Fodor's Expert Review Gale South Beach

1690 Collins Ave., 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. Originally designed by noted architect L. Murray Dixon as sister hotels, the Gale and the Regent, debuting in 1941, the hotel was resurrected in 2012 by Menin Hospitality. Sun worshippers looking for a scene can hang out on the pool deck in their best skimpy swimsuits or chill on the rooftop with a cocktail. Hotel guests have complimentary beach club access at the Shelborne Hotel, also managed by Menin Hospitality.

PROS
