Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

1 Hotel South Beach
1 Hotel South Beach is a gleaming, high-end boutique hotel on Miami Beach, with its own rooftop pool and 600 feet of exclusive, pristine white sandy beach.
COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach
The COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach is an Art Deco hotel with sweeping views out over the Atlantic Ocean, a spa, and delicious dining and drinking venues.
SLS Hotel
Bringing an LA vibe to South Beach and the cool kids just can't get enough of it. 
The Townhouse
The Townhouse pulls off the homely feel with chic aplomb...
Sagamore
Not even Hercule Poirot could find a stray finger print here. The Sagamore is immaculate...
Chelsea Hotel
Stylish yet ever so slightly budget, this hotel is a favourite of young models.
Delano Hotel
A new version of South Beach's original icon.
Soho Beach House
Glamorous members' only hotel with a sophisticated vibe.
The Raleigh
A regular photo shoot location and a hang-out for locals. Stylish, and it knows it...
The Shore Club
Everybody wants a piece of the Shore Club. It is one of the pillars of Miami decadence...
Catalina Hotel
Excellently located, the Catalina is a subtle retreat perched beside the big boys of the South Beach Group.
Whitelaw Hotel
The Whitelaw has the most electric 'we know we're here to party' feel of any hotel on SoBe...
James Royal Palm
Stunningly restored with a new feel as laid back as the amenities and service are sharp. 
The Setai
Number one hotel in Miami if you are a high-roller...
Clinton Hotel
The Clinton looks after shoppers and nightclubbers alike, not forgetting dream therapy for the broke husband...
Pelican
This Diesel-inspired, 30-themed room hotel is the most original in Miami. It oozes flair.
Sanctuary
An oasis of calm style, the Sanctuary is a stroll away from the sexy fun of Collins Avenue...
Biltmore Hotel
Follow Bill Clinton to the Biltmore hotel and revel in luxury under hand-painted vaulted ceilings.
The Victor Hotel
Jaques Garcia's jellyfish-themed boutique hotel draws in the celebs and their followers...
Waldorf Towers
A modern Art-Deco design together with the promise of absolute Miami fun makes Woldorf Towers an ideal location for a hair-letting-down-session...
Blue Moon
A tranquil, picturesque hotel located in the heart of Miami Beach, just seconds from the beach...
Circa 39
Circa 39 is a cheeky Art Deco establishment near acres of free sand...
National
The National talks a big SoBe game with perhaps the best-looking pool in town...
Fisher Island Club
Take your time to zone out on your own little island...
Astor Hotel
The classic Art Deco design oozes understated style and draws in an exclusive crowd...
St. Regis Bal Harbour
Opulence Miami-style - sell the family silver, you'll never want to leave. 
The Viceroy
Don't wander about the Viceroy under the influence; the interiors are trippy, to say the least, with an outdoor living space that's got more than a little Alice in Wonderland about it...
The Mercury South Beach
Mercury rising! Despite its hotness, The Mercury has remained unpretentious; its no-frills approach to accommodation has ensured a consistent crowd of cool, couldn't-care-less types...
St. Augustine
Hotel St. Augustine may look like a spa, but it's not (the clue's in the name); it is, in fact, a hedonistic hotel with clean, comfortable rooms, spa treatments galore, and a quiet location that's perfectly positioned for a little R&R.
Lords South Beach
The first truly gay hotel slap in the middle of South Beach...
Hotel Ocean
Unassuming but comfortable, Hotel Ocean does what it says on the tin with practical rooms for affordable prices. Surprisingly, perhaps, the rooms are stylish, too. A no-brainer...
Gansevoort Miami Beach
Gansevoort Miami Beach knows what beach bunnies want, and gives it to them by the bucket-and-spade load with a ludicrously oversized beach club and a breathtaking rooftop pool and bar. And that's before you even step a well-heeled foot inside.
Fontainebleau
Most will recognise the Fontainebleau from Goldfinger, but non-film fanatics will still appreciate the hotel for its extremely well-appointed rooms and more awe-inspiring amenities than you can shake a gold finger at...
Epic Hotel
The Epic certainly lives up to its name with epic interiors that are remembered long after your stay; Asian restaurant Zuma finishes things off fabulously...
Conrad Miami
The jewel in Downtown's crown, Conrad Miami has views, interiors and amenities to die for. Check in and check it out.
Chesterfield Hotel
Happy hour at the in-house bar isn't the only reason to stay at The Chesterfield; clean, comfortable rooms and free airport transfers clinch the deal.
Betsy
As the name suggest, the Betsy is all about cutesy chic, with seekers of solitude descending on its quiet Ocean Drive location for peace, quiet and creature comforts galore.
Bentley Hotel & Beach Hotel
Like a cool kid who doesn't have to brag, The Bentley is one of Miami's most understated stays - but doesn't disappoint with creature comforts galore and a rooftop pool (a must in this sun-soaked city of sin).
A chat with Ecclestone Square Hotel’s Olivia Byrne
As she prepares to take on the role of company director at the Ecclestone Square Hotel, Olivia Byrne sits down with Hg2 to share her best bits of London.
