From the boombox in the room to the nightclubs thumping nearby, The Chelsea Hotel in South Beach is aimed squarely at the party set. Rooms are on the snug side and spare with the furnishings, with the sound machine echoing off walls papered over with rattan and dressed with gothic touches like black medallion-print drapes and chandeliers tucked under dark veils.
The bleached deco building sits on Washington Avenue, a relatively quieter road roughly two blocks away from the rollicking tourist bar scene that goes through the night on Ocean Drive. Happy hour takes place on front and rear patios dressed with cushy lounge chairs and bordered by palm trees.
On the corner diagonal the hotel is the palatial, Spanish-style Wolfsonian Museum, which holds an excellent collection of art and interior design from the Industrial Revolution through World War II. The beach is about a 5-minute walk away.
