A four-star, AAA Four Diamond Art Deco gem and Historic Hotel of America on Collins Avenue, with a dining credit and reduced resort fee

If you’re someone who gets stumped when playing Would You Rather, here’s one choice you no longer have to make: the decadent Art Deco and Swing eras or the casual present day. National Hotel Miami Beach lets you stay both ways, keeping its founding 1939 spirit alive, while continuing to modernize (most recently, with a $12 million renovation in 2014). There aren’t a whole lot of places where you’ll find modern art alongside a mosaic and paintings by period artist Tamara de Lempicka, or a Roy France high-rise at the end of Miami’s longest infinity pool, but the Historic Hotel of America didn’t win its TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for being anything less than unique.

Nor did it win its four diamonds from AAA for being anything less than luxurious – high style is, after all, something common to flappers and millennials. Art Basel photos by the designers behind Beyoncé’s Dangerously in Love cover have appeared in the hotel’s mezzanine, and Tamara Bistro offers a sumptuous Sunday Jazz Brunch with mimosas and bellinis under the mosaic. The pool’s so fancy, it’s been the backdrop for wedding shoots and a high-profile event with supermodel Nina Agdal, which popped up in luxury Hispanic mag LUHHO, and massages are available on demand in the spa cabana. At this over-the-top indulgent hotel, there's no need to limit yourself to the 30s, 40s or 21st century; you can have it all.

Good to know

A reduced resort fee of $9 (usually $19) per room, per night is payable directly to the hotel and includes pool access, beach access, beach loungers, beach towels, fitness center access, Internet access (may be limited), newspaper, phone calls (may be limited) and an in-room safe.

Our advertised lowest rate is available on select dates in November, but every bookable date is still the lowest price for that room, on that night, that you'll find anywhere online.

We like

  • The Historic Hotel of America’s iconic Roy France 1930s architecture and Tamara de Lempicka murals
  • Staying right in the heart of the vibrant Art Deco District, a block away from the beach and Lincoln Road Mall
  • Soaking up some sun, and then taking a dip in Miami's longest infinity pool
  • The buzz by AAA, which gave National four diamonds, and magazines like U.S. News & World
