When you think of Miami, you may find yourself envisioning the bare legged babes of South Beach slow jogging across hotel private beaches or strutting down Collins Ave. But there’s a whole other world happening in Miami, a destination that caters to a more sophisticated, grown-up crowd that will spare you the spring break special happening at Story. Known as Miami’s “Manhattan of the South”, Brickell has become one of the largest financial districts in the nation and the business hub of the the Magic City. Home to high rise financial centers, luxury condos, cute cafes, and plenty of happy hours, we found our own haven at one of our favorite retreats: SLS Brickell. The colorful façade boasts 124-rooms and is all about style, luxury, and service. With world-class décor by Phillipe Starck, incredible dining options (both led by James Beard awarded chefs), a breathtaking pool deck with two plunge pools, hot or cold, and a couple of drinking destinations to cozy up with a cocktail, you get the best of both sophistication and playfulness at the city’s center without ever having to leave the hotel. But in case you do want a little fun in the sand and sun, SLS Brickell offers you VIP access to the Delano Miami Beach cabanas, lounges, and towels. That’s what we call the best of both worlds.
