Top 5 Miami Hotels You Want To Stay In When Visiting
Updated: Aug 12, 2019
These hotels are not solely based on the luxury of the hotel. If so we would be here all day! The top five hotels listed are based on fun, excitement, location and to keep you in the loop for a celebrity filled travel. Now, don't get me wrong all the hotels listed are of course top of the line. Cost a pretty penny per night to lay your head to rest, I mean where else would you expect stars to stay?
The stars turned out for the hotel's grand reopening party in November 2008 -- Kate Hudson, Alex Rodriguez, Gwyneth Paltrow, Amanda Bynes, and the Kardashian sisters were among them -- and haven't stopped coming by since. They come to party at events like Lady Gaga's New Year's Eve poolside concert, where stars including Hayden Panettierre, Kevin Connolly, Chace Crawford, and J.C. Chasez came to help Gaga ring in 2010, and stayed to celebrate at the hotel's LIV nightclub (which has also played host to Christina Aguilera and Kim Kardashian during celebrity stylist Simone Harouche's bachelorette party). Maria Sharapova, Sean Combs, Nick Lachey, and Molly Sims have all been seen partying here in the past. The hotel is also a hotspot for celebrity families, like J-Lo and her twins and Kate Hudson and son Ryder.
2. Delano Hotel
The hotel's nightclub, the Florida Room, was designed by Lenny Kravitz, and its Lucite piano's keys have been tickled by both Kravitz and Jamie Foxx. Queen Latifah, Sean Paul, Ludacris, Wyclef and Grace Jones have performed here as well. George Clooney reportedly stayed at the hotel in the spring of 2009 while filming Up in the Air, and Justin Timberlake is also said to have laid his fair head down at the Delano. Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock, Chris Rock, Owen Wilson, Beyonce, and Tobey Maguire have all reportedly stayed here, too. Players on the Miami Heat have been known to grab a drink at the Rose Bar.
3. Ritz Carlton South Beach
"No" is not in the vocabulary of the staff at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach, which prides itself on its excellent service to even its most particular patrons, including Russell Simmons, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. The hotel has a staff of tanning butlers who wander around the pool offering free spritzes of Evian, sunscreen application, and sunglasses cleaning. These butlers claim to have rubbed the likes of Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey, Johnny Knoxville, and Vivica A. Fox.
4. Mandarin Oriental
Located on Brickell Key, a tiny island off the shore of downtown Miami, the Mandarin Oriental is secluded and exclusive -- perfect for celebrity couples looking for a getaway. When they were a hot item, John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston holed up here for five days, during which he reportedly sent flowers to the room almost every day. The hotel's clientele is also rumored to include celebrities like Penelope Cruz, Mick Jagger and the Dalai Lama. Once, when Michael Jackson stayed here, he felt the urge to sign his name on the painting in his room (the hotel kept it)
5. W South Beach
After announcing his contract with Miami Heat, LeBron James partied with teammates at the W South Beach, booking six poolside cabanas for the weekend. Knight and Day costars Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise took a break from filming to attend a superbowl bash in 2010 with their significant others, Alex Rodriguez and Katie Holmes, and the hotel's a known favorite of the likes of Pamela Anderson and Hilary Swank.
