A short walk from the beach, in the Art Deco District
Dream South Beach is in the Art Deco District, which is comprised of three long streets lined by historic buildings with quirky, geometric architecture. The beach is less than a one-minute walk from the hotel.
Quaint, neon-lit South Beach (or "SoBe") might be the sexiest beach town in America, with modeling agencies flanking a broad topless beach. People watching is the draw, especially in Ocean Drive's historic Art Deco District, which is packed with outdoor bars, cafes, flashy cars, Rollerbladers, rainbow flags, and plenty of fake-boob bikini bodies. Chic clubs with especially discerning bouncers draw the fashion-industry elite, the occasional celebrity, and plenty of 20-somethings ready to party.
Literally a one-minute walk from the beach, this trendy boutique hotel -- like many others in the area -- caters to young, hip partiers. The lobby is decorated with a sleek black-and-white motif, the rooftop pool and bar are hopping late into the night, and house music plays throughout the property. The pool is tiny and the sexy see-through bathrooms aren't particularly kid-friendly, so families may want to consider the nearby Loews Miami Beach.
