Fodor's Expert Review Kimpton Angler's South Beach Hotel

660 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, Florida, 33139, United States See on Map

This boutique hotel, one of several in Miami under the Kimpton brand, has an air of serenity and privacy that pervades this discreet little oasis of personality-driven villas (built in 1930 by architect Henry Maloney) and modern tower units, together capturing the feel of a sophisticated private Mediterranean villa community. The private, landscaped setting makes it easy to forget that the hotel is on busy Washington Avenue, two blocks from the beach. The wonderfully contemporary tower units have private sunning gardens or rooftop terraces with hot tubs, and single-floor kings are set around a lovely pool. A new wing with 85 additional rooms is set to open June 2018.

room

Rooms are furnished with neutral tones, then accented with pops of blue hues in the curtains, linens, and lighting fixtures. Bamboo floors and mini bars are some of the amenities en suite.

If you want to splurge, ask for a room with a private rooftop terrace or a jacuzzi.

Modern bathrooms feature rainfall showerheads and bath essentials.

Most rooms offer showers only.

Bars

WHY WE LIKE IT

The Angler's choice of rooms and mix of old and new, gives guests a wide range of experiences. The hotel is centrally located to the beach and most of the shops and restaurants in South Beach.
