Lord Balfour South Beach is a low-rise art deco property with an edgy look and a cheeky sense of humor. Renovated in late 2012, the property sits on Ocean Drive in the now-popular SoFi (South of Fifth) district, known for its prime restaurants and South Pointe Park. It's not right in the heart of the Miami nightlife, but top clubs like Cameo and Mansion on Washington Avenue are within a 10-minute drive.
The hotel is inspired by the early-20th century British prime minister, Lord Balfour -- a quirky character known for his narcissism and wit. A nod to that heritage is evident in the artworks (our favorite: the silver butler hands holding up mirrors built into the wall) and the tea-infused cocktails (named after landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London).
Historical references aside, the property's interiors are funky and modern, dotted with vanity mirrors, illuminated quotations, wall murals and ceiling-high images of tattooed women.
More of that modern décor is evident in the bedrooms, with pleasant views of either the palm courtyard or Ocean Drive. All are decorated in fresh South Beach style, with bamboo floors, leather lounge chairs and gilded tree trunks for side tables. The TVs are a whopping 40 inches in size, there is an iPad in every room and a rainfall shower in the bathrooms. The enormous signature suite comes with a separate living room -- complete with leather sofa bed -- and designer lighting.
There is an $18 nightly resort fee that includes daily continental breakfast, Wi-Fi access, beach chair and umbrella rentals.
