After a yearlong renovation, this Art Deco icon has been reborn as a whimsical, warm 45-suite hideaway. Oversized lamps, animal-print rugs, and gold-leaf side tables have replaced the austere white-on-white minimalism of the hotel's former incarnation, while still providing amenities like walk-in closets and big bathrooms. But the hotel's main attractions are an unbeatable Ocean Drive location and good service: Here, the concierge actually recalls past requests, and bellboys and waiters are always professional. Another draw is the excellent Mediterranean-inspired restaurant La Marea.

When to go: January, after the crowds of Art Basel.
Which room to book: No. 60 is high enough to escape the traffic noise.
