Fodor's Expert Review Townhouse Hotel

150 20th St., east of Collins Ave., Miami Beach, Florida, 33139, United States

Though sandwiched between the Setai and the Shore Club—two of the coolest hotels on the planet—the Townhouse doesn't try to act all dolled up: it's comfortable being the shabby-chic, lighthearted, relaxed fun hotel on South Beach (and rates include a Continental breakfast). Rooms aren't luxurious, and you won't find many amenities (no gym, no spa, no pool), but if you want to stay in the middle of the action for under $200, in simple clean digs with a good sense of style, this may be a good choice. Enter through a brightly lit, spacious white lobby; after check-in, head to your small but freshly adorned white-and-red room that comes with a beach ball you can keep. The hotel has a rooftop terrace with plush red lounge chairs and a DJ on weekends. With its clean white backdrops and discounts for crew members, there's always a good chance a TV production or magazine shoot is happening. At this hotel in particular, the earlier you book, the more you save.


Rooms are styled in "beachhouse chic"--white furnishings are accented with bursts of primary colors. Sparsely decorated with just what you need for a comfortable stay, each room has a sitting/work space, a mini fridge, and an L-shaped couch for lounging.


Bathrooms are functional and offer a rain shower.


The simple lobby is furnished with chairs and sofas that would belong in any favorite beach house.


K. Ramen. Burger. Beer's name says it all. The restaurant is known for some of Miami Beach's most slurpable noodle bowls and thick burgers.

During karaoke nights, singers are rewarded with "liquid courage" in the form of a free drink.


The Cape is the hotel's rooftop bar with one of the best views in South Beach.


Getting Around

The Townhouse is within walking distance to most South Beach restaurants and attractions. A Miami Beach trolley offers three different routes for free seven days a week.


Blue Ribbon Sushi (10-minute walk) brings one of New York City's favorite sushi bars to South Beach. Root & Bone (5-minute walk) offers sweet tea-brined fried chicken by Top Chef alum Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth.


Sweet Liberty (5-minute walk), named one of 2017's best new bars by Playboy, serves cocktails in a lively setting. Broken Shaker (10-minute drive) has been named one of the World's 50 Best Bars.


A no-frills hideaway on the ocean is a great choice for visitors who would rather spend their money on food and fun than hotel perks.
