The James Royal Palm Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This beautifully restored, 390-room beachfront property is a modern reincarnation of Miami’s first luxury hotel -- The Royal Palm. Highlights include two swimming pools, two restaurants, three bars, a nightclub, a full-service spa, stylish rooms, and a great address on swank Collins Avenue. The rooms are modern and sophisticated, with well-stocked minibars and original paintings by local artists. Guests have to pay a daily “beach fee,” but they get a lot in return, including free bikes, paddleboards, umbrellas, beach chairs, and fitness classes.

Mondrian South Beach

Mondrian South Beach Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Debuting in 2009 and designed by Marcel Wanders, the off-the-beach Mondrian is as stylish as its party-centric South Beach siblings, the Delano and Shore Club, but lacks the hyped-up clubbers. Its impeccable service, kitchen-equipped rooms, and notable after-parties at the Sunset Lounge draw well-heeled singles but also families seeking more than the PG-13 kitsch of most family hotels.

Hilton Grand Vacations Club at South Beach

Hilton Grand Vacations Club at South Beach Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Offering just 52 rooms in one of the world's most desirable destinations, it's no surprise that the Grand Vacations Club, a timeshare property owned and operated by Hilton, is sold out for months at a stretch. Divided between two adjacent Art Deco buildings directly on Ocean Drive, the hotel clearly has a lock on prime location. However, guests expecting resort-style amenities will be disappointed: The property has no pool, restaurant, lounge or room service, and parking is valet only. Families will likely appreciate the small kitchen for whipping up a quick breakfast or lunch.

Loews Miami Beach Hotel

Loews Miami Beach Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 790-room Loews Miami Beach Hotel is a luxurious mega-resort with attentive service and a big, freeform pool overlooking a beautiful stretch of beachfront. The hotel has a spa, gym, several upscale restaurants, and a convenient, central South Beach location. Some guests complain about securing a poolside chair (and there's a pesky fee for chairs on the beach) plus rates are high and extras like valet parking and gym access are pricey. Families are drawn to the hotel for a list of supervised activities for kids and pets are indulged with treats and toys.

The Ritz-Carlton South Beach

The Ritz-Carlton South Beach Rating: 4.0 Pearls

A huge (though relaxed) beachfront resort with reliable service, a great pool, a top-notch spa, and a modern fitness center, the Ritz offers more for the money. Less crowded than its hip, style-focused boutique neighbors, the family-friendly Ritz is still in a prime position to explore SoBe.

Pestana South Beach Art Deco Hotel

Pestana South Beach Art Deco Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Located off Collins Avenue, The Pestana South Beach is a quiet, relaxed 99-room boutique two blocks from the beach. A central courtyard has a lovely pool with tall palm trees along with a bar and restaurant. Rooms are modern and bright with big flat-screen TVs, but there is no fitness center or business center. A variety of restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance. Guests may want to compare prices with nearby mid-range options such as the Albion (which does have a fitness center) and the Cadet Hotel.

Metropole South Beach

Metropole South Beach Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Relaxed and private (rare for South Beach), the Metropole draws families and low-key groups to a quieter, shopping-focused street one block away from the beachside party scene. Adventurously designed apartment-style rooms come with full kitchens and private bedrooms, but the hotel lacks other amenities -- no gym, no spa, unreliable Wi-Fi, and just a tiny, shallow pool.

Sense South Beach Hotel

Sense South Beach Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 18-room Sense Hotel has a modern, minimalist look throughout, starting with the stark white lobby and continuing with the neon orange-lit hallways and the sleek, sexy rooms (which feature photographic murals covering the walls behind the comfy beds). The spacious rooms are definitely the highlight, with updated amenities such as iPod docks and flat-screen TVs, and nice bathrooms with walk-in showers and teak accents. But those looking for extra amenities (or really any amenities) will be disappointed -- there is no fitness center, spa, or restaurant (although there's talk of one being planned), and the rooftop pool is small and doesn't have the hip vibe (or the drink service) that many other SoBe hotel pools have. Therefore, it's surprising that the hotel charges a resort fee (it covers in-room Wi-Fi and beach and towel rentals). That aside, the hotel is in a nice location on a quieter spot of Ocean Drive -- still just a block from the beach and a short walk from the center of the SoBe action.

Marriott South Beach

Marriott South Beach Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Renovated in 2004, the South Beach Marriott meets the standards of its parent company (clean, comfortable rooms; competent service) while providing a few pleasant surprises of its own (an aviary; a scenic patio), all in a hip SoBe neighborhood. But for the price, you can usually find a South Beach hotel that also offers doting service and innovative design.

Hilton Bentley Miami/South Beach

Hilton Bentley Miami/South Beach Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Comparable to its next-door neighbor the South Beach Marriott in both price and quality, the Bentley places stately decor (marble floors, fringed drapes) within beachside condo-style suites -- a curious combo. The amenities are nice, but if you're looking for quiet luxury in South Beach, take that $300+ a night and head 15 to 20 blocks northward.
