5 Reasons to Stay at the Miami Beach EDITION Hotel

The Miami Beach EDITION provides modern luxury in an iconic setting. We asked American Express Travel Ambassadors Aundre Larrow, Brian Cason, Deejay Forte and Karston Tannis to share their thoughts on what makes this trendy property a must-stay for anyone heading to Miami Beach.


It's an Art Deco paradise.

"One of the things that makes Miami Beach special is all the Art Deco design; there is rich architectural history there that you can't really find anywhere else. So many elements at Miami Beach EDITION call back to that era; this elevates the experience, giving you a deeper connection to the city—you’re not staying in 'just another hotel’. It’s delightful to see how the local character and charm was thoughtfully incorporated into the design of the hotel. Walking in was a heavenly experience, an immediate stress reliever."

The Tropicale pool and lounge is an idyllic scene.

"The centerpiece of the entire property is definitely the main pool area. Even with the EDITION's private access to the beach, we didn't feel the need to venture away from the pools, drinks and lounge chairs. We loved escaping to the ‘sandbox,’ a secluded area with shaded hammocks, a ping pong table and soft sand to relax in.

From a photography perspective, it is almost impossible to get a bad shot of the pool and the iconic diving platform; every shot felt like a winner."

The rooms and suites are the perfect place to relax or entertain.

"Our suite [the Bungalow Suite] had a balcony, direct access to the pool, two floors and plenty of room to entertain. It became the trip's HQ. This is the kind of room that lends itself well to celebrations or group trips; we easily jumped between the activities around the pool to hosting low-key gatherings inside the suite."

Center of Miami Beach nightlife.

"The EDITION has everything you need and nothing you don’t. We knew we were somewhere special when locals were lining up to get into Basement [the EDITION'S dancefloor/bowling alley/ice rink combo] and our friends in the area kept insisting on meeting us at the hotel.

There is so much to see and do in Miami, but the EDITION seemed like the place to be. We basically spent our entire time in the hotel and on the beach, and did not feel guilty at all."

Le Labo amenities add a special touch.

"It's a small detail, but it’s one of our strongest memories. The EDITION's signature scent is unique and soothing, and it felt like it followed us wherever we went on the property.

We still have some of the lotion bottles from the trip and whenever we open them, the feeling of walking into the lobby for the first time comes rushing back."
