three and a half beachfront acres with two pools, a nightclub, a bowling alley, a skating rink and a celeb chef–helmed restaurant. Miami’s strict architecture code forced Schrager to preserve many of the building’s original 1955 details, including the lobby’s brilliant white marble floors and gold mosaic tile columns. All 294 guest rooms and 23 bungalows are understated, by Schrager’s standards, and appropriately beach-chic: light oak-paneled walls, white furnishings, sand-hued accents and ivory porcelain slab bathrooms. Many of the 294 guest rooms offer private terraces with direct beachfront views, finished with custom upholstered teak lounge chairs and glazed ceramic side tables. The vaunted Jean-Georges Vongerichten makes his Miami Beach debut in the sophisticated Matador Room, serving a modern interpretation of Latin cuisine influenced by Spanish, Caribbean and South American flavors.
In the Area
Ian Schrager and the Edition team took pains to preserve the 1955 Seville Hotel, proof that Art Deco style is king here. Go on your own photo safari and capture the world’s foremost examples of the style with an audio tour on your iPhone or a guided tour. Throw caloric caution to the wind with the fried chicken, biscuits and other haute downhome fare at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, a local favorite filled with pretty people getting down and dirty with bourbon and barbecue. While Ocean Drive itself can be touristy and mediocre foodwise – with the exception of Prime 112, De Rodriguez Cuba and BLT Steak – it also offers some wicked fun, especially at the neighboring Palace South Beach, renowned for its colorful drag shows. Parallel streets Collins and Washington avenues feature world class dining and nightclub options, ranging from the Bazaar by José Andrés in the SLS Hotel to Mansion nightclub. Perpendicular to the beach, walking mall Lincoln Road is great for people-watching and café-hopping.
How to Get There
I recently visited the Edition for a couple of days with my husband, and we had an amazing time. We hung out by the pool and had mimosas but the highlight for us was the Matador Bar. We had really great food and drinks but the main reason I wanted to write this review because of the incredible service we received from a waitress by the name of Ingrid. She was so kind and knowledgeable that it really made our experience exceptional. I highly recommend this hotel and especially the restaurant/bar. If you can ask for Ingrid, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks again!
There is a new Miami Edition in town and it can now be more adequately described as a uber child daycare that offers $200 breakfasts and resort fees that don't include an umbrella or an extra chair.
Gone are the days of this property being a south beach weekend getaway for adults who want relaxing weekend of sun, have amazing drinks, enjoy great food, and indulge in the nightlife.
This place has changed to a family friendly resort, with tons of kids and teenagers running around, complaining to their parents, slamming doors, and give the staff headaches.
While saying that, if you have kids and some extra cash, you may enjoy this place.
The simple math: $35 resort fee+ $25 umbrella, +$25 extra chair +$50 for parking =$35 to $135 in extra in fees per day.
My husband and I recently spent our vacation in Miami for a long weekend and stayed at the Edition Hotel. The Hotel was beautiful, very clean and smelled amazing. We spent most days enjoying the beach and pool. The grounds of the property are very tropical and serene. Dinner at the Matador Room was incredible and did not dissapoint. The Matador bar had a great band and the drinks were delicious. Our server Ingrid was so sweet and kind. She was wonderful along with the other hotel staff employees. We cannot wait to visit the Edition Hotel again. We will be back for our anniversary.
What an experience ! Hotel is great but the bar is perfect for a fun night with amazing drinks & the service impeccable . We were served by waitress Andrea who excelled with her service ! Nothing was too much for her despite keeping her busy on her toes , she kept the perfect smile combined with professionalism!
Thank you Andrea for making our night so perfect & enjoyable we definitely will be back again & again

Nice, minimalistic hotel. However, not sure I understand why they would line up the ocean with cabanas at the beach edge? There is NO view of the ocean unless you want to get a cabana at exorbitant prices. I’m surprised you can’t come to beach, rent beach chairs and enjoy the view and the ocean. Nope, not here.
