Hotel | "My Favorite South Beach Boutique Hotel"

During a recent work trip to Miami Beach, I ended up having to change hotels several times based on last minute reservation issues. I initially had a hotel booked for the entire time, but it ended up being a bad experience and I checked out within the first couple hours. I decided it was worth taking other reservations night by night instead. My final stay where I ended up settling down after my many moves was the lovely Albion Hotel. This gem of a boutique hotel is where I'll stay on future visits to South Beach for sure. I was working in the South Beach area as well as the Miami Beach Convention Center, and the location of the Albion was very convenient.They offer valet parki...Read More

I recently returned from Miami Beach during a work week at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for swimwear. During the week I spent, I had to move around to several hotels in and near South Beach because of the late reservations and huge crowds for the events. Although it wasn't convenient to move rooms and locations, I was able to get a good overview of various hotels - some I would never stay again, a wonderful boutique, a standard chain-hotel, and luxurious penthouse.The very first hotel which I was able to book in advance (actually for the entire duration of my time in Miami) was Island House. It had pretty good reviews, looked just fine from the photos, was convenient to the area where I ...Read More

During a business trip to Miami, we decided to make a small vacation out of it as we hadn't really explored this city before hand. Living only several hours up the Atlantic coast, Miami still seems like a world of it's own, and many Floridians say that it doesn't even feel like part of the state, and instead an extension of the Cuban, Haitian, and other cultures more south of this colorful metropolis.As we had some time to use in a timeshare program, we chose the Solara Surfside Resort to spend a few nights. Located in Surfside Beach (a beach just north of South beach and part of the greater Miami/Miami Beach area), this resort is just outside of the crazy busyness, but still close enough ...Read More

During a recent business trip to Miami Beach, I ended up having to stay at several hotels. Because the initial place I'd booked for the entire stay ended up to be unacceptable, I couldn't find another place with such late notice, and so had to jump hotels a few times before settling again. One night I ended up at the Best Western on the Bay which is located in North Bay Village.I was working in South Beach, and this hotel was about 7 miles north so wasn't the most convenient, but it was almost nice to get away from the madness of South Beach for a night of rest. This hotel is a pretty standard chain hotel. The staff was friendly, and the room was adequate and clean. There's an ...Read More

If you're looking to curl up in the lap of luxury while in Miami Beach, then look no further than the W South Beach. W is always known for the consistent quality hotels around the world. Nothing is overlooked here, and so many extra details will surprise you throughout the visit.I was lucky enough to stay here for one night during a work with in South Beach. Because of some last minute issues with reservations, I ended up jumping hotels a few times throughout the week but really enjoyed my one night at the W. Some friends of mine had a suite on the penthouse level which I got to share.From the moment you walk in the lobby, you can see the exclusivity of the place. I was told th...Read More
