Miami is famous for having one of the most exciting and sexiest cultures in the United States with its array of beaches, nightclubs and top-notch restaurants. Nonetheless, getting the right hotel is essential in making a fun getaway a sizzling adventure that you won’t forget. We’ve gathered a list of eight hotels that have all the right ingredients for making your escape the kind that you’ll make your friends and family jealous. Here's why we love these awesome locations and what makes them our favorite:

Eden Roc Miami

The multiple award-winning Eden Roc Miami—which includes a current four-year streak of receiving the AAA Four Diamond Award—is, in look and spirit, quintessentially Miami. Large, bold tiling graces the floors, neon pink lighting splays across the walls, and white furniture is everywhere. For a truly immersive Miami-esque experience, Eden Roc Miami is exactly where you want to stay.  

Lord Balfour

A block away from the beach and situated right by numerous bars, restaurants and clubs, Lord Balfour's lack of onsite food and pool is hardly missed. The hotel is bright with bold pops of blues and yellows decorating its interiors and exteriors. Guestrooms are eclectic with a fashionably modern aesthetic and portraits of photographer Justice Howard’s tattooed beauties decorate the walls over the beds.

W South Beach

Situated mere steps away from the lapping Atlantic in Miami Beach, W South Beach offers three onsite bars that are a great way to kick off a night around town. Along with the soft, sandy beach and remarkable ocean views, W South Beach also comes with W Hotels' WHATEVER/WHENEVER® Service where staff will deliver or make anything happen for guests (as long as it's legal); which could lead to some seriously thrilling adventures. 

Mondrian South Beach

The whole of Mondrian South Beach is an artistic experience that combines contemporary comfort, amenities and artistic choices detailed by intricately detailed wallpapers, die cut accenting, metallic touches and bright reflective surfaces. Mondrian stands out by offering up Biscayne Bay views in spacious, luxurious condos for comfortable living and having a real home base to throw your own events and keep the party going as long as you want.

Delano took luxury hotel living and mixed it with a number of unique, seemingly fantastical elements that make the property feel like a veritable wonderland for guests to explore to their imaginations' content. The two bars at Delano, Rose Bar and FDR at Delano, offer up entertaining atmosphere through wildly different décor. Rose Bar is adorned with rich woods, flowing fabrics and bronze accenting while FDR at Delano has clean lines, blue and gold lighting and internationally renowned music acts and DJ’s to get the party started.

The Setai

With some of the best meals available in Miami, The Setai is the ideal hotspot for those who embrace food and drink as a true pleasure in life. This is highlighted through The Setai Grill's tasting menu, which offers guests a six-course prix-fixe option with items such as lobster, unagi, oysters and beef short ribs. Likewise, it doesn't hurt that the hotel itself is highly regarded amongst travelers and critics alike and has earned near-unanimous praise across the board.

Acqualina Resort & Spa

Acqualina Resort & Spa is all about achieving maximum relaxation. With 4.5 acres of beachfront property and all the onsite amenities you'd ever want to just go on a four-day binge of restful leisure like palm tree-supported hammocks and a world class spa. Acqualina is where you want to go when you really need to get away from it all.

The James Royal Palm

Like Acqualina, The James Royal Palm is heavily invested in offering its guests a relaxing vacation away from the rigors of one's daily life. All rooms come with city or ocean views, floor-to-ceiling windows and some with balconies. Also, their restaurant CATCH Miami is helmed by Top Chef winner Hung Huynh so it’s bound to have some delicious dishes waiting for you.
