Miami , Florida
Tel: 877 857 7625's insider take:

The Tempo occupies the first 14 floors of the 67-story Marquis residence in downtown Miami; it's one of a growing number of high-end hotels opening in luxury condo towers. The 56 guest rooms, which range from 430 to 1,300 square feet, have floor-to-ceiling windows, and all but seven have balconies with views of Biscayne Bay and South Beach. Decadent materials (Italian mink marble and porcelain soaking tubs in the bathrooms, bamboo wood flooring) plus high-style touches (including Herman Miller desk lamps) set the hotel apart from design pretenders. This escape from the South Beach crowd has a rooftop pool with two hot tubs, as well as another outdoor pool with sweeping city views. Amuse restaurant serves small plates and strong cocktails and is a popular after-work spot. There's an 8,000-square-foot spa on site, as well. If can stir yourself to leave the property, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, American Airlines Arena (where the Miami Heat play) and a range of upmarket restaurants are all within walking distance.—Terry Ward
