Miami is celebrated for its wild nightlife and South Beach’s enviable Atlantic setting – but there’s more to South Florida than the art deco poster image. Coconut Grove, the city’s oldest district, has a fantastic laid-back atmosphere, and an upscale mix of boutique shops in CocoWalk, gourmet restaurants, and beguiling ocean views. Explore the wonders of Magic City and experience bohemian bliss near the beach without sacrificing comfort or convenience with a stay at one of these top hotels in Coconut Grove, bookable with Culture Trip.

Don’t let the name fool you: the Mutiny hotel is one of the most welcoming places to stay in Coconut Grove. You won’t walk the plank but you will break a sweat in the sauna and steam room. Thankfully you can hop right into the outdoor pool to cool down. Your suite is equipped with a full kitchen – ideal for extended stays – but you can also dine on steak or ceviche at the Latin-inspired Table 14 restaurant.

Let’s be honest: you didn’t come to South Florida just to sit in your hotel all day. The thrills of Miami are beckoning – and even though the outdoor pool and hot tub are calling, Hampton Inn understands this. They make it easy for you to get up and go with “on the run” breakfast bags as well as free coffee, cookies, and fruit in the lobby. Best of all, you’re right by the Metrorail station and CocoWalk shopping mall, so you’re only minutes from the greatest attractions in the area.

The owners of iCoconutGrove have lived in the neighborhood for more than 35 years and own two popular restaurants in the area.

All rooms have a sedate stone-tone color palette and overlook the city, the ocean, or the bay – so you’ll have a bird’s-eye view of Coconut Grove whichever option you choose.
