City hotels, Miami
For style-savvy weekend holidaymakers, these city hotels are ideal for urban breaks. Head to capital cities for culture and cuisine, and smaller town hubs for trips off the regular tourist’s itinerary. Skyscrapers beat suncastles at these luxury B&Bs, townhouses and street-side stays… all with a typical dose of Smith cool.
You can almost taste the air of old-world Miami-glam as you float up the steps through the grand art deco entrance of King & Grove Tides – it’s the kind of boutique hotel you’d expect to find Marilyn Monroe resting her perfectly coiffed tresses while the Rat Pack slug martinis in the lobby bar. All suites have ocean views, but floors five and up offer less ocean drive action and more ocean. Our top pick is room 601, a corner suite that has north- and east-facing windows overlooking palm trees and twinkling ocean.
