The 5 best boutique hotels

1) The Redbury South Beach

This colorful, 69-room sibling to the Los Angeles Redbury packs a lot of personality into its pint-size approach. Guest rooms have lavish touches like 300-thread count Italian linens. The Rooftop Pool and Cleo are both top-tier hangouts.

3) The Betsy - South Beach

A wide veranda and greenery-filled lobby are the perfect introduction to this boutique guest house that invites relaxation. Not only does The Betsy pride itself on superior service, it devotes itself to music, art and literary philanthropy; programming takes place daily. And resident LT Steak & Seafood is mouthwatering. One word: popovers.

4) The Plymouth

This Anton Skislewicz-designed building was among the finest of its Streamline Moderne genre in 1940. The same is true now for the redone rooms that rim Collins Park or overlook the restored Art Deco pool. With inventive Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill on the premises, there’s no need to leave.
