Most romantic hotels in Miami

The Miami Beach EDITION

Miami Beach
5 out of 5 stars

You’ll find everything you need for a love-soaked weekend right here in one marble accented palace. Eat, drink, party and sleep (at least a little bit) without leaving the hotel.

Time Out tip: EDITION hotel has two separate pools, but we’re fans of the landmark Sundial Pool, part of the original property. The towering, Art Deco diving board from the 1950s has also been preserved and is now flanked by rows of loungers and the pool’s namesake bar.

St. Regis Bal Harbour

Bal Harbour
5 out of 5 stars

This luxury hotel chain is synonymous with stellar service and plush accommodations. In Miami, it also boasts a prime waterfront location.

Time Out tip: Though far away from the Downtown museum hub, the St. Regis’s art collection rivals that of any cultural institution. On-site Rosenbaum Contemporary features rotating exhibits, which have included works by Fernando Botero and Robert Indiana of the famous LOVE sculpture, while the hotel’s restaurants and grounds also serve as exhibition space.

Mandarin Oriental, Miami

Brickell Key
5 out of 5 stars

Neatly concealed on it's own island, away from any prying eyes, the Mandarin Oriental takes cues from the paradisal tropics to bring some playful allure to Miami.

Time Out tip: One of the city’s best brunches is just downstairs at La Mar. You’ll want to wear more than your bathrobe (it’s also one of the city’s nicer restaurants) and bring your biggest appetite for the all-you-can-eat extravaganza that concludes with an adorable artisanal dollhouse stuffed with desserts.

Faena Hotel Miami Beach

Miami Beach
5 out of 5 stars

The luxurious hotel from Argentine hotelier Alan Faena is a sensory experience, dripping in red and decked in art from around the world

Time Out tip: The Faena may very well drain your bank account but the Faena Forum across the street will save you from social ruin. Pop in every second Sunday of the month for free rollerskating on the property’s kaleidoscopic rink, a site-specific art piece that debuted during Art Basel 2017. Live DJs and performers make it feel like a fast-moving dance party.

Setai

South Beach
5 out of 5 stars

Though unequivocally glamorous, the understated resort is a peaceful sanctuary in the center of South Beach—close to everything yet sheltered from crowds.

Time Out tip: The Bass, Miami Beach’s premier space for contemporary art, hosts a number of cultural events and features colorful site-specific works just outside its grounds. Admission is free on the last Sunday of the month.

Standard Spa, Miami Beach

Belle Isle
4 out of 5 stars

Warm and glowing yet ever-so-chilled, the effortlessly cool Standard Spa is a world away from some of the other hotels that you'll come across on South Beach. The understated surroundings are joined with waterfront options too, so you can get wet and wild with your partner.

Time Out tip: On the last Sunday of each month, scenesters gather for Not Your Standard Bingo: a totally free game night led by the colorful Pussila with the always fun DJ Jody McDonald. Arrive early to get a good seat and a playing card, and prepare to yell if you’ve won—prizes include a free night stay at the hotel.

Biltmore Hotel

Coral Gables
4 out of 5 stars

Immersed in culture and history, the Coral Gables hotel is as elegant and comprehensive as they come, and you can golf, dine, drink and relax without ever leaving.

Time Out tip: It’s pinkies up at the Biltmore’s traditional afternoon tea service (Wed–Thu at 2pm, 3:30pm; $45), complete with tiny sandwiches, fresh-baked scones and live harp music. It’s not at all stuffy and quite enjoyable as a follow-up to a treatment at the hotel’s spa.

El Paseo Hotel

South Beach
4 out of 5 stars

Old Spanish charm and many eclectic offerings within walking distance make a stay at the quaint property feel like a mini European getaway

Time Out tip: Feeling overwhelmed by the commotion of Española Way? Head a mile northwest to the neighborhood of Sunset Harbor. It’s a lazier (and fancier) chunk of Miami Beach perfect for chilling, drinking and eating.

Mayfair Hotel and Spa

Coconut Grove
4 out of 5 stars

A rooftop pool and a lush, open courtyard make this laid-back property in the heart of hippie Coconut Grove the ideal place to unwind.

Time Out tip: Coconut Grove hosts Fashion + Art + Music + Night on the first Saturday of each month. Expect free live music on the streets, gallery exhibitions (and free wine) and pop-up fashion markets throughout the colorful neighborhood.

The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne

Key Biscayne
4 out of 5 stars

A luxury hotel chain that delivers on service and amenities, plus boasts a gorgeous waterfront area for sunbathing, eating and drinking.

Time Out tip: The brunch at Rusty Pelican is unmatched in terms of views and service. It’s more of a family-friendly crowd but equally enjoyable for couples.
