Miami South Beach, Florida USA

Built during an era of glitz, glamour and gambling, the Hotel Victor in Miami Beach stands as a monument to a time when well-to-do travelers partied by the sea, lost in the reverie of the moment, much as they still do today, actually. In the world of glamorous travel, some things simply never change.

Nightclubs have been the bedrock of Miami Beach fun & games for 75 years, but now the Beach is set to become a true international entertainment destination with the possible arrival of famed performance troupe, Cirque du Soleil. (Jackie Gleason would be so proud...)

Luxurious living in a tropical setting is what Miami Beach condo life is all about. Ocean-front or bayside, the views are breath-taking and the amenities are plentiful in these castles by the sea.

Miami South Beach Hotels

Miami Beach's smaller and uniquely hip hotels can present a great travel experience with a fresh new perspective of style and service. Here's a look at this year's Fab-Four Miami Beach hotels you might want to consider.

With a chic in-hotel salon and cute cabana boys to apply your suntan lotion, Sanctuary makes the scene as a "female-friendly" South Beach hotel providing personal shoppers, jogging/yoga companions day or night, and a calorie-conscious spa menu. Yes, we'd say this is a pretty cool hotel.

SOUTH BEACH HOTELS

Miami Vice with actor Don Johnson became a hit television show, and around the same time a photographer ventured onto the top of one of Ocean Drive's Art Deco hotels for a Calvin Klein "Obsession" photo shoot. Both events helped renew interest in South Beach and it soon became the destination of choice for fashion shoots and films. Sharon Stone, Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Marisa Tomei, Angelica Houston, Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Woods, Jamie Lee Curtis, Whitney Houston, Kevin Costner and Sean Connery have all appeared in films shot in Miami in recent years. Fashion and commercial photo shoots are commonplace throughout South Beach.

During the day, models, vintage cars, Harleys, and rollerbladers of all ages parade past tourists who are relaxing and people watching from one of Ocean Drive's many outdoor cafes. By night, the clubs sizzle.
