The Thompson Miami, California
The Thompson Miami is located a good 15-minute walk north from the traditional South Beach action.
For a brand as synonymous with designer chic as the Thompson, failling short in a location like Miami was just not an option. So relief all round that this 380-room property delivers, and then some, especially at the hands of in-demand interior designer Martin Brudnikzi.
Set in a classic 1950s beachfront building, a relaxed, understated lobby means that rooms pack something of a design punch by contrast. Striking, handpicked artwork, black and white photographs and sculptural wall lamps will make guests feel as though they have arrived somewhere quite special, while bright colour schemes and beach views instantly anchor this property with an unmistakable Miami vibe.
This theme carries seamlessly into the hotel’s Seagrape restaurant. The Floridan cuisine by chef Michelle Bernstein is bold, brave and beautiful both in taste and looks. The flavours are sensational.
Two symmetrical pools surrounded by blue and white cabanas and immaculately dressed poolside staff create the perfect day-time sunbathing spot and the ultimate pool party by night.
The cool factor spreads all the way down to the hotel’s section of private beach, where fun-coloured bright umbrellas and lounger service carve out a slice of sandy heaven for guests.
