Fontainebleau Miami Beach

4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, Florida, 33140, United States

Vegas meets art deco at this colossal classic, deemed Miami's biggest hotel after its $1 billion reinvention, which spawned more than 1,500 rooms (split among 658 suites in two new all-suite towers and 846 rooms in the two original buildings), 12 renowned restaurants and lounges, LIV nightclub, several sumptuous pools with cabana islands, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a 40,000-square-foot spa. There's so much going on in and around the hotel that you can easily forget about the downy sands directly behind the property. And much like a cruise ship, there's plenty to do for party-ready adults and restless kids and teens alike. The property teems with new amenities, but thankfully everything is not new: two Morris Lapidus–designed, landmarked exteriors and lobbies were restored to their original state. Rooms, however, were completely gutted, down to the beams, and given new, contemporary designs. This is a complex of historic proportions that's made Mid-Beach rival South Beach as Florida's most trendsetting neighborhood. Having a handful of the Magic City's top restaurants in-house sure doesn't hurt. At night, those of drinking age who are tired of waiting to get into LIV nightclub, get their drink on in the Lobby Lounge.
