Welcome to the first-ever edition of Curbed's Hotel 38 map, your answer to the question, "Where should I stay in Miami?" We've combined reader and expert recommendations to compile the following map of Miami's, and really all of South Florida's, 38 most essential hotels, in no particular order. These hostelries run the gamut from the affordable-if-you're-the-heir-to-a-greek-shipping-fortune, to the affordable-if-you're-just-moderately-well-off. We're working on the affordable-if-you're-broke segment, but in this city of leisure, that's a bit tough. We've got very, very hot hotels, more boutique-ish places, business hotels, historic hotels, and a few oddball surprises. But what the Curbed Miami 38 Essential Miami/South Florida Hotels Map does not include is new hotels. They have to be at least a year old, although most are probably much older. These 38 essentials are the reliable, gold standard of the Miami hotel scene that by now have proved their keep.
For those of you readying the pitchforks because your favorite isn't included, wouldn't it just be more productive to tip us for next time? If you don't mind, please let us know exactly what you think (be nice, we're sensitive) in the comments, or sent it over to the tipline, here.
