Under the sunny skies of Miami Beach, the Century Hotel, a real Art Deco classic, stands proudly on Ocean Drive. Rewind to 1990, and this gem was grabbing headlines, winning the Miami Beach Design Preservation League award for its stunning exterior. A year later, it’s the interiors turning heads, snagging another award. Fast forward to 2001, and the Century’s hitting the pages of Travel & Leisure Magazine as one of the “25 Stylish Hotels for Under 0”. With just  26 rooms, it’s become a magnet for the cool crowd – celebrities, models, and those who appreciate a mature vibe.

Designed by the legendary Henry Hohauser back in ’39, the Century had a makeover for the modern era. It’s got that understated elegance, never flashy but always on point. It’s about snagging a sweet deal in a cool place without trying too hard. Recent changes in ownership shook things up a bit. Once the go-to spot for artists and the fashion-forward, the Century is now a solid pick for those watching their budget but still wanting to be a stone’s throw from the SoBe action.

Rooms might be on the smaller side, but they’re just right for a quiet retreat away from the buzz. It’s about enjoying the South Beach sparkle without the South Beach price tag. The Century might have changed its tune slightly, but it still plays a beautiful melody.

Nice hotel in an Art Deco building, just minutes walk away from the beach and animation.

 If you’re looking for something with reasonable rates and very stylish rooms to stay I recommend the Century in Ocean Drive. It’s beachfront and if you go to the top floor you can have a complimentary breakfast.

This hotel is a great place to stay. They attended to everything that we needed and more. It is a great location and it is across the street from the beach. I would stay here again.

The property is a no-frill one but the location is great. No elevator, need to carry luggage upstairs..

The design inside the Century Hotel

Just outside the Century Hotel, only 20 yards from the doorstep, you’ll find Prime 112 Steakhouse. This place is a haven for steak aficionados, known far and wide for its juicy cuts and top-notch service. It’s not just a meal; it’s an experience, perfect for those who love their meat with a side of luxury. Take a short walk, about 200 yards, and you hit Nikki Beach – the heartbeat of Miami’s nightlife. This isn’t just any club; it’s an institution. Think high-energy beats, swanky cabanas, and a crowd that knows how to party. For night owls looking to dive into South Beach’s vibrant party scene, this is the place to be.

Seafood lovers, you’re in luck. Just 200 yards from the hotel, Joe’s Stone Crab awaits. It’s not just another seafood joint; this place is legendary. Dating back to 1913, it dishes out the freshest stone crabs and a variety of seafood in a setting that’s quintessentially Old Florida. For a touch of culture, The Jewish Museum of Florida is just a 300-yard stroll away. It’s a treasure trove of stories and artifacts, shedding light on the Jewish community’s rich history in Florida. Engaging and enlightening, it’s a must-visit for history buffs.

Fancy a cruise? Island Queen Cruises, 3 miles from the Century, offers a splendid way to see Miami. These cruises give you front-row seats to the stunning skyline, pristine beaches, and opulent waterfront homes. The heart of South Beach, Ocean Drive, is just 500 yards away. This iconic strip is a kaleidoscope of Art Deco buildings, hip eateries, and lively cafes. It’s the essence of South Beach – vibrant, picturesque, and always buzzing.

For the shoppers, Lincoln Road Mall is just 0.8 miles away. It’s an open-air paradise of high-end stores, popular brands, and fine dining. It’s not just shopping; it’s an experience. And let’s not forget Espanola Way, 0.7 miles from the Century. Step into this European-inspired enclave with its quaint cobblestone streets, open-air restaurants, and unique shops and galleries. It’s like a little slice of Europe in Miami. With the Century Hotel as your base, you’re perfectly placed to dive into the best South Beach has to offer – from its culinary delights to its vibrant nightlife and cultural hotspots.
