Why Stay At Hotel Breakwater South Beach
A Miami Beach icon since 1936, the Hotel Breakwater South Beach, on Ocean Drive, mixes Art Deco pedigree with newly revitalized interiors.
Yet another indication of Miami's hotel explosion? The revitalized Hotel Breakwater South Beach, a 1936 Art Deco gem that is once again ready for prime time, thanks to a radical renovation that included the addition of the former Edison Hotel next door. The top-to-bottom update in 2011 retained the exterior and the property's iconic double-sided marquee tower and signage: a reminder of architect Anton Skislewicz's original design, which helped to shape the city's skyline. Inside, designer Stephen Jacobs went full force. Shunning typical tropical colors, spaces are done up in white and lime green; the 100 spacious rooms overlook Ocean Drive or the shore itself. But the property's rebirth is most obvious at the popular rooftop deck, where fashion-forward travelers sunbathe, cocktails in hand.
Don't miss a dip in the hotel's glass-sided plunge pool, where swimmers feel as though they're floating above Ocean Drive.
Set the alarm clock to catch the sunrise; there's no better place to greet the dawn than on the hotel's rooftop deck, which faces east.
Arrive at Miami-Dade Airport (MIA) which is approximately 11 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 15 to 25 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.940 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, Florida, United States
