Luxury for Less in Miami: Travel like a celebrity on a real-world budget

"Luxury" and "value" don't have to be mutually exclusive. Sure, if you could afford it, you'd stay at The Setai in a heartbeat -- but at over $550 a night, it just might not be in the cards. But that doesn't mean you can't get pampered like an A-lister. At the Hotel Victor and the Angler's Boutique in South Beach, you'll get style and features that are comparable to those at some of Miami's priciest luxury properties. Not the same, mind you, but similar enough that -- like a really good designer knock-off -- you'll hardly be able to tell the difference.
