The National: Art Deco Jewel

Every Hotel of any pedigree on South Beach calls itself stylish in it's advertisements and many of them are stylish - some are only stylish however and have nothing other than style to offer aside from attitude.

The National is a great old South Beach hotel that still tries to do it right ...I wasn't happy with the room I was given and the next night, even though the hotel was officially filled, they found an ocean-front room for the same price.

The public spaces are beautiful but the rooms, at least the ones in $185-200 a night range, were fine but not fabulous.

The pool here is legenday ... it seems to go forever.

The Palms Hotel

A nice place to stay in South beach, clean and well designed rooms, private pool and beach.

Very close to downtown, u can either walk for about 20 minutes or take a cab and it takes only 5 minutes and costs $5.-

they have very funny 2 parrots in the hotel. If those guys are in good mood and not hungry, and if you are lucky, you possibly can chat with them in English.

Riande Continental Hotel in South Beach, Miami

This is a nice hotel on the beach side of Collins Avenue. We paid $89 for our room and got free breakfast with the AAA discount. There is a pool in the back, beach access, and fridges in the rooms and the hotel is in the middle of the action, only four blocks away from the beginning of Ocean Drive where all the restaurants and clubs are. You can walk everywhere from this hotel, even to Nikki Beach. The only downside was that the pool restaurant/bar is excruciatingly slow. We once waited for over half an hour for our check, and had to ask for it four times. Very annoying. Also, the concierge is basically useless. They didn't speak English very well and couldn't help us with any of our questions. We went to the concierge in the Marseilles Hotel, which is much, much more helpful.

Finding a Hotel in South Beach

If you pull up a map of Miami Beach on Mapquest, type in 1500 Collins Ave into the search. The best street to stay on is either Collins Ave or Ocean Drive. If you stay on Ocean, you will be in the nicest area, but will not have beach access because Ocean Drive faces a really long Lummus Park and public beach and only has establishments on the non-beach side of the street, until you get to the very tip, but that area is kind of shady. Collins Ave has hotels that have the ocean as their back yard, but only the ones in the odd numbers. The evens are on the opposite side of the street and all you get is a pool. To be walking distance to Ocean Drive and most of the night clubs on Washington Street, you want to be somewhere between the numbers 1500-1900 on Collins. These numbers are the numbers of actual hotels and buildings. At 1500 Collins Avenue, the street continues on straight, but Ocean Drive cuts in and it becomes the oceanfront street, so if you're staying on Collins at a hotel numbered lower than 1500, you will not have access to the beach, and you might not even be able to see it from your window. There is no more beach access on either side of Collins Ave after the number 1500.

Delano Hotel

Even if you can't affort to pay the $500 a night to stay at the Delano Hotel, go for drinks at their bar. It is absolutely amazing inside, it's like you're in another world. You can't miss the Delano. It's a tall, white hotel, nestled behind a high hedge, with huge white curtains billowing in the breeze. It's right on Collins Ave., and has a sort of Alice in Wonderland feel about it, with it's oversize decour.

BAY HARBOUR ISLAND

My school was in North Miami Beach, hence why I ended in this side of the county. For the few who know this island, it is the best so far. 5 min driving for the beach. 20 min from South beach. Water view, 5 min from Uni, it can't get better.

The Wyndham Biscayne Bay: What Were We Thinking?

Wasn't too impressed with this Hotel. The service was *rather* icky, and the Desk Attendants were aloof and bored. I don't blame them. The building looks like a soon-to-be tear down, since the Doubletree and the Hyatt are right next door (and definately a few stars ahead of the Wyndham). However, I must say, the restaurant at the Wyndham is first rate. They have a key lime pie that makes you wanna cry "Mommie", and a pork tenderloin to give your kids up for. (I had 2 dinners in one night in this place, and amazed even myself...).

The views *were* great though.

clevelander hotel

the clevelander is located on ocean drive in the heart of south beach. it is probably most famous for it's pool bar and nightly entertainment. if you want to be in the center of the activity of south beach this is a great place to stay. if you are looking for luxury and a quiet place to stay this is not for you. a fun, party atmosphere hotel catering to a young clientele.

Clay Hotel: south beach on a budget

A very nice hotel which doubles as a hostel – clean, cheap and in the most perfect location. It’s in the posh south beach area, on the pedestrian Hispaniola way, one block away from the happening Lincoln Avenue and two blocks from Ocean drive and the stunning beaches of Lummus Park.

The main entrance is by the tacky pink flamingo statue... and don't worry if you feel like you've seen it before: you have! It was in the pilot episode of Miami Vice and in the final episode of the first series, too.

The hotel has was built in 1925 and has 170 bedrooms with prices starting from 65 USD for a double room with shared bath, and 75 USD for one with a private bath (standard room). Who chose the latter and found it more than adequate and roomy. Even Al Capone allegedly found it adequate, too.

Crowne Plaza Royal Palm Resort: Best for the money !!!

Located literally next to the Loews Hotel the Crowne Plaza is not a cheap place but not luxurious either.....the rooms are average in size and the balconies are very small.........even though a very large hotel, it has a feel of a small place......this might be the cheapest of the decent hotels in all of South Beach.......great for a family !!!!! But expect to pay around $200 a night.

No on site parking, valet parking only.....but only $13 a day but there is parking garage a block away.
