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
First timer, I and my girls wanted to try a new spot for ladies night. We went to matador bar and we're already loving the ambiance and vibe. I was indecisive on what to order, so our cocktail waitress Andrea recommended the pineapple. I couldn't have been happier! We ordered food which was great. However, the cocktails made the night and our waitress was fantastic. She was quick, attentive, and friendly. Im looking forward to another ladies night at matador bar soon.
My partner and I really enjoyed this hotel.
The area above the pool is simply gorgeous, so much greenery!
The one thing that really stood out was the attentive staff. Mauro G and Alex from the pool/beach were both great! The provided excellent service. We will be returning!
In all fairness, I have yet to check in, but this messenge was sent to me just now. I’m wondering if I’m being warned to expect an average stay.
Traveled the world and stayed at most recognized resorts. Never got this message before.
I will update once I check in....
“I see that you are arriving on March 22nd . We are expecting high occupancy during your stay and this limits our opportunity to extend complimentary upgrades to our loyal rewards members. My team and I will be sure to assign you to the best option available within your confirmed room category, but I wanted to reach out to you in advance.
I look forward to welcoming you to The Miami Beach Eddition “

Our stay at the Miami Beach Edition Hotel was nothing short of spectacular. Everything from the time we checked was incredible. The wait at Matador room was long, so we decided to try the Matador Bar. Our cocktail server really went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and it was by far some the most professional customer service I’ve experienced in a while, I believe her name was Andrea. We ordered the sweet pea guacamole, the tuna tartare, mushroom pizza and a few drinks. Everything was delicious, the tartare so fresh! The food was above our standards and the service was impeccable. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Miami.
You can have in this place not only good amenities, clean rooms and good service but also you can find in their restaurants a wonderful food and in the basement at night there is so much fun just in one plece that you don’t have to go outside for anything. I can feel the authenticity of a brand an special in a new “Era “ of the Hospitality Industry!
