Just as he did back in the 1990s with the Delano, hotel design guru Ian Schrager reinvented the Miami Beach experience with the classy Miami Beach EDITION. The hotel has 294 individually designed guest rooms, including 28 private oceanfront bungalows, and a spectacular rooftop penthouse.
Quirky details abound—there’s even an ice skating rink on site—and there are five drinking and dining options, including the Matador Room, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s innovative Latin fusion restaurant. Vongerichten’s Market at EDITION is a food hall-inspired restaurant that is part patisserie, part boulangerie, and part salumeria, serving up everything from pizza to ceviche. The Spa offers Ayurvedic treatments, body scrubs, couples massages, and lap pool sessions, with access to a 24-hour gym and personal training services.
