Whether you’re enjoying a weekend on Miami Beach or a whole week of park-hopping around Orlando, you won’t regret booking a hotel that feels like home sweet home in Florida. A fully equipped kitchen – or handy kitchenette – saves you money on meals out, while tucking into honest-to-goodness dinners just like Mom used to make. Ready for your all-you-can-eat suite? Check out these hotels with kitchens in Florida, bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Mondrian South Beach

Hotel, Luxury


What could be better than a kitchenette in your suite? How about a home-cooked meal on your private balcony, with shimmering blue views of Biscayne Bay? It doesn’t have to stop with the food – Mondrian South Beach also arranges in-room pampering if you’re feeling too tired to even walk to the spa. If you do feel up to moving a few paces, try a change of scenery and rent a private cabana at the pool, drifting off cooled by breezes off the bay.

2. Seacoast Suites on Miami Beach



Luxury is layered on in the blue, grey and white expanse of your suite here, looking out over Miami Beach: a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious private balcony with rolling ocean views, and smart apartment-style furnishings leave you with little incentive to get up and go out. We do encourage you to slip on your flip-flops and hit the oceanside pool. At least once you should indulge in a blowout meal – cheeseburgers or spaghetti and meatballs – at the Tropical Lounge, after you’ve lazed away the morning on the beach, accessed directly and only moments from your room.

3. The Atlantic Hotel & Spa



Not only do you have the convenience of a kitchenette with all the mod-cons in your oceanfront suite – The Atlantic Hotel & Spa delivers a proper turnkey Florida vacation in Fort Lauderdale. Expect spa experiences and fine dining – sitting out at the hotel’s Wild Thyme Oceanside Eatery with a chicken parmesan Stack is unadulterated heaven. There are plenty of shopping opportunities in the vicinity. You’re also half a mile from the Beachfront Promenade – and less than two from Las Olas Boulevard and The Galleria mall, home to the likes of Banana Republic and Abercrombie & Fitch.

4. Westgate Lakes Resort & Spa

Resort, Spa Hotel, Apartment


Here’s a home away from home for all the family – nice and convenient for Universal Studios in Orlando. Along with their 24-hour business center, they also make “schoolcations” a breeze for kids, with high-speed wifi, desks, and full kitchens in certain suites. Once you’ve cleared your in-trays, the games room beckons. Go splash about at the water park, or go cycling en famille around the sprawling grounds.

5. Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Jacksonville

Hotel, Chain Hotel

Whether you’re in Jacksonville for business or pleasure, Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham is a great place to stay, at a nice price, with kitchenettes in some suites. Located just off of I-95, south of the city, it gives top bang for your buck with free breakfasts. If you’re travelling with family, oversized rooms are also available and there’s a sundries/mart in the lobby if you forgot to buy toothpaste, or fancy a quick bite.

6. Liki Tiki Village by Diamond Resorts



Weekend getaway or spontaneous overnight? Family reunion or straightforward holiday? Liki Tiki Village by Diamond Resorts in Orlando has condos with impressively equipped kitchens for an easy, comfy stay. You’ll find everything you need, down to silverware, a blender and cookware to rustle up a proper dinner banquet. Challenge the kids to a round of mini-golf or go fishing for the afternoon on the property. By now you’ll be ready to return and get stuck into that culinary extravaganza you made earlier.

7. Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort



Book in at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort and you’re practically next-door neighbours with Universal’s Volcano Bay, with its heart-in-mouth water slides, and Islands of Adventure, home to the hair-raising Jurassic Park River Adventure. Book one of their family suites with kitchenette and you’re basically staying in a cozy, secluded house that just happens to have dinosaurs out back. When you don’t feel like cooking, you can take a brisk stroll to Cabana Bay, home to several restaurants: Bayliner Diner is our choice for hot dogs and crinkle-cut fries. Or stay in and have a margherita from Delizioso Pizza delivered right to your room.

8. Sirata Beach Resort



Welcome to St Pete Beach: whether you pick an entry-level Traditional guestroom or a top-end one-bedroom suite at this hotel, you’re guaranteed bright-and-breezy interiors in shades of oceanic white and blue. You’ll need to reserve a studio, though, if you want a kitchenette (the others have fridges and – in some cases – microwaves). Not that you’ll want to idle over meals – step out of your room and you’re right on the sands, where Harry’s Bar does great waffles.
