This property has been rebranded as the W Miami.

If Viceroy Miami has a homelike feel that sets it apart from corporate chains, there’s a good reason. Only 14 of its 50 floors are dedicated to hotel guests; the remainder are residential units. The “This could be my home” sensibility extends to guest rooms, each with a unique design and select furniture: In one room, it’s a massive, checkered marble writing desk; in another, it’s a specially painted headboard above the bed. All rooms, though, have extra-special amenities, such as Illy espresso machines and Neil George toiletries. With exceptional on-site dining, the longest pool in Florida (it’s the equivalent of three football fields and it’s on an outdoor terrace), and a nightclub that features two live DJs, exceptional views of Miami, and an outdoor rooftop pool, it can be hard to leave the hotel and explore the city.

At the 162-room Viceroy Miami, maximalism rules. The hotel is set in a statement-making downtown skyscraper, and Florida’s longest infinity pool graces the two-acre rooftop. A sumptuous Philippe Starck–designed spa is tricked out with marble soaking tubs, redwood-lined saunas, tranquil lounging nooks, and an enormous chartreuse Murano chandelier. —Meeghan Truelove From $345. 485 Brickell Ave., (305) 503-4400.
