Here, winters are mild, all while you’re enjoying all the comforts of the U.S. at luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach. While there are plenty of big chain lodgings with little personality, it’s easy to find charming accommodations too. Welcome to my four favorite luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach. 

1. Delano South Beach – An Art Deco Wonder Among Boutique Hotels South Beach Miami

Overall Experience

Without a doubt, Delano South Beach is my favorite of all boutique hotels South Beach Miami. An architectonic gem from the 1940s, it has nothing to envy the most iconic luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach. A superbly luxurious venue with a quirky and artistic touch, the Delano offers a unique experience!

Design & Boutique Feeling

Besides being one of the best boutique hotels South Beach Miami, the Delano is a true oasis. A beautiful and luxurious beach hotel in the middle of a bustling city, the boutique feeling is very present. The Delano has been a staple of the Miami skyline since 1947, and it was once the city’s tallest building. Still one of the most iconic boutique hotels Miami Beach!

Philippe Starck designed this gem among luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach back in the 40s. Love the mix of early 20th-century grandeur with the most modern amenities – a perfect setting!

On the outside, the Delano’s imposing Art Deco façade impresses you, but it’s the inside décor that’s seducing. Luxurious to the bone, the hotel’s different areas have a lot of flair, true to luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach. Whether it’s the modern and colorful bar or the pristine white breakfast area, you feel like a celebrity around boutique hotels South Beach Miami.

Room & Other Facilities

The only relative downside to this beautiful example of boutique hotels South Beach Miami was our room. It was a little smaller than we expected from one of the top luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach. Hotel rooms in the US are usually pretty large, and it wasn’t the case here, plus the room had a bit of a smell. Still, the design was charming, and we got a room change.

The bedroom had a lot of white details, it felt very luxurious and modern.

As for the rest of the facilities, everything was top notch and on par with top luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach. Each area was designed according to a particular feeling, such as the chill pool area in lots of blues.

Food & Drinks

The gastronomic offer was among the best of all boutique hotels South Beach Miami. The drinks here can compete with any of the top-notch luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach. The food was delicious, and that’s considering we had breakfast, lunch, and dinner here. It’s a great place to grab a meal, even if you’re not staying here.

My recommendation: eat on the veranda. You’ll get a beautiful view of the garden and the pool, unique among boutique hotels South Beach Miami!

Service

The Delano offers the kind of top-notch service, the kind you’d expect from boutique hotels South Beach Miami. We had a small comment regarding our room, and the staff was very accommodating and changed us. There’s no doubt this is one of the best luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach.

Location

The Delano enjoys a prime location right at the beach. It stands out among luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach for not only being well located but also offering a spot for peace in this busy part of town. All the bustling city is nearby, but you can still enjoy the quiet in one of the best best boutique hotels South Beach Miami!

2. W South Beach – A Big Chain Nailing the Luxury Boutique Hotels Miami Beach Feels

Overall Experience

While part of a large chain, the W South Beach gets the feel of boutique hotels South Beach. W Hotels might be too large to be considered truly “boutique,” but they make up for that in luxury. One of the best luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach!

Design & Boutique Feeling

The W brand is part of Marriott, one of the biggest hotel conglomerates in the world, so certainly, not boutique. Still, W is also the Marriott luxury-focused brand, and you can tell on every area of W South Beach!

I mean look at this, who wouldn’t want to chill here?

 

I love the design of this darling among boutique hotels Miami Beach. A wholly modern venue right at the beach, there’s opulence everywhere here. I loved the common areas in grey with splashes of color, like the purple couches and clear-colored design chaises. The outdoor areas feel a lot like an exclusive country club, some with lots of plants, and always with the Atlantic blue on the background.

W South Beach is a huge hotel, and an imposing building to behold. Despite the size, they’ve managed to keep the boutique feeling intact. You don’t feel like you’re at a Marriott but at one of the best boutique hotels South Beach Miami!

Room & Other Facilities

We fell in love with our room, just what we craved from one of the best boutique hotels Miami Beach. Our lodgings were big and spacious, facing the ocean. We woke up to the waves every morning, which is the best feeling in the world.

The rooms are entirely modern, all wide spaces in greys and whites, with a tinge of black and burgundy. The room was so big it had a living room – it was deluxe all around. For sure, one of the most incredible luxury boutique hotels South Beach Miami.

A huge bed, sitting area, modern design and balcony, definitely everything you could ask for

Food & Drinks

We didn’t eat here that often, and only had lunch at the hotel, which was okay. What stood out among luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach here was the breakfast buffet – truly outstanding!

Service

Even if the service was akin to one of the best boutique hotels South Beach Miami, it lacked the personal touch. Everyone was very professional, but it did feel like we were at a big hotel chain.

Location

The W South Beach is right on the beach, but a little away from the city’s center. Not optimal, but still one of the top luxury boutique hotels Miami Beach locations.

3. Faena Hotel – The Eclectic Star among Boutique Hotels South Beach Miami

We did not stay at this extremely cool and vibrant star among luxury boutique hotels Miami beach but spent an amazing evening here so I can strongly recommend it. If you are up for something unique, eclectic and playful design, then Faena Hotel is the place for you.

As soon as you enter the lobby with gold-leafed columns, a 30-foot long red carpets and walls with floor-to-ceiling colorful paintings, you feel like a star. That this is a one of a kind place.

Loved the backyard terrace as well as the cocktail bar with live music, mixing cabaret influences and kitschy elements like the red leather armchairs or the zebra-printed couches. You can also enjoy some cabaret shows here. As they say on the website – A place like no other!

4. East Hotel – The Hip & Vibrant Downtown Gem!

If you want to stay in Downtown Miami, I can strongly recommend this relatively new addition to the Miami hotel scene. East Hotel is located in Brickell’s neighborhood and has a young, hip and modern flair. A true lifestyle and community style addition to luxury boutique hotels Miami beach, all designed with Feng Shui, crystal healing methods and bio geometry as the core, giving it a peaceful still vibrant atmosphere. We did not stay here but tried out two of the restaurants, which both made it to the top of my list of luxury boutique hotels Miami beach and boutique hotels South Beach Miami.

I really enjoyed the lushly landscaped rooftop garden with an Asian touch, Sugar. Here you can enjoy a delicious dinner or drinks with a 270 view of the Magic City! For an urban oasis head to the outdoor terrace of  Quinto La Huella, where you will find yourself in a cozy jungle in the middle of the Miami skyscrapers. The food with Uruguay influences was truly delicious. The East Hotel, is for sure a favourite among luxury boutique hotels Miami beach and boutique hotels South Beach Miami.
