Living in New York means that quick hops to Miami during the cold winter months are easy and worthwhile. I spent five days in ever chic South Beach this New Year’s. It seemed like half of New York was there with me, as others had the same good idea to escape the North’s cold.
What I really love about Miami is its international vibe. It draws travelers from not only across the U.S. but heavily from Central and South America (Brazil, Argentina, Mexico) and Europe (UK, France, Italy, Spain, Russia). It can feel, at times, like a trip abroad but without the jet lag.
I stayed this time at the Raleigh Hotel. I’ve often said in prior posts that no Miami hotel is perfect; each has a flaw or two. The Raleigh, though, is one of my favorites. It is known for its history, dating to its heyday in the Art Deco ‘20s and ‘30s; walking through and relaxing in the lobby and nearby bar is a walk through time (just view the Hollywood celebrity photos that adorn the walls). In addition to the historic lobby, a standout feature is the lovely and grand hotel pool. This is one of the best on the beach strip and it’s also just steps away from the beach, where there’s hotel service too.
