Glamour is the daily special at these carefully-selected Miami hotels. You’ll find nail-clippered golf greens, private Atlantic beaches, paradisiacal spas, and hotels so brand-conscious that even their coconuts are labelled. Find out where to stay in Miami with our guide to the hotels that are totally worth the tan lines.

For namedropping: Fontainebleau

One of the biggest and most famous hotels in Miami, Fontainebleau likes to boast its celebrity connections and throw big, lavish parties. If Fontainebleau was a person, she would be the friend who knows everybody.

El detalle: Este moderno hotel es un bastión de South Beach. Sus ocho restaurantes ofrecen comida fabulosa, como por ejemplo el Stripsteak, el restaurante de carne de Michael Mina, que cuenta con varios productos cárnicos en su carta preparados en barbacoa de leña. Las instalaciones son también innumerables, y maravillosas para los niños.

Recuerde tiempos pasados bajo las lámparas de araña diseñadas por Ai Wei Wei de los pasillos que una vez pisó Frank Sinatra, y en una discoteca en la que tal vez vea a alguna de las hermanas Jenner.

In a city where people get dressed up just to go to the mall, there’s no show in the world quite like a night out in Miami. Swanky nights out end up at LIV, the Fontainebleau’s over-the-top night club. To start your evening a little earlier, dress up for a drink at Bleau Bar.

Consejo de experto: La zona destinada al alojamiento se sitúa en cuatro torres. Si usted va a disfrutar de la fiesta, reserve su estancia en la torre Chateau.

Por su increíble zona subterránea: The Miami Beach EDITION

The largest beachfront in the city belongs to the Miami Beach EDITION. Sunning its fine self on trendy Mid-Beach, the hotel has its own ice rink and bowling alley downstairs.

El detalle: Como si de un monolito de color perla frente a la playa se tratase, el Miami Beach EDITION todavía conserva algunas de sus características originales de los años 50, como las columnas de oro del vestíbulo y el elevado reloj solar blanco de los jardines. No obstante, el resto es supermoderno. Póngase cómodo en una silla de la zona de comedor del restaurante Matador o hunda los pies en la arena de la parte exterior del hotel y disfrute de una buena película bajo las estrellas. La piscina y la zona de playa son muy soleadas, pero la parte de abajo es otra historia. La especial zona subterránea del hotel está equipada con cuatro boleras, una nueva pista de patinaje sobre hielo y una discoteca boutique.

Insider tip: When your brand becomes synonymous with glamour, you’d be a fool not to trade on it: Miami Beach EDITION is scented throughout by its own signature perfume. You can buy it from the on-site boutique.

For art addicts: Faena

It’s all a matter of taste. Ridiculous extravagance litters the Faena hotel. While some may adore it, others will raise their eyebrows at the Damien Hirst woolly mammoth skeleton in the garden and flayed unicorn statue in the restaurant. Whatever, Faena is still one of the best hotels in Miami.

El detalle: Este impresionante resort con toques artísticos y snob se sitúa en el nuevo distrito de Faena, en Mid-Beach. Tras la reciente remodelación del hotel encontramos grandes nombres: el director de cine Baz Luhrmann y la diseñadora de vestuario Catherine Martin ayudaron a perfeccionar la estética del hotel: bonitas sombrillas a rayas como las de un caramelo en la zona del piscina, pufs con estampado animal y paredes que parecen arrecifes de coral revividos. Los Fuegos, impresionante restaurante argentino, le servirá toneladas de chimichurri con sus filetes.

Los amantes de la cultura se sentirán como en el cielo: hay un teatro cabaret, libros sobre arte en el atrio, tardes de manualidades e instalaciones envolventes. A pesar de lo llamativo que es, este hotel de primera categoría recibe a clientes famosos con la más absoluta discreción.

Insider tip: Make use of your butler – there’s one on every floor.

    ¿Sabía que...?

    Nobu Matsuhisa creó este plato de autor cuando un cliente le envió de vuelta el plato de sashimi bajo el pretexto de que estaba crudo. Nobu puso aceite caliente en el plato para cocer el pescado y así fue como nació el "New Style Sashimi".

For golf and grandeur: The Biltmore

This grand old golfing hotel houses a great set of restaurants, including French cuisine in Palme d'Or.

The lowdown: The 1926 Biltmore hotel resembles something between an Art Deco rocket ship and a wedding cake, with a dramatic central tower and charming, old-fashioned interiors. It’s classic, rather than hip, with fantastic facilities, not least its Olympic-sized 600,000 gallon swimming pool lined with Greek statues. The Biltmore is firstly a golfing hotel, taking great pride in its restored 18-hole championship golf course. But the two old-school fine-dining restaurants are nothing to scoff at. The rooms are similarly timeless. For more space, you can book one of the hotel’s many suites.

Encontrará The Biltmore en un rincón tranquilo de Miami, por la zona de la playa de Coral Gables. Si se encuentra por esta pudiente zona de Miami, visite otra joya de los años 20: la Piscina Veneciana y el jardín botánico Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.

Insider tip: Look out for La Fôret Noire on the tasting menu at the Palme D’Or restaurant, a fantastical chocolate ‘tree’ topped by a blossom of pink spun sugar.

For the spa: The Carillon

One of the healthiest 5 star hotels in Miami, The Carillon is a huge wellness resort.

The lowdown: If you’ve come on holiday with wellness goals, you’ll find all your needs met (and the juice bars fruitful) at The Carillon. It operates South Florida’s largest spa and pumps out over forty fitness classes every day. Your wellbeing will be taken as seriously as you want to it be: there’s even an on-site consultant for ‘healthy aging’. But there’s no pressure: no one has a problem with you destroying the breakfast buffet and lying under a massive hat by the pool all day.

The Carillon boasts extensive facilities, loads of things to children occupied, and an impressively realistic indoor climbing wall. The rooms are enormous, too – a minimum of 65 square metres each. If you’re partial to busting out a sun salutation as soon as you jump out of bed, you’ll have plenty of space to do so.

Insider tip: Set in a residential, well-to-do area of North Beach, there are lots of nice shops and eateries scattered around the side roads.

For the menu: Nobu

Famous Nobu Miami is known for its restaurant, but the surrounding hotel is just as appetising.

The lowdown: It’s not often you get a restaurant so famous that it has its own hotel. Nobu, by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa started as a Japanese restaurant in the hippest district of NYC back in the nineties. Several restaurants and Michelin stars later, it has opened a series of hotels that epitomise Japanese elegance – each with their own Nobu restaurant. Whilst Miami is about as far from Japan as you can get, the hotel styles itself as a Japanese beach house. You’ll find a lot of sparse, wooden spaces and angular architecture, and a chic private pool area. A few Miami theatricals creep in: a glass of fizz on check-in, frozen grapes by the pool, cloud-soft beds, wraparound balconies outside some of the suites, and brunch delivered to your room.

Nobu is a ‘hotel within a hotel’ – as it’s part of the Eden Roc hotel complex. You can use the Eden Roc facilities, including three extra pools and a spa.

Insider tip: Look out for the roaming drinks trolley. You can request a complimentary cocktail made exactly to your taste.

    Totally tropical

    A thick planting of bourgainvillae, plumbago and palms make The Palms Resort & Spa a leafy paradise. The hotel has direct access to Miami Boardwalk.

For family holidays: Turnberry Isle

For golfers, this huge hotel has got everything going for it, especially if you’re bringing the family. Alongside the two championship golf courses, a wealth of facilities will entertain everybody.

The lowdown: Families might not need to spend all their time in the centre of Miami. Set in the quieter area of town, up in Aventura, the enormous Turnberry Isle resort offers the complete holiday experience. You can easily access Aventura Mall just across from the hotel, or laze sunny days away at the Turnberry Isle Beach Club. To indulge in a meat feast or a weekday happy hour cocktail, visit BOURBON STEAK – the resort’s much-touted Michael Mina-owned restaurant.

Kids will love the lazy river and the twisting, turning water slide into the pool; adults will prefer the two quieter pools. A retreat into the serene Ame spa may tempt parents never to resurface…

Insider tip: The Corsair Kitchen and Bar serves an extraordinary Bloody Mary at brunch with skewers of goodies perched above the glass.

For location: Victor

Set in the centre of the action on Ocean Drive (it’s next to the Versace mansion), boutique Hotel Victor offers very good rates, given its five-star status.

The lowdown: One of the enviable South Beach Miami hotels, Hotel Victor’s chic, grey-toned rooms act as a palette cleanser after an Ocean Drive happy hour. To celebrate its opening night the PR team placed penguins in the small, pretty pool. Nowadays, you’ll find the pool area quiet, and lined with cabanas.

The hotel’s handy bike rental means you can don your kaftan, cut through the crowds outside the Casa Casuarina, and billow down the boardwalk. Later, enjoy Pinkberry Ocean Drive, Hotel Victor’s froyo parlour. Pomegranate flavour is sure to please.

Insider tip: Ask for a room away from the street, as this neighbourhood can get quite lively. All rooms have at least a partial view of the ocean.

For good southern manners: The Palms Resort & Spa

This relaxed, family-run hotel hosts two resident parrots. Find it in the Faena District, Miami Beach.

The lowdown: For those who like their elegance as laid-back as it comes, The Palms Resort is a welcoming, easy-to-love four-star hotel. The décor is Old Floridian (palm-thatched cabanas in the garden), with a dollop of Miami glitz on the top (a stunning lobby chandelier). The on-site restaurant, Essensia, champions the slow-food movement. It uses the hotel’s garden to source its fruits and herbs and serves a colourful Sunday brunch. Enjoy the hotels green spaces for yourself by joining a Vinyasa yoga class in the gardens.

Insider tip: The spa has a well-stocked Aveda shop on site if you want to treat yourself to some all-natural beauty products.

For romantics: The Plymouth

Two blocks back from South Beach, boutique hotel The Plymouth is set in an interesting late-Art Deco building. The sushi restaurant is worth staying in for.

The lowdown: Elbows out – there are just 110 guestrooms available at The Plymouth. True to its dramatic 1920s exterior, the interiors are just the right side of vintage kitsch, from the bamboo bar to the stripy sun loungers and Art Deco pool. Guest rooms look like they’re straight out of a sophisticated beach house. All in all, this hotel is a quiet, romantic hideaway.

The Plymouth might not be beachfront, but don’t despair: the hotel has its own private beach area just a short walk away.

Insider tip: The famous American chain, Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill has an outpost on-site. It’s perfect for couples who want to feed each other with chopsticks. Order the signature Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken with wasabi honey on the side.
