Colorful, LGBT-Friendly Boutique Hotel in Miami’s Art Deco District
A vibrant boutique hotel, Lords South Beach is fittingly located in the South Beach Art Deco District, just a frisbee's throw from trendy 12th Street Beach. Travel + Leisure added the property to its It List: The Best New Hotels 2012, lauding the hotel’s bold-and-bright decor, which includes mid-20th-century furnishings and bohemian accents. There's also a playful vibe throughout the hotel—in the lobby, for instance, you come face-to-face with an oversize polar-bear statue clutching a beach ball in its paws.
Just off the lobby, you'll find the glamorous Cha Cha Rooster bar and restaurant, where guests stop for cocktails and flavorful, Latin-inflected entrees. The Porch, a casual onsite eatery, offers a front-row seat to the parade of bronzed masses that frequent Collins Avenue.
Rooms feature mod decor, such as Warhol-esque silk-screen portraits of Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra. After a day at the beach, you can head to your room to snuggle up in a waffle-weave robe and catch a movie on the flat-screen TV.
Miami Beach: Pristine Oceanfront and Latin-Flavored Culture
Miami Beach is set along a series of barrier islands separated from Miami proper by Biscayne Bay. The southernmost portion, South Beach, is known all over the world for its vibrant, pastel-colored art-deco hotels and rollicking nightlife. But the rest of Miami Beach has charms of its own. Water temperatures at the city's pristine beaches stay on the good side of 70 degrees all year long, and views of the Atlantic Ocean are unparalleled. A seaside boardwalk stretches for more than 70 blocks, providing a scenic pathway for jogging, biking, or conga-lining your way from North Beach to South Beach.
No trip to Miami Beach is complete without sampling some authentic Cuban food, such as the medianoche sandwiches available at any local joint. Latin flavor seeps into the music scene, too, inspiring bouts of salsa dancing after a few rum-soaked mojitos at one of the nightclubs along Ocean Drive. A morning-after swim in the calm Atlantic is a good way to restore equilibrium.
