Fodor's Review

This historic art deco property inhabits the historic Tiffany building on Collins Avenue as well as a second building along fabulous Ocean Drive with interiors by fashion designer Todd Oldham. The name "Tiffany" spelled out vertically in eye-popping neon on the venue’s iconic aluminum spire is evidence of the hotel’s original identity. When the L. Murray Dixon–designed Tiffany Hotel was erected in 1939, neon was still a novelty. Its use, coupled with the spire’s rocket-like shape, combined to create a futuristic look influenced by the sci-fi themes then pervasive in popular culture. Nowadays, everything in this quirky, romantic boutique hotel, from the decor to the tie-dye bathrobes hanging in the small but cute bathrooms, is colorful and eclectic. Somehow the aesthetic of soft browns and whites works, thanks to the knowing eye of designer Oldham (though it's starting to feel a bit 1990s at this point). Add soft lighting and two-person bathtubs, and you have all the makings of a romantic retreat. The hotel's most exquisite treat is a rooftop bar, a low-key hangout where locals and hotel guests lounge on Thursday–Saturday nights.
