What I liked:

Best place I've ever stayed in Miami! The rooms were clean, beautiful, and spacious. The bathroom was huge with a walk-in rain nozzle shower. The staff was incredibly helpful, an excellent breakfast was included, along with bike rentals, free bottled water and coffee, and beach towels to borrow. There was even a rooftop pool and terrace! Wish I could have stayed longer! The location on Ocean Drive was perfect for walking right to the beach and restaurants.

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

Hotel Description

Maybe the simplest way to explain Hotel Breakwater is to say that it’s exactly what you’d expect a South Beach boutique hotel would be — if, that is, you’d never seen any of the actually existing South Beach boutique hotels. This one is a modern update of a classic idea: an Art Deco gem of a building, situated right on Ocean Drive, with views of the beach straight across the road.

As South Beach hotels go, this is a smallish one, just shy of a hundred rooms — and that’s a good thing, in our book, as we start getting shy ourselves once that number creeps into the hundreds. It means a fairly intimate atmosphere, a proper boutique vibe, and a chance to offer the kind of personalized service the bigger hotels can only hope for.

The interiors contain plenty of subtle nods to Art Deco history, but they’re unmistakably contemporary, visually as well as physically — the materials are luxe and the technology is state-of-the art. The ocean view is the view you want, unless, of course, you’re in a position to book a rooftop suite, in which case the sky will do in a pinch. Either way both views — ocean and sky — are on display at the pool deck, itself something of a rarity on Ocean Drive. In fact, though the Breakwater seems to have its branding pretty well sorted out, we’d let them have “a rarity on Ocean Drive” for free, if they asked nicely.
