Fodor's Expert Review Faena Hotel Miami Beach

3201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, Florida, 33140, USA Fodor's Choice

The gem of hotelier Alan Faena's Faena Arts District, this jaw-dropping beachfront hotel is as luxurious as it gets, with top-notch dining, a pampering spa, and art that includes larger-than-life murals and a gilded mammoth by Damien Hirst. The towering property is a stunning reinvention of the art deco 1948 Saxony Hotel with dramatic common areas and prolific art installations. Gawk at the details throughout the cathedral lobby, which glitters with gold-leafed columns, or scope out nirvana at the 22,000-square-foot, high-design Tierra Santa Spa, which is rooted in South America’s rich indigenous culture. Enjoy some top-notch dining and burlesque in the 220-seat dinner theater and later retreat to your glamorous room, decked out in art deco–style interiors.
