If the all-night discos and blingy hotels of South Beach are your thing, you’re best advised to give the new Soho Beach House a miss. But if a chic but relaxed tropical retreat is your speed, then this may be the place you call home in Miami.
We’ve stayed in many beach hotels in Miami and South Beach, but the recently renovated Soho Beach House is a truly unique experience. The place excludes a stylish but tatty charm that conjures up images of Bogey in Key Largo, and it lacks the pretension and attitude that plagues the boutiques farther down the beach. Walk into the lobby of some of the more well-known SoBe boutique hotels and you feel obliged to be part of the scene; at the Soho Beach House you feel as though you’ve escaped it.
