Catalina Hotel

Catalina Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Designed for randy 20-somethings who can rage until 4 a.m., the Catalina can be a godsend. It's moderately priced, across from the beach, and in the heart of the fashionista bar scene. Although there are nice touches like Tempur-Pedic beds and a hip rooftop pool, it's a party hotel at heart, with small rooms and an indifferent staff.

Albion Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This 1930s' Art Deco hotel gained new life after a 2005 renovation by the Rubell family, best known for its Studio 54 connection. For a while, the venue's mod design and surprisingly low rates made the Albion one of the best-kept secrets in South Beach. But a decade later, the hotel needs a bit of TLC and rates are not always such a bargain. The 100-room boutique property still retains some advantages over the local competition, though, including a sunny courtyard pool, a hipster cocktail lounge, and relatively spacious rooms. Be prepared to pay stiff tariffs for breakfast, valet parking, and beach chairs.
Essex House Hotel

Essex House Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 80-room Essex House Hotel is a bastion of Art Deco architecture and decor — so much so that groups of tourists regularly tramp through the lobby on guided tours. And that's not the only hubbub that disrupts this so-called "oasis of calm." The party at the adjacent Clevelander often continues into the wee hours, and the noise keeps some guests awake. On the plus side, there's a tiny pool in a lush, tropical courtyard, a feature that many South Beach hotels lack. Generous freebies include a basic continental breakfast, happy hour cocktails, and fresh towels to use at the beach across the street. Considering the location in the heart of South Beach, this hotel is a terrific value.
Blue Moon Hotel

Blue Moon Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 75-room Blue Moon is a serene, unpretentious boutique hotel that is relatively secluded from the crowds that throng Ocean Drive and the beach, but still conveniently located within walking distance of these popular spots. This historic Art Deco hotel was once the tropical retreat of Merv Griffin, but is now part of Marriott's vast portfolio — which accounts at least in part for the upscale property's polished service. However, much like many of Miami's vintage hotels, rooms and bathrooms here are tight on space.
Townhouse Hotel

Townhouse Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Located right on the beach, the Townhouse offers bright, stylish rooms, but little else. Still, it's a great, comparatively clean alternative to the sketchy, similarly priced hotels throughout South Beach. Young singles might appreciate the Townhouse's proximity to clubs and the mix of good-looking Europeans spending the night.
Riviere South Beach Hotel

Riviere South Beach Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Riviere South Beach Hotel is a modern, mid-range property with 19 rooms in the historic Art Deco district of South Beach. Although it lacks property features such as a restaurant and pool, the hotel is very well-situated for tourists, just a block off chic Ocean Drive and within a 10-minute walk of the beach. The grounds offer lovely, shaded seating areas, and minimalist guest rooms are bright and airy, and have several kitchen appliances. Breakfast and Wi-Fi are free. Guests may also want to consider Crest Hotel Suites, a few minutes north and just off Collins Avenue, with a pool and cafe on-site.

Hotel18 Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 46-room Hotel 18 is a mid-range value property one block from the sandy shores in South Beach. The studios and one-bedroom apartments all have kitchens, making them suitable for longer stays, and some have sofa beds. The hotel has a pretty courtyard with comfy patio furniture and offers parking, a business corner, and laundry machines. There is convenient free Wi-Fi, but some of the room furnishings are plain or even a touch dated. The similarly priced Tradewinds Apartment Hotel has slightly nicer kitchen-equipped suites, but it's slightly farther from the South Beach action.
Whitelaw Hotel & Lounge

Whitelaw Hotel & Lounge Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Whitelaw is perfect for the party animal looking for cheap digs in a central Collins Avenue location. It's got a young, lively party scene, free drinks from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., and hot music that plays 24/7. Rooms aren't the cleanest, but they come with 42-inch plasma TVs, iPod docks, and ridiculous pink decor.
Crescent Resort On South Beach

Crescent Resort On South Beach Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 25-room Crescent Resort On South Beach is a mid-range Art Deco boutique on Ocean Drive across from Lummus Park and the palm-shaded beach. It has an appealing list of features, including a rooftop terrace with sea views, a small gym, concierge services, and an ATM. One- and two-bedroom suites and a penthouse have flat-screen TVs, kitchens, and whirlpool tubs, but decor can be on the plain side (though artistic details such as colorful paintings and blue accent walls are nice touches). Wi-Fi is available throughout, and included in the resort fee. More upscale hotels can be found in South Beach in this price range, but without the Crescent's in-room kitchens.
The Clay Hotel

The Clay Hotel Rating: 2.5 Pearls

The Clay is an affordable boutique hotel with plenty of old-world charm, situated on a palm tree-lined pedestrian street loaded with dining options. The hotel offers few amenities beyond free Wi-Fi and valet parking for an additional fee. Because there are no elevators, guests must climb tiled staircases to reach upper-floor rooms. Rooms are small but clean, and some retain vintage details, such as French doors that open to the lively street scene below. While conveniently located, nearby bars and restaurants can be quite noisy until the wee hours. Guests might also be inconvenienced by noise and disruption from ongoing renovations.
