The Villa By Barton G.

Opulence, thy name is The Villa by Barton G. This marble-drenched luxury hotel, restaurant and event space is set in the former Versace mansion, and offers such perks as personal butler service, double-headed showers and Kindle e-readers so you can brush up on your Hamlet.


Miami, Florida


It's official. You're one of the cool kids. It happened when you checked into the Delano, a beachfront classic, in the heart of Miami's Art Deco District. Boldly invigorated by Modernist designer Philippe Starck, the hotel has a whimsical indoor/outdoor lobby, adorned with jazzy accoutrements --such as a chair by Salvador Dali. Locals love the Rose Bar, though it's the cabana-lined pool, known as the Delano Beach Club, that channels South Beach's fabled hedonism best.   

W South Beach

Miami is one of the only places where things heat up as the sun goes down. But no matter the time of day, the Grove at the W keeps things fanciful with meals set to soothing music, charming lily pad ponds and romantic poetry scattered throughout the lush garden-lounge.

Art Deco District

If you’re looking to get a true South Beach experience, look no further than the Avalon Hotel on Ocean Drive, in the heart of Miami’s Art Deco district. Start the day off right with the Avalon’s complimentary breakfast buffet before exploring the city’s bustling street cafes and famous beaches. But make sure to get back for dinner when the Avalon’s lobby and terrace transforms into A Fish Called Avalon, a tropical seafood grille -- grab a street-side table for some serious people watching.

The James Royal Palm

Miami is pure seduction. Indulge in instant gratification with a stay at the James Royal Palm on Collins Avenue. The hotel’s towering Art Deco building oozes classic glamour with its mid-century decor, while the amenities are nothing less than extravagant. Dine in their celebrated oceanfront restaurant, or dress to impress for a romp around South Beach. Whether ordering cocktails shoreside, or people watching upon chaise lounges poolside, the opulence is overwhelming. But in Miami, we’d expect nothing less.
