Concierge.com's insider take:
Tucked in the shadow of the better-known Shore Club, the tiny, five-story Townhouse Hotel is a stylish budget gem: The 67 minimalist rooms may be small, but they've been impeccably designed by India Mahdavi with comfy white beds and chocolate-colored sofas. She's also added some fanciful and useful touches, such as a red beach ball tossed on the bed and exercise machines stashed at the end of the hallways. Best of all, the staff is both helpful and affable (a rarity in Miami’s budget boutique hotels). The free Continental breakfast in the lobby is a plus, too—fresh croissants, muffins, and strong coffee—and though there's no pool (just overstuffed red waterbeds on the roof, plus a garden), the beach is just a two-minute walk away.
