This bustling Ocean Drive hotel puts you in the center of peak South Beach action
Adjacent to the Versace Mansion, the Victor is every bit as rich and opulent as the designer label itself. Another designer, however, Jacques Garcia (the man behind Paris’s Hôtel Costes), is responsible for beautifully adapting the 1930s into the Victor’s modern structure. He based the interiors on warm beige tones and distinctly accented the lobby with bold ox blood, magenta and emerald furnishings. The mosaic-tiled pool—while small—is similarly striking, as are the spa (with hammam) and Bice Ristorante. Luxurious guest rooms have a touch of boudoir about them, plus infinity bathtubs and huge walk-in showers.
Neighborhood: You are in the heart of South Beach, in all its Art Deco glory. Ocean Drive, one of the most tourist-heavy strips in South Beach—is right out the front door, as is the most popular beach in the city.
Taquiza: Some of the best streetside tacos in Miami Beach
The Wolfsonian: A multi-story museum dedicated to the history of design
Lummus Park: A 74-acre park perfect for a bike, stroll or amazing people-watching
Time Out tip: Be sure to take a stroll down Ocean Drive and soak in the sights and sounds—just keep your wallet in your pocket. Many Ocean Drive establishments (especially those with pushy hostesses advertising giant cocktails) offer low quality at high prices—and have been known to hide big upcharges in the fine print.
