Fodor's Expert Review The Tides South Beach

1220 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach, Florida, 33139, USA

The Tides South Beach, which celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2016, is an exclusive Ocean Drive art deco hotel of all ocean-facing suites adorned with soft pinks and corals, gilded accents, and marine-inspired decor. The exceptionally tactful personalized service makes every guest feel like a celebrity, and the hotel looks like no other in the city. When Kelly Wearstler redid the Tides in 2009, she thankfully did away with the quintessential SoBe white-on-white minimalism. All of the hotel's suites are strikingly large (starting at 500 square feet) and flaunt sensational direct ocean views. The pool here is private as can be. Seeking discretion? Voilà.

PROS

  • superior service
  • great beach location
  • ocean views from all suites plus the terrace restaurant (where we recommend cocktails only)

CONS
