Headed to the party capital of the Sunshine State to enjoy sun-soaked beach living, oceanfront dining, and art deco delights? Take a look at the best places to stay in Miami, bookable with Culture Trip.
From the white sands of South Beach to the gleaming skyscrapers of Brickell, Miami is a thriving 24-hour city of contrasts. Family-friendly beach days merge into hedonistic party nights, while visitors can choose to stay in luxe sprawling resorts, stylish spa retreats, sociable hostels, or suburban hotels with more space for families. Florida sunshine is thrown in for free.
Live the Miami dream downtown in this sparkling 54-story tower, where every room has a balcony overlooking either Biscayne Bay or the city skyline. Head out on boat trips from the hotel’s very own marina, feast on handmade sushi at celebrated restaurant Zuma or sip rare spirits at the lounge in Maison FP Journe. There are barre and yoga lessons, two flash infinity pools, and, of course, the Kimpton’s famous nightly wine hour for socializing over complimentary drinks.
Families and groups traveling together looking for where to stay in Miami can make themselves at home in these two-bedroom, two-bathroom villas. All have a separate dining area, whirlpool bathtub, and a fully fitted kitchen with a fridge, oven, and dishwasher, so whipping up dinners after long days out is a doddle. Guests will also enjoy a heated outdoor pool, fitness center, small lakeside beach, games room, and family barbecue area.
Get more bang for your buck at this affordable hotel, in walking distance of Brickell’s buzzing restaurants and bars. Local calls, a hot breakfast, and 24-hour tea and coffee are all included, while a nightly happy hour starts every evening with a bargain. Recover the next day by the rooftop pool with cabanas and its own whirlpool overlooking the city.
Location is everything at the Gabriel Miami. The colorful, contemporary hotel is right by Highway 1, within half a mile (0.8km) of the American Airlines Arena and close to some of Miami’s best museums, including the Pérez Art Museum. Guests can also curl up with a book in the tranquil third-floor library lounge, relax by the outdoor pool or dine on zingy Latin American-inspired shared plates at the Cvltvra restaurant.
Social butterflies, foodies, and budget-minded travelers will love this impressive hostel, a five minutes’ walk from Miami Beach and less than a mile (1.6km) from South Beach. There are both communal and standard rooms, so you don’t need to share unless you want to. Enjoy sunrise yoga classes and a tropical-themed backyard with a pool. Evenings should be spent at the Freehand’s craft cocktail bar and excellent restaurant 27, which serves zingy global dishes such as crispy Haitian pork with chayote spicy coleslaw.
