Fodor's Expert Review Gale South Beach

1690 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, Florida, 33139, USA

Though it’s not directly on the beach—it’s across the street—this boutique hotel offers fabulous, style- and value-conscious accommodations in the heart of South Beach with plenty of art deco history to boot. The hotel was originally designed by noted architect Murray Dixon in 1941 as sister hotels, the Gale South Beach & Regent Hotel, and resurrected in 2012 by Menin Hospitality. Sun worshippers looking for a scene can hang out at the pool deck in their best skimpy swimsuits or chill on the Roof Deck with a cocktail. Hotel guests have complimentary beach club access at the Shelborne Beach Club, also managed by Menin Hospitality.
