What Are Some of the Best-Rated South Beach Miami Hotels?

The Setai Miami Beach, The Ritz-Carlton South Beach, The Tides South Beach and The Betsy are some of the best-rated hotels in Miami, Florida's South Beach area. All of the properties are four- or five-star hotels known for upscale accommodations and impeccable service.

The Setai adorns its Art-Deco confines with Asian-inspired art and a classy decor instead of the South Beach area's usual funky designs and neon lights. Rooms are appointed with antique jade sculptures and rainfall showers. The hotel offers three different swimming pools, each at a different temperature, to pamper its guests.

The Ritz-Carlton is a huge, family-friendly beachfront resort and spa. The hotel has 128 rooms on 18 floors and is a quieter property cordoned away from some of South Beach's more raucous areas, making it better suited for a restful and relaxing stay than a party tour.

The Tides is a boutique hotel with 45 rooms on 12 floors, and each is equipped with iPod docking stations, VRAI Collection beauty products and Nespresso coffee machines. The hotel does not have direct beach access, but the staff provides beach setups for guests and the property is adjacent to the party and nightlife of South Beach's bars and discos.

The Betsy is a quieter boutique hotel with classic style and modern comforts. The Betsy has a rooftop bar, a wellness garden and spa, and every room has Thasos and Carrera marble bathrooms equipped with Kalista de Stile shower wands, rainforest shower heads and stocked with Malin + Goetz beauty products.
