Amy Adejokun Section editor

We really fell in love with this cosy, charming little hotel and its somewhat outdated tropical feel. The restaurant and its terrace area are a great place to relax in the shade of the nearby trees, whilst the lush little green Art Deco-style garden and pool area have a really fresh feel to them. In a nutshell, an unpretentious hotel but a perfectly pleasant place for a quiet stay in Miami.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The Raleigh is located on Collins Avenue, just a stone's throw away from Ocean Drive. It's a busy neighbourhood with all the shops and restaurants you could need, as well as a mall, all close to hand. The airport is a good few miles away, with a transfer time of around 45 minutes by taxi.

    Accommodation 7.50 /10

    The 105 basic yet functional and clean guest rooms are spread over 8 storeys and feature outdated tropical-style decor, including rattan furniture, a ceiling fan, and curtains with round patterns. The rooms are spacious and quite bright, thanks to both the large windows and the fact that the dominant colour in the decor is white. In terms of amenities, there's nothing you could really fault, with an iPod docking station, air-conditioning, a fan, a phone, a television, a minibar, a safe, free Internet, a hair-dryer, and bathrobes all provided for your comfort and convenience. The bathrooms, meanwhile, come with a beautiful Italian-style shower with a decorative green-tiled wall - a feature which is currently very trendy in home decor. The dominant white of the guest rooms is also present in the bathrooms. The toilets are not separate. The decor of the guest rooms as a whole seems a little less elaborate than that of the rest of the hotel, but it is still perfectly pleasant.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    This hotel is a real little haven of peace, its 1940s building giving it a certain undeniable charm. The elegant colonial-style decor consists of dark parquet flooring, a fan, a series of black and white photos, and lots of wood furnishings. You'll find this outdated tropical ambience is also reflected in the pool area. A small boat-shaped building housing the bar stands overlooking the pool, which is in turn surrounded by little beachfront cabanas affording guests a little privacy. The green surroundings of the pool area make for a real breath of fresh air and are a great place to quietly relax with a book, stretched out on a deckchair or in a hammock. If you like to keep a little more active though, fear not, as there is a gym tucked away in a little cabana not far from the pool. You might be interested to know that whilst there is no spa at the hotel, an in-room massage service is available. Deckchairs are provided on the beach for guests' convenience.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Raleigh serves a menu of primarily American cuisine, but also a variety of French bistro-style dishes in the hotel's only restaurant, the Royal. With a café-bistro ambience, dining under the trees by candlelight, you'd be hard-pushed to find a more romantic setting! There is also a large parquet terrace area sheltered by a huge tree where you can sample the culinary delights of New York chef John Delucie in peace. You'll find various cosy, private little lounge areas dotted around the terrace, as well as a long bar serving a variety of cocktails. If you fancy an aperitif, head for the Martini bar, where an old-fashioned ambience is created by the use of photographs of celebrities on the walls and the many Martini bottles on display. There is another bar in the lobby that serves fresh fruit juices, cappuccino, espresso, tea, and a selection of sweet treats all day long.

      Relaxing in a hammock while listening to the trees swaying in the wind... you can make this small pleasure a reality at the National. Charming and refreshing, this legendary hotel in the Art Deco neighbourhood is a true pleasure for the senses. To be enjoyed without moderation.

      • Value for money 7.12
      • Location 7.0

      The Ritz-Carlton South Beach is one of three Ritz-Carlton hotels in Miami along with Coconut Grove and Key Biscayne. The South Beach hotel is unique in that it is right on Miami Beach. The pool sits on a raised platform that sits just above the beach so that guests get an unobstructed view of the Atlantic. The upsides are the large pool and the DiLido's restaurant, which is the only one of its kind to be so close to the beach. The hotel is an original neo-Art Baroque build that used to be called 'Di Lido' when it was first built back in the 50s. It is perfect for families and there is a 'VIK' program, which stands for 'Very Important Kids', specially put together for various age groups. Due to its central location, right at the heart of the Art Deco district, a five minute walk from the Lincoln pedestrian area and five minutes from Ocean Drive, it is ideal for guests looking for centrally-located good quality accommodation with facilities that are good overall.

      • Value for money 7.15
      • Location 8.0

      This four star art-gallery cum hotel is one of a kind in the world, some say, and should definitely be visited for tea or even just to have a nose around even if you are not staying here. The four-star Sagamore is an original Art-Deco hotel situated right in the heart of South Beach on Miami Beach. Its multi-million dollar art collection makes it what it is as honestly, the rooms could do with a renovation. However if you like to be surprised at every turn, either by a mid-size helicopter on a terrace or video installations leading up to the pool, then this is the place for you.

      • Value for money 7.3
      • Location 6.0

      Cool, sassy and fun, the W South Beach is without doubt one of the highest-profile hotels in Miami and not without good reason. The most impressive aspect of the hotel is its $60 million collection of contemporary art alongside its impressive range of high quality facilities such as its bar, restaurants and pool. It is also located on the beach in a quieter part of SoBe. The hotel is one of the largest in the city and so lacks a little intimacy. A major downer however, is that the rooms severely lack ergonomics and the high quality finish that is expected for the prices charged. Otherwise the gimmicky hotel is fun, young and dynamic and is ideal for a wide-ranging clientele from groups of friends to families and couples.

      The Surfcomber has managed to retain the charm of its Art Deco architecture, but the decor in the guest rooms might leave you puzzled. What we liked most was the swimming pool area, which takes you straight back to the frivolity of the 1950's and 1960's.

      • Value for money 6.64
      • Location 7.7

      The Catalina is a cheap establishment that screams motel rather than hotel. It is not particularly clean or pleasant. It does however have a great location for holidaymakers wanting to be right at the heart of the South Beach action as it sits a 10 minute walk away from the beach on Collins Avenue, the main road running right through Miami. The hotel is an original Art-Deco build that is made up for three separate hotels that sit side by side: the Catalina, the Dorset and Maxine's. Each has its own distinct atmosphere but check-in is done in the central building. The hotel is ideal for guests on a tight budget or who turn up at the last minute without a booking. The hotel is noisy and crowded and is not recommended for children due to some of the guests' behaviour around the pool in the evenings.

      One of Miami's best hotels, The Setai's oriental inspired design sets it apart from other luxury South Beach hotels and makes for a welcome change that is being enjoyed by celebrities across the globe. Sexy, cool, yet discreet, the hotel's unrivalled calm and hushed atmosphere held within its seemingly fortified walls gives the utmost sense of privacy and intimacy. Like no other hotel in Miami, the sophisticated Setai proudly boasts a Leading Hotel of the World label and banks its success on simple, calm and soothing elements throughout, making it a perfect little haven of peace and quiet for guests needing to get away from it all whilst still having access to Miami's buzzing nightlife and beach scene. Although the hotel does welcome families, it is recommended that the children be extremely well-behaved to avoid any steely glares from Miami's high-society.

      Casa Tua is an exclusive sophisticated haven of peace and tranquillity. Located in a quiet South Beach backstreet, it is a short walk away from Collins Avenue and Miami Beach. This five suite 'home away from home' is modelled on a private Italian villa. The aim here is to provide the best possible service to guests requiring nothing but the best. Every aspect of the guest's stay is taken care of, from the pillows they prefer to their favourite flowers. There isn't much in the way of in-house services here, but what there is, is simply fantastic. The restaurant, with seating inside and in the pretty garden has been thought out down to perfection. Casa Tua is perfect for guests with very high accommodation standards and who do not care much for spas, pools, and the like.

      The Versace Mansion has been converted into a small and very exclusive hotel now known as The Villa by Barton G. As you can imagine, there is nothing ordinary about this little haven of peace, quiet, fashion and flamboyancy! True to Mr Versace himself, Barton G has kept his spirit alive by keeping everything as it was with a few minor alterations. You can rent Madonna's suite (the only one with a bath tub) or Elton John's, both of whom were the designer's very close friends. For those of you who can afford it, this is a beautiful hotel to stay at for its stunning pool with 24 carat gold mosaics and meticulous personalised service. A world-famous landmark worth stopping by for a couple of nights.

      • Value for money 7.41
      • Location 5.0

      Without doubt one of our favourite hotels, the very stylish Viceroy Miami has it all with interiors by Kelly Wearstler and a spa designed by Philippe Starck that will wow you over and over again. Although a little bit big to be defined as a boutique hotel, everything has been carefully studied to give the same impact design-wise. Throw in the flawless service, the spacious rooms and the incredible food at the Eos restaurant, the Viceroy Miami runs right into our top three hotels in Miami. The hotel is located Downtown, far from the South Beach hubbub, so it isn't the best choice for those of you looking for a hotel centered around a beach atmosphere, but if you plan on hiring a car, the journey is worth it if what you are looking for is excellence from house-keeping to design. For those of you with young families, the hotel is a lot more child friendly than its quirky design lets on. With the longest roof-top swimming pool in Florida, if not the entire United States, kids will be enthralled for hours.

      Slightly out of place among Ocean Drive's colourful Art-Deco hotels, the upscale ethical and art-loving boutique Betsy (a Small Leading Hotel of the World) is one of our favourite establishments in Miami. Combining colonial cool with contemporary casual, this is the ideal place to stay for a wide-ranging clientele including yummy mummies who thank the bulky doormen with a "Thank you honey-bunny". An attractive hotel that has mastered understated elegance down to a T, has all the facilities you would want on holiday, from a rooftop spa to a renowned steakhouse, a funky chic bar to its very own art collection, the Betsy is one of the more pleasant places to stay in Miami. Located right across from Miami Beach, a stay here is ideal for couples as well as families with a big budget as a stay here does not come cheap.

      This legendary Miami hotel is packed full of history and tales from days gone by. When you see the imposing building, you are taken right back into the past, and you almost expect to see Al Capone and his cronies drinking cocktails at the bar, or even President Franklin Roosevelt drifting past on a gondola along the canals. The Biltmore is a long way from everything, so it is not really the ideal place to stay if you wish to experience the hectic activity of Miami Beach.

Hats off to the artist for this magnificent work of art! It would take just one tiny adjustment to make this a superb hotel - bigger guest rooms.
