Miami Beach Travel Guide
The $1 million refurb on the South Beach's historic Savoy Hotel is now completed and the ready to once again dazzle guests who come for the affordable Ocean Drive accommodations.
Made up of two pre-World War II properties built in 1935, the 75 one-and-two-bedroom suite oceanfront boutique hotel is in the middle of the colorful Art Deco District in the South of Fifth section, steps away from cafes, shops, and Ocean Drive's nightlife.
The renovation was geared towards "guest-focused enhancements" with guest rooms and suites receiving flat-panel televisions, new furniture, linens and sofa beds. A fresh coat of paint to the whole hotel significantly brightens up the spot and the pool area is now a prettier place to profile.
Starting on June 1, Miami visitors can try out a King room at Dream South Beach, which is now in its second year, for $199/night, which is slightly higher than last year's opening rate of $149/night. But we're going to assume that after a year, they've had time to tidy up the edges and can get away with charging more.
As a bonus to the $199/night rate, the hotel is also throwing in continental breakfast for two, a bottle of Perrier Jouet champagne, and chocolate-covered strawberries for an additional $50 fee. Which is another way of saying the room is actually $250/night, but with some light nibbles thrown in that still won't really fill you up so you'll just end up heading to Tudor House for dinner and drinks anyway.
