Sexy, playful styles ooze from this luxury Miami boutique hotel

There is no pool at Miami\’s Lord Balfour South Beach, but the Atlantic Ocean is just a half block away
Miami Beach’s stylish Ocean Drive is no stranger to luxury hotels, chic boutiques, and swanky restaurants. However, Insiders know to escape the nonstop energy north of 5th Street and head to the cool but posh confines of SoFi (South of 5th), the emerging neighborhood where this luxury boutique Art Deco gem calls home. Renovated and reopened in July 2014, the Lord Balfour South Beach brings sexiness, playfulness, and sophistication through its colorful spaces and chic retro-styles.

Understated Simplicity – On-Property Amenities
The lobby is the true showcase at Lord Balfour – bold, bright, modern, colorful. Beyond that, the luxury hotel eschews an overstuffed menu of amenities for simple effective touches not to mention location (Bass Museum of Art and Lincoln Road Mall are nearby). The cool lobby bar specializes in tea-infused cocktails and a two-for-one happy hour, making for a superb stop before dining out (a restaurant is in the works). Other touches include a palm-shaded courtyard, a small fitness room, beach chairs and umbrellas, and a free continental breakfast.

Stylish, Retro Fun – In-Room Offerings
The playful colors and vibe in the lobby seep into the 64 guest rooms, all appointed with bamboo floors, silver tree-trunk nightstands, British-inspired leather-tufted chairs, and wall-size murals of tattooed models from photographer Justice Howard. Other amenities include iPod docking stations, ETRO bath products, 40-inch flat-screen TVs, soft Corinelli bed linens, and free WiFi.

Cool, playful, stylish, and simple.
