W Miami

485 Brickell Ave., Miami, Florida, 33131, USA

Formerly the Viceroy, Miami's second W hotel cultivates a brash, supersophisticated Miami attitude, likely stemming from its guest rooms decked out with dramatic Kelly Wearstler, Asian-inspired interiors and larger-than-life common areas designed by Philippe Starck. The 15th-floor pool deck and massive spa adorned with awesome, whimsical furnishings and ornaments of Alice in Wonderland proportions are quintessential Starck, headlined by a 300-foot-long infinity pool that spills out onto Biscayne Bay, a gargantuan hot tub the size of a regular pool, and tree-lined sunning areas with chaises and oversized cabanas. The spa is equally jaw-dropping, with the lobby opening to a massive yellow Murano glass chandelier. Below, entire multistory libraries flank a labyrinth of relaxation pools and relaxation vignettes. FIFTY, the rooftop lounge and bar on the 50th floor, offers the best eye-popping views in Miami.
