Historic Hotels in Miami Beach

Miami Beach is known for its white sandy beaches, crystal blue waters, and world-class nightlife. Thus, most tourists conjure up images of resorts that sprawl the ocean or luxury high-rises built to indulge the swanky jetsetter clientele. But there’s another side to Miami lodging that shouldn’t be overlooked: historic Art Deco hotels.
