Slumber in Absolute Am-blue-ance
Just the Pretty: After a complete makeover of the former Tudor Hotel, Dream South Beach opened in June 2011. So it still has a lot of brand-spanking-newness to complement its sun-sparkled location -- and to the delight of guests. Partying snowbirds might fly up to the hotel's rooftop lounge, Highbar, to sky-bathe within breezes of the Atlantic.
Suite, Suite Design: Modernized '70s cool. Designer Michael Czysz and his team deserve props for creating imaginative and arguably fashionista-fun hotel rooms. The calm-inducing am-blue-ance of the Junior Suite (pictured above) is anything but generic, while the lounge of the Penthouse Suite (pictured lower) exudes bright, almost Bohemian chic.
