When a standard room simply won’t cut it, Miami’s already luxurious hotels come through with over the top digs—and price tags to match, of course. Here’s a peek inside Miami’s most sought after suites. We’re talking penthouses with floor-to-ceiling windows, rooftop pools, marble bathrooms and panoramic views stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the downtown skyline.
6. W South Beach
The W South Beach has a collection of VIP suites, but none is as glamorous as the E-WOW Penthouse. The 2,200 square-foot, two-story, three-bedroom suite is outfitted with king-sized beds and four balconies with unrivaled views of the Atlantic Ocean. The modern-luxe furnishings are complimented with fresh orchids, a Nespresso machine and smart technology throughout. Add to this a rooftop deck with private plunge pool, outdoor shower and grill, and you’ve found your home away from home. E-WOW comes with all the perks of a true VIP, including personalized concierge service, guaranteed entry into W’s nightclub Wall, access to the Bass Museum across the street and a farewell gift on the night of your departure.
Rates from $12,000 per night.

9. Fisher Island Club Hotel
Forget 90210. This year, Bloomberg ranked Fisher Island’s exclusive 33109 zip code as the wealthiest in America with the average island resident income a cool $2.5 million.

Named for Rosemary Vanderbilt, the cottage oozes 1920s charm with limestone floors, French patterns, a European kitchen and private walled courtyard with a jacuzzi.
