As one of the world’s top travel destinations, Miami is always opening new hotels to accommodate its ever-growing influx of visitors. From a chic beach cottage and revamped historic Art Deco buildings, to a two-in-one hotel concept, a co-living and -working hotel space, an LGBTIQ+-friendly property and more, these are the hottest new hotels coming to Miami.

Life House South Beach

Following the opening of its first hotel, Life House Little Havana, in early 2019, the brand is now putting the finishing touches on a second property in South of Fifth. Just steps from the ocean and close to some of Miami’s most iconic restaurants, Life House South Beach will serve as a light, airy beach retreat. Both eclectic and inspiring, the design scheme plays with art, color and texture, making every room feel like the intersection of an artist studio and a beach cottage. The hotel itself will occupy a 1930s Tudor cottage designed by Henry Hohauser, and will be marked by whitewashed wood plank walls and ceilings, as well as a sea-inspired bar and backyard kitchen. The property is expected to open in June 2019.

Casa Florida Hotel Miami Little Havana

A historic hotel in Miami’s vibrant Little Havana neighborhood is getting a full makeover—and the result has Millennials in mind. Designed for the nomadic young adult, Selina Hotel Little Havana will be a boutique hotel with coworking and co-living spaces, a mix of shared and private rooms, weekly BBQs, workshops, outdoor concerts, culinary collaborations with Casa Florida, art and wellness initiatives and more. Epitomizing “South Florida chic,” the new Casa Florida Hotel Miami will have a Florida Keys-meets-Tulum vibe. The property is open.

Lennox Hotel Miami Beach

The new Lennox Hotel Miami Beach will open with a historic past. Occupying what was once the Peter Miller Hotel, the original Art Deco frame was built in 1936. The building itself is one of 300 properties in Miami Beach that were leased by the U.S. Army during World War II and used as Air Force Technical Training Command. When it debuts as the Lennox Hotel, this bold, boutique property will have 19 stylish, sophisticated guestrooms and curated décor from none other than acclaimed Argentinean interior designer, Juan Ciavarella. Using nature as his inspiration, Ciavarella has incorporated green and upcycled materials and handcrafted furnishings from around the world. The property is expected to open in summer 2019.

Palihouse Miami Beach

Los Angeles-based Paligroup will open their first hotel on the East Coast, and they’ve chosen Miami Beach as their debut destination. Taking over the 1940s-built Greenbrier Hotel, the 71-room Palihouse Miami Beach will overlook Indian Creek waterway, putting guests in the best location to explore all Miami Beach has to offer. This boho-chic, Mediterranean-inspired property will have oversized, residential-style rooms and studios, most with kitchenettes that offer easy access to a beach club and waterway boat dock. Greenbrier Swim & Social will be the hotel’s signature lounge, cocktail bar and pool area, bringing guests and locals together for food, drinks and fun in the sun. The property is expected to open in summer 2019.

Hotel Palomar South Beach

Part of the Kimpton family, Hotel Palomar South Beach will soon be the newest addition to Miami Beach’s hip Sunset Harbour neighborhood. Tapping the skills of legendary Miami architect and designer, Kobi Karp, the hotel will feature a striking a rooftop pool, a sky bar and restaurant and panoramic Atlantic Ocean, Downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay views. Like the sleek design, the amenities won’t lack, either. Guests can expect in-room yoga mats and spa treatments, mini bars with gourmet treats, private balconies and terraces, complimentary coffee and tea every morning, a daily evening wine hour, pet amenities, a 24-hour fitness center, concierge services and more. After all, it isn’t called “The Jewel of Sunset Harbour” for nothing. The property is expected to open in 2019.

AxelBeach Miami

Debuting its first property in Barcelona in 2003, Axel Hotels is a Spanish hotel brand designed for the LGBTIQ+ community. Promoting values of tolerance, diversity and respect, the brand will open its first U.S. location, AxelBeach Miami, right here in Miami Beach. Staying true to the area’s historic roots, the 159-room property will occupy a 1940s-era Art Deco building just steps from the sand. Giving guests everything they could need or want, this hotel will have a wellness spa and fitness area, a sky bar terrace, a rooftop swimming pool and a bar-restaurant. The property is expected to open in 2019.

The Greystone Hotel

Art Deco continues to reign in Miami Beach, and The Greystone Hotel offers a peek into the city’s Golden Era charm. Just steps from the recently-renovated Miami Beach Convention Center, this 56,000-square-foot VOS Hospitality property will take over a building that was originally erected in 1936. After it opens, this upscale, boutique hotel will have 92 rooms, a five-story tower with eight private terraces, a rooftop swimming pool and bar, a 140-seat restaurant and a subterranean speakeasy lounge, all designed by Shulman + Associates. Staying true to its historic structure, the full restoration will keep the building’s original Art Deco façade and lobby, but add the modern elements befitting a 2019 hotel. The property is expected to open in 2019.

Wyndham Grand and TRYP by Wyndham

Hotel giant Wyndham Hotel Group is trying something new in Miami! For the first time ever, the company will open a dual-concept property that combines both the Wyndham Grand and TRYP by Wyndham brand hotels. Perfect for traveling families, there will be 41 floors and 445 rooms—200 under Wyndham Grand and 245 under TRYP by Wyndham—as well as Wyndham’s signature family-style layout with extra space and bunk beds for kids. To keep it simple, both hotels will share core common areas: like a lobby and lounge space, an expansive pool deck and a rooftop restaurant and bar. The property is expected to open in late 2019.

Thompson South Beach

The Thompson South Beach is making a comeback! Having opened briefly in Miami’s Mid-Beach before selling to Hyatt—becoming what we now know as The Confidante—the Thompson South Beach will reopen in a new Miami Beach location on the corner of 17th and Washington Avenue. Conceptualized by famed French architect Rudy Ricciotti, this 150-room hotel will draw design inspiration from the nearby New World Center. It will have spacious rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, meeting spaces, seasonal restaurant concepts and a year-round rooftop pool and bar area with unobstructed views of the Miami Beach skyline, New World Symphony's renowned WALLCAST® concerts and the Atlantic Ocean. The property is expected to open in 2020.
