South Beach may be the new capital of American cool, but all the celebrity-spotting comes at a steep price – rooms in this most in-demand of holiday destinations can set you back several hundred dollars a night. Enter the Townhouse Hotel Miami Beach, where prices aren’t as absurdly low as they were in the first months after opening, but still quite a bit more accessible than some of the hottest of the hot spots. And this one succeeds where others have failed — some shabby-chic hotels come off a bit more shabby than chic, but the Townhouse (rather like the Standard) makes the most of its budget constraints.
The design is heavy on white, in the prevailing boutique style, but with bold dashes of red to break up the monotony, avoiding the art-gallery pretension of the typical monochrome hotel room. Beach balls and funky furniture, as well as functional touches like self-service laundry machines, mean the atmosphere is a more stylish beach house than a boutique hotel.
Guest rooms are easily arranged to meet all merchandise room needs, and hair and makeup rooms are specifically blocked for lighting. Clamp lights are also on hand for quick fixes, and talent and VIP rooms are well looked after.
The Rooftop Lounge Sushi Bar: Undoubtedly one of the hottest and coolest places on the beach during the day, at night the rooftop transforms into one of South Beach’s hottest social scenes, with rocking roof parties Thursday and Saturday nights.
Many international production teams have stayed at Townhouse Hotel Miami Beach for castings and photoshoots as Elle, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Macy’s, Hugo Boss, Nike, Campari, and many others. It could be a very good choice for your stay in Miami Beach.
