Haute Hotel: South Beach Marriott

    By Kara Franker

    We're highlighting Haute Hotels across the Sunshine State and here's a boutique resort located in the heart of all the action on South Beach. 

    In celebration of their $9 million transformation, the South Beach Marriott is offering a "SOBE Soiree" package for those of you who want to take a dip in an ocean-view infinity-edge pool and plant your toes in the gorgeous white sand. 

    Nestled in the trendy South of Fifth neighborhood, the resort has incredible beachfront access and is located within walking distance to all the shopping, dining and nightlife that you can handle. 

    With rates starting at $269 per night, the "SOBE Soiree" package includes: accommodations, two signature drinks at Deco Blue and complimentary Wi-Fi. 

    The boutique hotel fronts the beach providing endless ocean views from a number of vantage points including the infinity-edge heated pools and Deco Blue Restaurant & Bar. There's also an onsite Starbucks with outdoor terrace and Art Deco lounge, boutique spa, fitness center and access to nearby championship golf. 

    The hotel’s redesign is slated for completion by the end of the year and will transform the guest rooms, suites, elevator lobbies, hotel corridors and the VIP concierge lounge. During the project the hotel will operate as usual with no visual impact on guests, so here's your opportunity to take advantage of a great rate and stay right on the beach!

    If You Go: The resort is located at 161 Ocean Drive in Miami Beach, Fla. The “Sobe Soiree” offer is valid through December 29, 2013. To book visit www.marriottsouthbeach.com or call 1.800.228.9290. Use promotional code YQ1.
