Fodor's Expert Review Faena Hotel Miami Beach

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

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.
