One of South Beach’s trophy boutique hotels, the Delano South Beach Hotel is truly a one-stop shop for Miami partying.

Fontainebleau Miami Beach
Ok, so I’ve cheated a teensy bit here as this hotel is located on Miami Beach proper (just a tad north of South Beach), but the Fontainebleau Miami Beach is one of the most significant and well-known hotels in America let alone Miami, earning its place on this list.
The Fontainebleau has two towers containing 1,504 rooms and also features 12 restaurants and bars and a whopping 40,000 square foot spa!
And that's it! Our guide to South Beach's best hotels to make the most of your stay.
