Acqualina Resort & Spa, located in the heart of Sunny Isles, is the best waterfront hotel in the country and the top beachfront resort in the continental U.S. This serene, lush and peaceful hotel features Miami-style accommodations (oh, hi, cabanas, beachfront spa and swanky restaurants) without the South Beach chaos. It’s the best of all worlds.

3. Fontainbleau Miami Beach

Between the nine restaurants, the private cabanas, the nightclubs and the spa, the only reason to leave the Fontainebleau hotel would be to make the five-minute drive down to the Art Deco district on South Beach. Yes, this is probably the most quintessential South Beach hotel there is.

4. Faena Hotel Miami Beach

We guarantee your BFF has never stayed at a place like this before. The Faena is more than just a hotel—it’s your own temporary palace. This opulent establishment is home to famed Argentine eatery Los Fuegos, a South American–inspired spa and a private beachfront oasis. Oh, there’s also a 24-karat-gold woolly mammoth skeleton in a glass case in the backyard…because, you know, why not?

5. The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove

You may find it surprising that Coconut Grove, Miami’s oldest neighborhood, is the area’s newest dining hub. Stay at the Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove to be within walking distance of some of Miami’s best restaurants (some of which are even on the property!). There’s Giorgio Rapicavoli’s Glass & Vine, swanky cocktail lounge the Commodore, Michael Schwartz’s Tigertail + Mary and Harry’s Pizzeria, and Michael Beltran’s Ariete. Get ready for the ultimate food tour.

6. The Biltmore

Dating back to the 1920s, the Biltmore is an icon of Miami glitz and glamour. Once frequented by celebrities and socialites (think Judy Garland, Al Capone, the Vanderbilts and the Roosevelts), the hotel features gorgeous winding courtyards, an expansive golf course, large sky-blue pools and afternoon high tea. Oh, and don’t forget about its legendary champagne brunch on Sundays. We’ll have whatever Eleanor Roosevelt had.

7. The Diplomat Beach Resort

We all have that one friend who thinks Miami is overrated. Enter the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood. With far fewer crowds than South Beach and just as much charm as Key West, the Diplomat offers eight different restaurants, two sun-drenched pools with numerous cabanas and direct (and private) beach access, and a world-class spa facing the Atlantic Ocean, so there’s absolutely no reason to ever leave the property. Miami, who?
