The iconic Raleigh Hotel is an Art Deco classic in South Beach. A vintage motif, which begins in the lobby, continues throughout the hotel's restaurants and funky rooms, decorated with retro light fixtures and bright curtains. The hotel's sexy pool, surrounded by vintage-style lounge chairs and umbrellas, became a Miami landmark when former swimmer and movie star Esther Williams leapt from its waterfall diving board in a sequined bathing cap. The Pelican's 30 rooms each have a unique theme, decorated with wacky colored paint and trinkets found in Florida's antique sales by designer Magnus Ehrland, who now works as creative director for the Swedish men's clothing company J. Lindberg. Best Whorehouse, Born in the Stars and Stripes, and Bang a Boomerang are among the playful names, boldly spelled out on each door. The hotel may not have its own pool, but the large penthouse suite features a massive sundeck complete with ocean views, cozy lounge chairs, and a Jacuzzi. A self-proclaimed "art hotel," the beachside Sagamore boasts an impressive private collection of paintings, sculptures, photography, and even video art. The sleek, all-white lobby is accented by bright paintings and murals. Though there are no poolside cabanas at the hotel's zero-entry pool, garden cabanas line the garden between the hotel and pool, and feature flat-screen televisions and large lounge areas. The hotel's spa may be small with only a couple of treatment rooms, but it does feature an outdoor massage table with an ocean view. The blissfully remote, adults-only (14+) Standard is about a mile from the beach, but it's still passionately hip. It creates a low-key holistic haven by way of vintage furniture, outdoor bathtubs, a 24-hour pool, yoga retreats, and a world-famous spa. Though rooms are simple, they have a decidedly beachy vibe that fits in well with the Standard's Belle Island location. Plus, you'll spend little time in your room considering the hotel's party scene: A lounging crowd of 20-somethings sip cocktails and play bingo. There are also weekly party nights and a coed sauna. Built in 1926, the iconic Biltmore (a national landmark) brings timeless luxury to a hotel scene overwhelmed by skin-deep glitz. Upon entering the hotel, guests are wowed by the dimly-lit lobby with its soaring, vaulted ceilings and carved pillars. The classic look extends to the spacious rooms and even to the elaborate pool (the largest in the continental U.S.), surrounded by columns and Greek-like sculptures. The hotel also offers a long list of amenities including a prestigious golf course and a fabulous restaurant with an extensive wine list. Located on Brickell Key, the Mandarin is a sleek, stunning option in Miami. The massive lobby impresses with high ceilings, wood-paneled walls, bright artwork, and plenty of funky furniture. The modern look of the hotel extends from the lobby to the spa to the restaurants. Azul features lattice-work walls and water treatments to create a tranquil vibe while Cafe Sambal takes advantage of the hotel's water views with outdoor seating set against the backdrop of the building's cool copper wall.
