Eco-Conscious Hotel Steps from South Beach

The preserved art-deco façade of the Clifton South Beach fits right in with Miami's colorful, playful, and retro architecture, but what you can't see from looking is the hotel's unique and comprehensive commitment to eco-friendly practices. Locally made bamboo furniture and organic, biodegradable bath products are just the beginning. The carbon-neutral building employs energy-efficient lighting as well as recycled textiles, and is powered in part by solar roof paneling—all while managing to look as sleek and chic as you'd expect from one of the most glamorous cities in the world.

Inside Eco Smart rooms, bamboo platform beds feature mattresses made of 100% renewable materials. Similarly, the fabric used in the curtains and upholstery comes from 100% post-consumer recycled content. A sensor-equipped energy system conserves power when you're not in the room. Even the artwork is earth-friendly—it was printed using water-based inks and framed with recycled wood.

Downstairs in the hotel's lounge, you can sip welcome cocktails before walking half a block to the famous sands of South Beach. Also close by is Clifton's sister property, Carlton South Beach, where Clifton guests can enjoy complimentary access to the hotel's tropical pool and lounge chairs.

Miami's South Beach: World-Famous Beach Parties and Art-Deco Icons

Just east of downtown Miami, on the southern tip of the barrier island that forms Miami Beach, South Beach is one of the world's epicenters for nightlife. The clubs along Ocean Drive are legendary for their all-night blowouts, and for good reason—between the rum-soaked mojitos, colorful neon, and celebrity sightings, it feels a bit like you've stepped into an endless party. Perhaps that's why the area pops up so often in film and TV, including Burn Notice and The Birdcage.

South Beach's actual coast is known as Lummus Park, which Frommer's calls Miami's "best beach for people-watching." While the bleached sand and curving palms are gorgeous, they're almost overshadowed by the chiseled beach-goers dotting the sand. From here, a wood-slat boardwalk runs all the way up to North Beach, attracting joggers and roller bladers. You can also head about a mile south to South Pointe Park or to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park across the bay for quieter, more secluded shores.

It’s easy enough to spend the entirety of a trip to South Beach face-down on a beach towel, but that would mean missing out on the city's other trademarks. The historical art-deco district boasts iconic, streamlined hotels in pastel shades. Every morning at 10:30, local experts from the Miami Design Preservation League lead a 90-minute walking tour that highlights the neighborhood's signature architecture.
