Fresh Florida fun, a stroll from SoBe’s sands
This South Beach boutique hotel attracts hip, easygoing guests with a sense of fun. Few cities are more diverse and cosmopolitan than Miami, and even fewer can boast white-sand beaches and endless days of perfect sunshine too. With its fresh decorative mix of minimalist white spaces and bold red statement pieces, the Townhouse offers a clean-lined backdrop for stretched-out lounging, snacking on sushi and sipping cool cocktails. There's no pool, but you can sunbathe on the decked rooftop or walk the 50 yards to the beach. If you look the part, you can use the pool at the Raleigh too.
Wow factor Bond Street becomes a buzzing bar later in the evening; we recommend the saké Bloody Marys. The Rooftop lounge is also very cool, with hip parties on Fridays and Saturdays—a see-and-be-seener on the SoBe.
Rates $115–$500, including continental breakfast; it can be more when there are major events (such as the Miami Music Festival or Super Bowl).
