Inside South Beach's Breakwater Hotel

Earlier this year, Vogue magazine named Miami one of THE places to travel in 2011. And if you're looking for hotels to stay at, we've got plenty. Here's the new Breakwater Hotel on South Beach’s historic Ocean Drive. The upscale oceanfront boutique resort has officially reopened its doors and on the heels of a multi-million-dollar renovation, the property somehow captures old school SoBe with an ultra chic modern twist; all while avoiding the cheesy-tourist like clichés one Miami resident might hate about an Ocean Drive hotel.

In spite of a long series of renovations, the hotel’s décor has remained true to the classic Art Deco styling and color palette
The hotel's rooftop terrace became legendary in the 1980s when it was immortalized in the popular Calvin Klein advertisement for Obsession perfume featuring supermodel Kate Moss and was shot by Bruce Weber.
An Art Deco property built in 1939 by architect Anton Skislewicz, Hotel Breakwater most recently underwent several years of upgrades under the direction of designer Stephen B. Jacobs
Regional Hotel Director Axel Gasser says of his accommodations, “We aim to provide our guests with an unfiltered lifestyle experience that goes beyond anything tangible."
