The Magic Is In The Details At These 10Best Miami Boutique Hotels

Bored of staying at your run-of-the-mill chain hotels? Had enough with the Holiday Inns and Howard Johnsons? Miami has so many unique overnight options to choose from, it'd be a shame to settle for anything less than a quality boutique hotel experience. That's why we've compiled a list that explores the very best our city has to offer, with choices for everyone's taste and budget. 

Places like Hotel Victor and The Angler's offer affordable accommodations with cool and convenient extras like free access to beach bikes, complimentary yoga mats in every room, complimentary breakfasts, and happy hours that include drinks at no extra cost. These boutique hotels know how to make their guests feel welcomed and appreciated.

Then there are places like The Standard, who are anything but what their name suggests. In fact, the Standard is all about offering their guests an above-average stay by granting them access to incredible luxuries like acupuncture, tai chi and pilates classes, saunas, steam rooms, a mud lounge, and plenty of other things catered to living a health-conscious lifestyle...even if only during your vacation stay.
