The Loews Miami Beach Hotel is right on the beach. Another five-star hotel in South Beach, the Loews, with 790 rooms and 52 suites is larger than the Ritz. The hotel has three eateries. There’s an ice cream parlor, perfect for cool sweet treats on hot days. Sushi lovers would appreciate the hotel’s Sushi SoBe restaurant and there’s even more seafood available at Loews’ Lure Fishbar.

The Delano South Beach has one of the most impressive outdoor spaces in Miami. The glamorous poolside is the perfect place to take plenty of selfies or group shots to post to your social networks. The five star Delano has its own sushi and sake bar, spa, and club (the FDR). There are plenty of room choices at the Delano. Lofts, penthouse suites, bungalows, and apartments are a few examples of the accommodations available at the Delano. There are ocean view rooms at the Delano as well.

Although it is not listed as a five-star hotel, the W Hotel in South Beach has luxurious amenities like a basketball court and tennis court on the roof. A W staff member can set guests up on the beach. These ambassadors, as W refers to them, will open that pesky umbrella and have your picnic lunch ready. They will even provide a frozen blanket and an eye mask to cool you off. Inside the hotel the rooms at the W are spacious. The smallest guest room at the W is about 574 square feet, and some of the suites have washers and dryers.

With a location just steps away from the beach, the Crowne Plaza South Beach, also called the Z Ocean Hotel is yet another top choice of Miami Beach hotels in South Beach. Guests have remarked (happily) about the large jetted showers, the friendly staff and spacious rooms at this four star hotel. The Crowne Plaza provides guests with access to the beach, and it’s so close that guests can be on South Beach in just a few minutes. The beach is less than a five minute walk for Crowne Plaza’s guests.
