And now, an update to the Curbed Miami Hotel 18, our map of the 18 'Essential' South Florida hotels. After much thought and consternation, we've made a few additions and a few subtractions. Last time around, the map was whittled down to include only 'Miami' hotels, but a true comprehensive list of the most essential hotels in our market is really incomplete if it doesn't consider Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach. And so we have, adding the Breakers and the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 to the list. Sadly, we dropped the Raleigh due to its somewhat mysterious future (what will Tommy Hilfiger unleash upon the place? Will a planned rear expansion do too much harm?) and the Freehand.
We'll be updating the map again in due time, so if you have a favorite that wasn't included, please mention it in the comments or tip us for next time. If you spot a hotel unworthy of the Hotel 18 distinction, we want to hear about that, too.Read More
