Hotel Breakwater:Art Deco Elegance Beachside

What Do I Need to Know About Hotel Breakwater?

Miami’s Hotel Breakwater is an art deco icon, and one of the city’s greatest historic treasures. The boutique property is located on the famous Ocean Drive, in the heart of South Beach. If you want to be close to the action, Hotel Breakwater is in the center of it all.

This boutique hotel embraces the modern, while incorporating nods to its past. Rooms manage to be bright, cheerful, and luxurious; while still remaining affordable. A plunge pool, rooftop terrace, and a concierge that will take care of anything and everything, separate the property from the competition.

What’s the Area Like?

Right on the corner of Ocean Drive and 10th Street, Hotel Breakwater is ideal for travellers hoping to make the best of the area’s phenomenal nightlife and entertainment. History and architecture lovers will be pleased to find the Art Deco Welcome Center directly across the street. The area surrounding Hotel Breakwater Miami is laid-back, diverse, and is the best place in the city to see and be seen.

If you want to experience the nightlife of Miami without leaving the property, Hotel Breakwater’s on-site restaurant ‘Ocean’s Ten’ features live music every night of the week and is popular with visitors and locals alike.

What are the Rates?

Rooms at Hotel Breakwater start from $300 a night for a standard room. For Ocean Front Rooms and Suites, rates start at $400 a night. While there are cheaper properties in the area, the service and all-around luxury of Hotel Breakwater are good value for the money.

What’s the Bottom Line?

If you are looking for quiet and relaxation, this may not be the best area for you. But if you love the nightlife, expect a high level of service and ammenities, and want good value for your money, Hotel Breakwater is as good as it gets in South Beach.

Expert Reviews
This celebrated 1939 Art Deco beachfront hotel offers views of the Atlantic Ocean and the most famous stretch of South Beach shoreline.
Travel + Leisure
The Breakwater Hotel, a 1936 Art Deco gem, is once again ready for prime time, thanks to a radical renovation that included the addition of the former Edison Hotel next door.
Lonely Planet
A towering blue marquee offset by a stylistically geometric deco facade advertises the Breakwater to all of Ocean Dr. The breezy pool is a good spot to hang before retiring to rooms...
