Loews Miami Beach

Loews boasts one of the most recognizable façades of all of the hotels in South Beach — Miami Beach's oceanfront lineup of luxury resorts just wouldn't be the same without it. Rooms at the hotel offer every modern convenience — iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, complimentary WiFi and coffeemakers. Relax at the Day Spa or at the outdoor pool, or head to one of two on-site bars to splurge on the area's notoriously overpriced cocktails.

Royal Palm South Beach

Even those who haven't yet had the chance to stay at a South Beach hotel have heard of the Royal Palm South Beach Miami. This Art Deco gem is awash in white, decadent flair — but that's probably not why it has garnered a 4-star rating from the TripAdvisor community. Rather, travelers fancy the property's abstract interior, its excellent beach service, its impeccable rooms and the overall pampering they received.

Clevelander South Beach Hotel

Featuring comfortable rooms decked out in bright colors, the Beacon Hotel welcomes travelers with an enviable location across from Lummus Beach Park, the most popular beachfront stretch on the barrier island.
