Designed by famed architect L. Murray Dixon, the Hotel Victor South Beach in Ocean Drive , first opened its doors in 1937 and immediately welcomed celebrities and socialites into its doors. After closing in the mid-1960s, the hotel underwent a $48 million re-imagining and was reopened in 2003 as Hotel Victor. Located next to the Versace mansion on Ocean Drive – The former Casa Casuarina Hotel – the 1937 property completed an expansion that brought its room total to 88 and placed it at the upper end of the luxury boutique market.
Confident that South Beach was ready for something new, the owners selected internationally renowned decorator Jacques Garcia to breathe life into the building, due to his amazing body of work, including private interiors for some of the wealthiest people in the world. Garcia helped develop a seductive sanctuary at Hotel Victor, his first hotel in the Americas.
The Passage Bar radiates a sensual vibe, with teak tables along the perimeter overlooking the beach. The Passage Bar, Vue, and Pool area are equipped with an outdoor pool table, 40s mosaic-tiled pool, artful video projections, and a DJ on selected nights making it the ultimate place to see and be seen. The scene will pulse at night when the area will be transformed into a VIP lounge.
Reviews“Fab trendy hotel. Brilliantly located with a vibrating bar and great martini’s. A little pricey but what do you expect from a great stay. You pay for what you get. Enjoy! Big plunge baths! ” “Great Hotel and Rooms. in the middle of everything – Ocean Drive South Beach – and good for advising on nightlife!” “Nice Place. Nice Bar. Great rooms. Expensive but I recommend it!” “Great place, great staff!” “Location, Rooms, the pool area has a bar, outdoor shower, restrooms, complimentary water & fruit, towel service. If you arrive earlier than check-in time, they will secure your luggage and you can go to the pool or beach with chair access & provide with towels.” “As small as the rooms were they were comfortable. The bed was great. The pillows were wonderful! Very clean room. Christina the bartender at the pool was very good and pleasant. The decor was edgy but inviting! The shower was cool. Like the rain shower and handheld. The pool was cloudy. It could have been cleaner! There was little to no flow with the jet system. When asked for ice there was none. Apparently, the hotel ran out or does not offer any. How can you make yourself a drink in your room with no ice?! The step from the tub/shower was awkward and steep when stepping in and out. I could see that being a potential hazard for some.“>
