WHY IT’S HOT The W South Beach Hotel and Residences has created quite a niche for itself on South Beach. The hotel offers ocean views from each guestroom, as well as a lengthy list of luxurious amenities such as a state of the art fitness center and private rooftop basketball and tennis courts. Book a reservation in a WOW Cabana and you’ll find yourself sun bathing in a private cabana complete with a flat-screen TV.
WHAT TO DO During the day, make an appointment at W’s Bliss Spa, which offers everything from manicures and pedicures to facials and massages. Following your pampering session, grab a bite at one of two restaurants located within the hotel. Come night time, you can visit one of W's elegant bars speckled with VIPs and chic stars.
WHO’S BEEN THERE The W South Beach has recently hosted a number of ultra-exclusive events attended by celebrities like Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz and Hillary Swank.
