Located on Ocean Drive (the good end), Tides is just across the road from the beach and within walking distance of all the places a first time visitor should go.

Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

There are 45 suites at Tides, all with an open plan bedroom and living space, as well as ocean views. All are neutrally decorated in golds and beige, with added touches such as tables that look like tree trunks and zebra skin rugs giving them an edge. Gold mirrors and flashes of white around the hotel add a dose of pure Miami. As with all Miami hotels, mod cons are a plenty, and Tides has free Wi-Fi and IPod docks.

The outdoor Le Marea restaurant is renowned throughout Miami, not least because of its dramatic ocean views. The Coral Bar serves delicious cocktails and there is also a fine dining restaurant.

Although no spa at Tides, treatments can be arranged in room and there is a gym. The beach is also just a stone's throw away.

Why we love it

The Tides is perfect for a first time visitor to Miami - close to the beach and many of Miami's sights, yet not all about the party so there is a chance for down time.
