Brand-new Urbanica The Meridian Hotel has one of the tip-top rankings among TripAdvisor Miami Beach hotels, along with a Certificate of Excellence, for its distinctive, welcoming brand of hospitality and attentive service. Clean, minimalist décor emphasizes whites and neutrals, to help you relax, while inviting common spaces include a cabana area and a glimmering pool with a deck flanked by loungers. Coffee and juices are available at the Food Marchand (plus to-go treats at the vending machines), while bikes await to take you around town.
Speaking of town, its highlights are right in your backyard from this urban oasis on the southern edge of South Beach. You’re near the heart of the action, in a chic area (South of Fifth, or “SoFi”) that’s become a destination in its own right – if one that’s still decidedly more laid-back than its neighbor. When not at home, you can be off dining on steak at Prime 112, splashing cash at the shops of the Lincoln Road Mall or dancing at the buzziest clubs in minutes. And if you’re headed to the beach, which is just a handful of blocks east, you’ll get private hotel service, so you can arrive like a VIP.

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 puts you within easy reach of some of the best shopping, nightlife, architecture, beaches, restaurants and history. If the people watching doesn’t take up your day, there’s plenty more to do. Pick one of the Prime restaurants in surrounding SoFi (South of Fifth), stroll Lincoln Road’s iconic walk, vacation in Spanish style on Española Way, soak up the sun on the white-sand coast, dine at a sidewalk café, or hit a bar in Miami’s legendary club scene. However you spend your stay, we promise you won’t want to leave.
How to Get There
Very nice ambiance. Close enough to walk everywhere, but in a quieter, local neighborhood. Lots of restaurants nearby. the whole hotel and the rooms are very clean. the staff is very helpful. Their breakfast and sandwich bar offers very tasty, fresh and affordable breakfast and lunch options.
Amazing quick stay before a cruise. Complimentary drink. Wonderful $10 breakfast. Clean crisp modern room. AMAZING staff. Sexton the manager even walked us out made sure we were happy. Young staff lady showed us around. Walk to beach. Definitely worth visiting
Recently stayed here for 4 nights. The location is great, close to all the South Beach attractions and in a pleasant, quiet neighbourhood. The cafe/breakfast room was good and included items from the famous Zaks Bakery. Staff were fine throughout our stay and in general dealt properly with any issues we had. The room was clean and modern, the bed very comfortable. However the hotel was probably the noisiest one I have ever stayed in. We were constantly aware of noise from other rooms, particularly those above. There was often a noise of running water due to pipes being enbedded in the walls. I needed to use ear plugs throughout my stay. There was also was a strong smell of dampness in the room.
The hotel was reasonably priced by Miami standards.
We stayed here on business recently. The rooms were very clean but on the small side. We were transatlantic travellers so had quite a bit of luggage, most of which had to stay in our cases. Having said that the staff made up for any shortcomings in the actual building. They were truly brilliant and could not do enough for you. The breakfast was quirky but very good value and, once again, the staff were great. Lovely little pool and chill out area and lots of free bikes to take out whenever you wished (although no lights for nighttime). A short walk to the beach and good value for money.
Our room was clean and pleasant although a little small. Comfortable beds. Pool was a bit chilly but refreshing. Great service by all staff. Didn't try the food but was nice to have free coffee and ice water available. Beach towels were good size. No complaints!
