Florida doesn’t lack for options when it comes to getting away, but why hit the Turnpike when so many leisure options are right here in our very own backyard? Summer is a time of deals and packages at the city’s top hotels and we’ve got five staycations to consider that are good for the soul and easy on the wallet.
W South Beach
With its night haunts and restaurants, the W needs no introduction. The hotel’s Sunsational Savings package offers visitors a fourth night stay for free, a food and beverage credit for $50 during your stay and an upgrade to a better room upon check-in (based on availability). Deal runs through Oct. 28. DETAILS Use promotional code ZS4 when booking online or via telephone at 877.822.0000. Rates from $469 per night. 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.938.3000, wsouthbeach.com
Art Deco touches, a new Michael Schwartz-helmed restaurant and a pool that was once the setting for Esther Williams movies makes The Raleigh hard to resist. The property’s Raleigh Day through Sept. 30 offers travelers 20 percent off the best available rate, no resort fees whatsoever and a $25 food and beverage credit throughout their stay. DETAILS Book through raleighhotel.com/specials. Rates from $327 per night. 1775 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.534.6300, raleighhotel.com
SLS South Beach
Lenny Kravitz designed the penthouse suites. Its pool parties are by invite only. And the place has the restaurants Katsuya and Bazaar on-site. Yep, it’s safe to say that the SLS has chic five-star well covered. Sunshine State locals get to take advantage of all these creature comforts with the Florida Resident special, which includes an overnight stay for $295 per night, a $75 food and beverage credit, complimentary valet and an upgrade if available. DETAILS Book online or call 855.757.7623 and mention promo code FLRESIDENT. 1701 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.674.1701, slshotels.com/southbeach
The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort
Lusting for luxury? With its Yabu Pushelberg design marked by black marble floors with gold clusters and a hallway of mirrors, The St. Regis screams glamour. And it’s just a few steps away from the retail excess of Bal Harbour Shops. This summer, the hotel is offering four different specials, but our personal favorite is the Family Memories to Last a Lifetime which includes complimentary Kids Club access for up to two children, free meals for the little ones at Atlantico and Fresco with the purchase of one adult entree, a 50 percent off discount on an Oasis Cabana or Ocean Front Day Villa (based on availability) and a $100 Family Fun credit (through Aug. 31) at the resort. DETAILS Call 855.882.8217 and mention promotion code LFR. Rates from $579 per night. 9703 Collins Ave., Bal Harbour, 305.993.3300, stregisbalharbour.com
Morgans Hotel Group
Delano, Shore Club or Mondrian. The Morgans Hotel Group is offering extras at all its properties this summer. At the Delano, guests can enjoy two complimentary welcome cocktails at the hotel’s Rose Bar, while the Mondrian and Shore Club are offering 20 percent off all their respective spa treatments. Additionally, all hotels are offering an upgrade upon check in. Rates from $399 (Delano), $329 (Mondrian) and $299 (Shore Club) per night.
