Star rating:
3 star hotel

4.5

Live like a fashion model in this funky modern hotel with minimalist design.

I wasn’t sure what to make of the Townhouse walking up the steps into its austere lobby. My guess would be that the owners have shares in a company that makes white paint, given that it’s everywhere. But don’t be fooled – this is a tidy, minimalist little hotel that’s fun and funky, and a favourite for fashionistas and media types working on their latest video shoots.

Location

Right off Collins Avenue on 20th Street, The Townhouse occupies the same immediate neighbourhood as The Setai and The Shore Club. Shops, bars, clubs, restaurants and the ocean are a beach ball’s throw away.

 

Bedrooms

Talking of beach balls, you’ll find one in every room, providing one of the few splashes of colour other than a vibrant scarlet rug. There’s little furniture, which makes the rooms feel bigger than they actually are, and the basic beds wouldn’t look out of place in an Ikea showroom. But go for a corner “superior” room to give yourself more space than a standard.

Public areas

It’s only been half a year since the hotel’s rooftop lounge opened, but it’s quickly become a popular hangout for Miami Beach’s coolest characters by day and night. With the Atlantic Ocean as a mesmerising backdrop, it’s also a regular choice for photo-shoots by many of America’s leading fashion magazines. At ground level, there’s an appealing conservatory-style lounge packed with sofas and board games.

Eating and drinking

Look across the darkness of the underground BONDST (Bond Street) sushi restaurant and you might just see Ricky Martin or Enrique Iglesias sat in a corner tucking into a tuna roll. But you’ll probably need to make an early reservation because it’s very well rated and always packed. A basic but decent serve-yourself “Parisian breakfast” is included in the rate.

Leisure facilities

No pool or gym, so, curiously, every floor has an item of gym equipment, such as an exercise bike, at the end of each corridor. Guests can rent bicycles from the lobby.

Service

Restaurant and bar staff are very friendly.

Who stays there

The young and the hip.
