Fodor's Expert Review Faena Hotel Miami Beach

3201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, Florida, 33140, USA

Hotelier Alan Faena delivers on the high expectations of his Miami debut with the jaw-dropping, larger-than-life principal hotel within his in-progress, billion-dollar Faena Arts District in Miami Beach. The towering beachfront 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 indigeneous culture. Enjoy some burlesque in the 220-seat dinner theater and later retreat to your glamorous room, decked out in art deco–style interiors.
