National Hotel Review

The National Hotel has maintained its distinct art deco heritage (the chocolate- and ebony-hued pieces in the lobby date back to the 1930s, and the baby grand piano headlines the throwback Blues Bar) while also keeping up with SoBe's glossy newcomers with its renovated cabana wing and art deco tower. The hotel serves as a bastion of calm in the sea of white-on-white mod decor and raucous reveling typical of most other beachfront properties lining this stretch of Collins Avenue. The most spectacular feature is Miami Beach's longest pool, which stretches from the tower, past a series of comfy black-and-white-striped cabanas and poolside tables, to a duo of tropical tiki bars and the beach. Rooms in the main tower were renovated in 2012 and 2013 (they shockingly had boob tube TVs until 2013). However, the cabana wing is still preferred by most.

2010 Fodor's 100 Hotel Award Winner

The National Hotel has remained apart from South Beach's raucous pool and party scene, instead remaining true to Art Deco past and a calmer atmosphere of by-gone days. The most spectacular feature is Miami Beach's longest and most beautiful pool, which stretches from the tower to a duo of tropical tiki bars, a series of comfy black-and-white-striped cabanas and poolside tables, then the beach. It's a stunning pool in a perfect location.
