Unlike her New York City and Los Angeles siblings, including the racy MePa exhibitionist, little sis The Standard Miami Beach is altogether more demure.
Tucked away from SoBe shenanigans on the Venetian Way, she’s more pamper princess than party queen, but just one foot inside her revamped Art Deco frontage is enough to convince that this spa starlet has still inherited the family flair for swish style (think Scandi woods, macrame wool walls and quirky Hans Wegner rocking chairs) and friendly service, plus a particular aptitude for flop-worthy facilities and to-sigh-for treatments – in-tub mud scrub, anyone?
All of the Shaker-chic rooms feature white-washed walls, cushy beds and organic amenities, but take a Bath Terrace billet for bonus outdoor soaker and garden views. By day, lay by the Biscayne Bay-fronted sound pool, get hydro-haven hedonistic in the aroma steam room and cedar sauna, or hike your leg over a Warby Parker bicycle and cruise down to the nearby Miami Beach boardwalk. Come evening, keep it cool at Med-organic Lido resto then take your post-sup sip by the outdoor fire lounge. Hot, or what?
