Oh, where to start with the Redbury? Perhaps with one of the 69 rooms—each rich with bohemian personality and lovely touches such as a record player (with some Capitol Records-curated vinyl) and marble bathrooms. And then, of course, there’s the 12,000 square foot rooftop pool, a chill paradise so cute you may never want to leave. Oh, and don’t forget the location, which puts you within walking distance of the beach (duh), Lincoln Road, the Fillmore, the Bass Museum and so much more.
Miami boutique hotels are perfect for those who feel a bit overwhelmed by the average Miami hotel. We get it: a small army of smiling employees at the concierge, long hallways straight out of The Shining, elevators that make your ears pop—it can be a bit much. That’s where the best Miami boutique hotels come in. These trendy, yet intimate lodgings (generally with 100 rooms or less) feel more like staying among friends than being a prisoner in a really, really nice prison. They are cozier and allows for more genuine human interactions. And it doesn’t hurt that these boutique properties put you within walking distance of the best Miami beaches, the best restaurants in Miami and the absolute best of Miami nightlife.
