Thanks to South Beach’s Eden-esque atmosphere, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a Miami hotel that’s not decked out in high-end amenities, and because of the festival’s popularity, many area hotels offer special rates for this annual foodie fete.
If you're planning ahead for 2014, book a room at The Betsy — South Beach. You’ll be in the heart of the famous Art Deco District and within walking distance of the weekend’s events. The South Beach hotel is designated as a historical landmark, but is far from outdated; the lacquered furniture and hardwood floors are modern yet add to the overall Art Deco aura. While you’re a quick hop away from all the parties, you’re on the quiet part of Ocean Drive when you’re looking to escape the masses.
Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Loews Miami Beach Hotel was an official sponsor of the 2013 festival, as well as the host of several events during the weekend. The rooms are decked out with high-tech amenities — like sensors that adjust the lights and temperature when you go out for the day — yet you don’t lose the feeling that you’re staying in a beachfront hotel, with every room offering a view of the ocean or the lights of South Beach.
The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach often plays host to a plethora of activities during the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, making it an ideal choice for those who like to see and be seen. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel boasts a gorgeous pool surrounded by plush lounge chairs to soak up that irresistible Florida sun.
