Bentley Hotel & Beach Hotel
The Bentley plays it cool, being one of the more understated hotels in miami preferring to focus on its guests than beating its name into the Miami consciousness. Sitting a couple of doors down from the anything-but-quiet TGI Friday’s (one of the two chain establishments on the strip), The Bentley is an attractive boutique hotel for a weekend away. The rooftop pool and Jacuzzi have uninterrupted views of the beach, the hotel has a (rare) dedicated area of the sand a couple of blocks south, and The Bentley performs in the bedroom with elevated platform beds. Plus, every room is a suite and each comes with a sitting area and an equipped kitchen or kitchenette (the better to avoid the hawkers on the Drive). Indeed, this hotel attracts the kind of client that has a substantial amount of cash in the bank but does not feel the need to tell the world about it, and thus adds a touch of class to otherwise flashy Ocean Drive.
