South Beach Vacations - Best Hotels for Miami South Beach Vacations - The Palms Hotel & Spa, The Setai, Hotel Victor

suites art luxury deco

If you are planning a trip to South Florida, there is no better vacation destination, than the one that is most popular – South Beach. This 23 block stretch of beach and intracoastal island is known for star attraction, Art Deco architecture, hip hotels, and trendy restaurants, and upscale shopping along Lincoln Road. It is amusing to think that just thirty years ago, South Beach was bizarre mixture of retirement community, mobster haven, and Cuban barrio. In the 1980s, the fashion industry entered the scene and slowly morphed it into the tourist hotspot it is today.

South Beach vacations can be tailored for relaxation or excitement. The area has something to offer for everyone, and you will have a choice of literally hundreds of hotels. South Beach is known for its small boutique hotels scattered throughout the area and for a couple of big name resorts, as well. Although options seem virtually unlimited, if you are a first-time visitor, you can do yourself well by going with one of these three choices of hotels for South Beach vacations:
