Torn between the loud, raucous, good-time vibe of a crazy party hotel, but love the idea of having your own place, a kitchen to prepare snacks, free Wi-Fi, and in-suite laundry? Well, who needs to choose one or the other? Here’s the plan: you book one of our awesome South Beach studios just steps from the beach and Lincoln Road, and then, you can spend your pool/pick-up/tipsy time at these party hotels, before sleeping in late in the morning under our luxury linens in a peaceful, private building. Win!
The Cleavelander: Most good party stories from Spring Break on South Beach can somehow be traced back to the Clevelander Hotel. This has been ‘the’ party spot for people from all walks of life who are drawn to the drink specials, the music, and the pool bar. The hotel underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in recent years. With an ‘anything goes’ atmosphere’, the Clevelander is going to be a hot spot for years to come.
Standard Miami: Even though the hotel promotes health and wellness at its spa, the 24-hour pool and waterfall hot tub certainly puts the focus elsewhere. Especially if you consider all the different entertainment options throughout South Beach, it should tell you something when even the locals pay to hang out at The Standard Hotel.
The Delano Hotel is a name-dropping and jaw-dropping haven that is located directly in the heart of South Beach’s party scene. It has one of the most spectacular lobby lounge spaces in the city, the sexiest pool in town, and the Bianca Restaurant terrace. You’ll come across unique objects by Mark Newson, Salvador Dali, and Antonio Gaudi. Especially on Monday nights, you have to go downstairs into the Delano to find the cool speakeasy that is the FDR Lounge.
Fontainbleau: Bouncier, brighter, and bigger than ever, the South Beach buzz surrounding The Fontainebleau is massive. The billion-dollar expansion (you read that right!) spans across 22 acres of golden oceanfront and the hotel has 1,500 newly appointed guest rooms and suites. The top-rated LIV nightclub is included in the hotel, as are 11 different restaurants. There are six pools and La Côte – a French Riviera-style grill. Be aware, the dress code leaves very little to the imagination.
