The Hotel has all the right style-mag credentials: it was designed in 1939 by architect L Murray Dixon, and redecorated by clothing designer Todd Oldham in 1998. Formerly known as the Tiffany, it was forced to change its name by the litigious jewellery giant. But it's still one of the coolest joints on South Beach - and still au courant. The mosaic-tiled bathrooms and tie-dye robes lend a whimsical feel to the small but avant-garde rooms. The cosy lobby shows off with polished terrazzo floors and couches upholstered in emerald, gold and ruby velvet. The couture touches extend to stellar house restaurant Wish. The octagonal rooftop pool and Spire Bar afford spectacular beach views.
