The 5 best boutique hotels in Miami
1) Gale South Beach
An L. Murray Dixon-designed project from the 1940s, this renovation resulted in 87 chic, minimalist rooms that evoke vintage Capri. Perks include rainfall showers in the marble bathrooms, a rooftop pool and deck, and fabulous Italian food in Dolce Restaurant in the lobby.
2) 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 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.

3) Eurostars Langford
One of the few boutique properties located in the heart of downtown, this Beaux Arts building – formerly Miami National Bank – combines august history from 1925 with today’s high technology. Rooftop Bar Bloom Skybar features craft cocktails and attracts a Millennial-to-Gen X scene.
4) Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel
Renovated in 2021, this posh boutique hotel has seen it all, from the time that South Beach was a coconut farm to the days it was Heaven’s Waiting Room. Now the area is hip and trendy, and the Surfcomber is a chic, flower-laden haven where you can retreat from it all at the end of the evening. From personalized spa service to standout pet amenities, the hotel delivers a spot-on experience.
5) Uma House by Yurrban
If this hotel sounds like a song from Fiddler on the Roof, that’s because they offer half of 136 rooms on the ‘Sunrise’ side of the building and the other half on the ‘Sunset’ side. Either way, you’ve got natural beauty on one end of the day. Plenty of little spaces in between include the courtyard and rooftop terraces, a pool and pool deck, and a beach lounge area complete with chairs and umbrellas.
