This 42-room boutique hotel has mastered the art of feng shui without forcing it on guests. The bamboo floors and amber lighting relax and refresh, while serene rooms with low, Japanese-style beds are designed simply for a good night's sleep. The hospitality, too, is reserved yet attentive. Lightly publicised but heavily consumed, the free cocktail hour fills the lobby with guests every night. While the name doesn't fit the space, the Chelsea is arguably the best little Asian-inspired hotel on the beach. Note, like the other South Beach Group Hotels, it offers free airport pick-up.
