With the temperatures and snow making it feel like its already December, its time to start planning your winter escape to sand and sun. Opened last month on Ocean Drive in Miamis bustling South Beach, Waldorf offers Art Deco style while providing 21st-century comforts. Its 44 rooms sport a monochromatic décor, along with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. The lobby-level Prime Time Café is perfect for a cocktail or a casual bite. Through March 2012, you can book a room at Waldorf for as low as $129/night.
THE VALUE: The hotel expects standard rates to average $259/night, so these opening rates represent a 50 percent discount.
