Miami Beach is the epitome of city life, meets the beach, everyday luxuries paired with great restaurants, Art Deco buildings, cultural happenings, an art week that attracts the world, and so much more. We have rounded up the city’s most exciting hotels, from a gem tucked in Española Way, a pit stop of the whos who, and a hotel owned by Pharrell Williams and David Grutman.

Just off the beach busyness on Washington Avenue, The Goodtime Hotel seems to have traded bustle for bliss, so you have just that — a good time. As AHL contributor Florencia Galarza sums it, “Luscious spot in Miami Beach with plenty of good vibez.” Amazing music, service, food, drinks, and overall good feels. What more can you expect from a hotel created by Pharrell Williams and Miami hospitality icon David Grutman

We’ve been enjoying its beach-meets-urban resort since its inception. Located north of Miami Beach, the EDITION brings its elevated hospitality ethos to the oceanfront, mixing the personalized perks of a lifestyle hotel with the amenities of a resort. “Contemporary yet refined lux with a splash of flash — this is Miami, after all,” says AHL contributor Estelle Frances Bailey-Babenzien. With spacious rooms and suites, world-class dining, and the unbeatable essence of Miami all at your fingertips, this one is hard to beat.

California-based family-owned Palisociety’s Miami outpost effortlessly embraces colorful boho-beach chic. Just a little off the ocean, Palihouse’s excellent amenities, from a pool to all-day dining at its restaurants, do not make you miss the beach. But speaking of exceptional service, when you do miss it, their concierge will take you right to the shore.

Set in a 15-story tower at the northernmost point of the Art Deco district, Soho Beach House is your gateway to sand, sea, sun & sexy — the best of Miami without the cheese. AHL contributor Kate Dougherty counts the interior design with freestanding bathtubs and leather club chairs, along with Cowshed products in the room and at the spa, among the pros of this buzzy club/hotel. From delicious food at Cecconi’s to extra large beach lounges. Soho House has got you covered, if you are a member.

Located on Belle Isle, not too far from all the bustle of South Beach, The Standard brings its trademark playful hospitality to Miami’s action center. AHL contributor Jauretsi Saizibitoria notes it as “a pitstop for the who’s who” in the creative industries. More a spa than a hotel, The Standard Miami leans into the relaxing side of the city with peaceful tropical gardens, rooms with private terraces and outdoor soaking tubs, an indoor and outdoor hydrotherapy playground, and dozens of spa options. An adult-only playground, please bring your inner child only.

Tucked away in Española Way — on the calmer side of Miami Beach, Esmé marries historic revitalization with modern-day brand and experience. AHL contributor Florencia Galarza calls it “Spanish beach chic in South Beach’s quiet quarters.” Once a meeting place for artists and outcasts, Esmé brought an intimate Art Deco building back to life as a luscious lifestyle hotel worth your time and penny.

With six unique restaurants, a couple of bars, four fabulous pools, and an impressive gym, among other amenities, 1 Hotel South Beach is a paradise of excess with something for everyone. A true reflection of the city’s abundance, it is located in the heart of Miami Beach, with every hotspot just a little walk away. As Jennifer Isicoff, an AHL contributor, wrote, “This hotel is an eco-friendly marvel. Although everything down to the room key is made from sustainable materials, this hotel still manages to achieve an aesthetic that is refined, elegant, and chic.” We love a sexy sustainable baby.
