Miami is known for its sun-kissed beaches, vibrant culture and vibrant nightlife.

There are a tonne There’s a wide range of hotels in Miami, whether you’re looking for an upscale beach experience (after NYC, Miami has more five-star hotels than any other city in the country) or an affordable hotel that won’t cost you anything Leg.

I’ve been coming to the city for years and have stayed in many different hotels. To help you plan your visit, here is my list of the best hotels in Miami:

There are both rooms and full apartments (called “pads”) to choose from, and both feature adjustable SmartBeds, wireless charging stations, desks, and spacious bathrooms with rainfall showers.

Hotel amenities include a rooftop swimming pool and cocktail bar, a hot tub, a 24-hour fitness center with Peloton bikes, co-working spaces, and a restaurant that serves à la carte breakfast.
