We often get phone calls, text messages, emails and DM’s asking us what the best hotels are in Miami.   That is a difficult answer because some people want to stay directly on the Ocean and watch the Sunrise.  Some want to watch the Sunset.   Some want to be close to certain restaurants.   Yet others just care about price.   Here is the #DefinitelyMiami short list of MIAMI BEACH HOTELS.

Hilton Bentley located South of Fifth

Hilton Bentley Located in the South of Fifth neighborhood of South Beach, across from Prime 112.  The hotel is located directly on Beach, with many rooms having direct sunrise views from the balcony.  Typically, the price range $300 to $700 night.  To make life easy for you during your stay, several top restaurants are within a few steps.  Santorini’s is Miami Beach’s best Mediterranean restaurant and is located in the building. Walk to South Pointe Park and Pier, Smith and Wollensky, Big Pink, Papi Steak and Carbone.  Breakfast at Pura Vida.  This is one of the top places to stay on the Beach! 

Kimpton Angler Hotel in South Beach

KIMPTON ANGLER’S People that stay here absolutely love this place!!!!  Located right in the heart of the Entertainment District the hotel offers a serene repose amidst the chaos.  This is an awesome property by service standards.  Service is key in Miami. Many people rave about the accommodating and hospitable staff making it a memorable stay. There cannot be a better location to stay at south beach at this value.  It is one block from the beach and just steps from the South of Fifth neighborhood with the best restaurants in the world including Papi Steak, Prime 112, Carbone and Smith & Wollensky.

Mondrian Hotel South Beach

Poolside at the Mondrian South Beach is the height of luxury.

Mondrian Our all time favorite.  This is a smaller hotel on the Bay in South Beach with a very quaint feel and mazing Bay Views including the best sunsets in Miami!!!!  Prices range $300 to $1000 per night.  The staff is very accommodating and eager to help.  There is a first class restaurant by the pool.  Our suggestion is to fly to Miami and plant yourself on a bed poolside — you will never leave the hotel!  The Mondrian is unique to Miami Beach in that it is right in the middle of a residential neighborhood.   There are plenty of local restaurants, coffee shops, gyms and boutiques right outside your door.  The hotel is centrally located with most of Miami less than $15 to $20 Uber ride away.

The Mondrian lobby has one of the most intimate bars to enjoy a cocktail before heading out at night. Ask for our favorite bartender, Eduardo!

The One Hotel  One of the most exclusive Hotels on Miami Beach. Super high end but awesome.  Once you walk in, you realize that this place is different.  The smell.  The energy feels connected to the Earth.   Got o the elevator and go to the Rooftop and enjoy a meal or a cocktail.  Walk out to the pool and enjoy the sun or walk right onto the beach and catch some waves.  Prices range from $500 to $2500 a night.

The One Hotel is a top 5 destination in Maimi

There are a few restaurants in the building including STK steakhouse as well as Anatomy Gym and a few Boutiques.  The area is a  good walking neighborhood with many local stores and restaurants.  Since the One Hotel is directly on the beach, most of the rooms have an amazing wide view of the coast and the sunrise. Mostly everything in Miami is a $20 Uber ride.
