Bars B&B South Beach

711 Lenox Avenue, Miami Beach

Bars B&B South Beach is the ultimate destination for a laid-back yet exciting stay in Miami’s South Beach. This cozy B&B is a perfect blend of comfort and luxury, with funky rooms and a vibe that screams “let loose.” Trust us, you’re going to feel right at home from the moment you arrive. 

Wake up to the smell of Cuban coffee and a complimentary breakfast, then spend your day exploring the nearby beaches, splashing in the waves, or chilling by the pool. And, when the sun sets, that’s when the bar comes to life with great cocktails and live music. Complimentary wine and cheese served daily on the outdoor patio, is where you can meet new people and make new friends. Looking for a little relaxation? There’s an Asian-style garden and Zen gazebo for you to “refresh and renew” after your day of fun in the sun. 

Miami Beach Rooms B&B

630 6Th Street, Miami Beach

Where history and hospitality come together in the heart of the Magic City, the Miami Beach Rooms B&B sits right along the banks of the scenic Miami River. Step inside and discover rooms filled with antique furnishings and modern comforts. Start your morning with a delicious homemade breakfast served on the riverside patio, then stroll along the boardwalk or soak up the sun on the beach that’s just minutes away. And, when you’re ready to unwind after a day of non-stop activity, the courtyard is the perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine. Want some ideas for the best things to do and places to go? The staff knows the city like the back of their hand and is always available to point you in the right direction. 

Selina Miami River Inn

437 SW 2nd Street, Miami

With its unique blend of urban charm and riverside peacefulness, the Selina Miami River Inn is the perfect escape when you’re in the mood for something different. And, by different we mean a step back into Old Florida where you’re surrounded by pastel-colored bungalows, palm trees and greenery. It’s an eclectic space designed to inspire creativity and relaxation. Speaking of relaxation, what better way to get your day going than a yoga session by the river? After breakfast, rent a kayak and paddle through the city’s waterways, or check out Bayfront Park, Bayside Marketplace and Brickell City Centre just two miles away. And when night falls, enjoy live music, a taste of Latin cuisine, and cocktails under the stars, at the Inn’s on-site restaurant.

Island House

1428 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach

Discover why the Island House, where the motto is “you can walk to anything” is one of the best choices for a stay in South Beach. Reasonably priced rooms, studios, and suites, and conveniently located just one block from the beach, the Island House has easy access to all South Beach has to offer. Beaches, restaurants, and popular attractions are all pretty much within walking distance. 

Begin your day with a complimentary continental breakfast, and then borrow a few beach towels or chairs and head to the beach for a day of seaside fun. If shopping is on your to-do list, we suggest the Collins Avenue Shopping Area and Lincoln Road Mall, both are worth the trip. Oh, and don’t miss the beer and wine happy hour on the front porch each afternoon to get your night started on the right foot.

Here, you’re just a 5-minute stroll from the Collins Avenue Shopping Area and Ocean Drive, and a quick 5-minute drive to the Miami Beach Convention Center and Lincoln Road Mall.  In other words, the excitement of South Beach is yours for the taking.  

Hotel Ocean South Beach

1230 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach

Just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Versace Mansion, and right across from the South Beach lifeguard towers, lies your perfect slice of paradise amidst the bars and restaurants of Ocean Drive. At Hotel Ocean South Beach, you’re smack dab in the center of all the action, where the bright lights, sunny days, and non-stop excitement await.

Complimentary bike rentals are at your disposal, and a short stroll takes you to Hotel Victor where you can dive into their pool for a refreshing dip. 

And when it’s time for dinner, look no further than Il Giardino, located at the front of Hotel Ocean, where you can feast on delicious Italian fare while taking in the sights and sounds of Ocean Drive. It’s the ultimate spot for people-watching – and trust us, you’re never at a loss for things to see as you watch the sights go by. 

The New Yorker Miami

The New Yorker Miami is a charming two-story art deco hotel with 50 guest rooms, 2 spacious suites, a beautiful patio, inspirational art installations, and an amazing pool. It’s your invitation into the MiMo District, (Miami Modern style) known for its unique architecture of retro motels and co-working spaces along Biscayne Boulevard’s northern corridor. Beyond the neighborhood lies a mix of residential areas, local eateries, and underground culture in Upper East Side Miami and Morning side.
