With energies and uncertainties at an all-time high, we’ve never needed an escape more than right now. Since we can’t plan a European escape at the moment, it might be time to take in our nearby tropical neighbors to get that vacation fix. Even though Miami and The Beaches might’ve paused their Hotel Months program, there are still plenty of resorts and stays offering killer deals for that much-needed getaway. Take a look:

Miami Beach

Hotel Victor – An Art Deco gem on Ocean Drive that was built in 1937, Hotel Victor is a quiet oasis amid the hustle and bustle of South Beach. Epic rooftop pool deck overlooking the ocean is already accessible, and its spa is re-opening July 1st.
THE DEAL: Current pricing for standard rooms starts at $129+/night including breakfast, compared to a typical rack rate of $195+/night excluding breakfast.

The Stiles / Essex House – Two Art Deco-evoking locations a stone’s throw away from each other on Collins, both powered by the same team behind The Clevelander (although nowhere near as loud). Both are boutique and intimate, with serene pools and anti-tourist atmospheres.
THE DEAL: Currently having a 72-hour flash sale (June 15th – 18th) for $72/per night rooms. A 50% discount for stays until September 30th.


Nautilus by Arlo – A gorgeous, retro hotel right on the sand with a colossal pool and beach access. Their F&B program is top notch and so is the intimacy of their suites.
THE DEAL: The “Life’s a Beach” offer has rooms starting at $99 per night (usually $150). You also get up to $20 cash rewards per night and a daily $25 food and beverage credit.


JW Marriot Miami Turnberry – This one’s a perfect option for the restless family. When this resort opened last year, it literally made a splash–thanks to its epic waterpark, Tidal Cove. The hotel is a great stay, too, with endless amenities and an away-from-civilization feel.
THE DEAL: Current pricing starts at $215/night, compared to a typical rack rate of $299/night. Rate includes: Free admission for up to 4 guests to Tidal Cove, the resort’s water park, Free golf play for kids 15 and under after 2:30PM, and a Complimentary shuttle to Aventura Mall.

The Keys

Cheeca Lodge – A cornerstone of the Islamorada community since 1946, Cheeca Lodge & Spa is set on a 27-acre private estate, boasting 214 guest rooms, oceanfront suites and bungalows, and its signature feature is the classic 525 ft. wooden fishing pier.
THE DEAL: The resort’s Florida Resident Rate offers 20% nightly rates with an additional 10% off all resort purchases including restaurants, spa, signature store and water sports.
