Amazing Mid Beach Miami hotels

3 Brilliant Top-Rated Mid Beach Miami Hotels! (2023)

Mid Beach is like the shy little sister of South Beach Miami; it has the same beauty and charm but is not quite as outgoing and loud as the glamorous South Beach!

If you love Miami Beach and like the vibe and nightlife but prefer not to have it right outside your doorstep, Mid Beach is probably a perfect place to stay.

You will find some of the best hotels in Miami Beach in this area, with guest rooms shielded from the South Beach party zone and many places that have an outdoor pool, even though they are minutes from the Atlantic Ocean!

I have stayed here for months, and I love it! You have supermarkets, shops, restaurants, and cafes minutes away, uber on your app, and the trolley for venturing north or south in a breeze.

From Mid Beach, it takes 5-6 minutes on the free trolley to get to South Beach, 20 minutes to walk, 20 minutes to drive or Uber to Downtown Miami, and no more than 60 seconds to stroll down to the beach!

3 Great Mid Beach Miami Hotels!

Even though the heart of South Beach is the area most famous for its iconic design and art deco architecture, shopping, restaurants, bars, and nightlife, you can find all this on a somewhat smaller scale in Mid Beach, too.

There are top-rated hotels and hostels across the price range, and entertainment is readily available short distances away, but you don’t need to hear the buzzing city all the way into your room!

Here are three top-rated and really nice places for you to stay in Mid Beach, all within seconds of the equally famous Miami Beach!

Budget: Generator Mid Beach Miami

The Generator is one of the top rated Mid Beach Miami hotels that also has dorms.

Although nothing really is “budget” in Miami Beach, Generator on Miami Beach is a mix of a hostel and a hotel is one of the closest options that you find in Miami Beach!

I have stayed here for longer periods of time, and it really is a great option in Miami Beach to keep a bigger part of your travel budget for other fun things you want to do in Miami.

Don’t be fooled by the hostel label; everything about this place is hotel’ish.

The foyer is furnished like a living room: a chill pillow room, an in-house bar, and a super charming restaurant called Hoja.

There is also an amazing backyard with a pool and seating areas where you can relax during the daytime and evening.

Things To Do In Miami

Around Mid Beach is not where you find most of the sights, attractions, and things to do in Miami, but it is not far from anything!

Just outside these hotels, you have supermarkets, restaurants, and bars, as well as some shopping areas like the Faena Bazaar.

In this mini-mall, you find a variety of high-end designer brands and a fantastic cafe with great coffee and super healthy breakfast and lunch options.

And of course the beach!

A few minute’s drive or trolley ride away is South Beach, with the famous Art Deco District, a plethora of restaurants, shopping on Collins Avenue, Muscle Beach, and Nikki Beach Club for drinks and chill!

The elegant Versace Mansion is also in South Beach, where you can come for an exquisite lunch or dinner (or even stay there, it is also a hotel).

Ocean Drive is a fun place both day and night with restaurants and galleries, but it really comes to life when the sun sets and the neon lights spread across the unique architecture and ambiance you find here.

Miami International Airport is 17 km distance away (11 miles) from Mid Beach Miami, and you will be living right in the centre of Miami Beach.

You will be able to travel easily both ways, to South Beach or up to the tranquil North Beach on adventures along the Miami Beach boardwalk that follow the beach all the way.

Take the bike!
