Angler'S Miami South Beach, A Kimpton Hotel
Travel Blogs from Miami Beach
... glad it's a short extension. All excited about catching the shows but don't really know what to do at all after that haha. Well one thing is I need to kind of grow out of being a "budget" sort of traveller. I think I have but still will like think twice about say buying drinks or food. But really life is way too short to ruin a travelling experience because of transportation and uncomfortable ...
For anyone who follows my blog, I have to apologise for the lack of posts! We have been in hostels without wifi, so have found it hard to get on here!
Anyways, in Miami now! We arrived a couple of days ago, and the weather is A LOT nicer than San Francisco's. We are in a hostel 2 minutes from the beach, which is made for people who don't enjoy sleeping..
We are now without chloe :( How sad!! We all shed a tear, as the three became ...
When we arrived to Miami we went and found our hostel. It was right on south beach and was in a really beautiful part of town. The first thing we noticed was the cars going along south beach. Very rarely was there not a flash car driving by. the people walking down the streets all had their designer clothes n and made sure everyone could see what label they were wearing. it was a very wealthy part of town. We had a bit of a look around our hostel and ...
... lunch before we had to leave. Bought enough to fill the spaces in Mandy's suitcase created when we gave Brendan all the things we'd brought for him. Mandy ended up with some casual shoes, a pair of boots, two pairs of jeans and a top. What a spunk. With minutes to spare we dashed to the car, and progammed the car rental return at the airport into the GPS. Still a 40 mile dash down freeways though, punctuated by ...
Arriving on US soil looking like a backpacker straight out of Central America, a place where drugs are rife, does lead to multiple questioning and an extensive baggage search, which I can safely say was clean. I'm just gald I didn't have Colombia on my list of countries visited. Anyway, my time in Central America has come to an end and my time in Miami was extremely short lived, but a nice stop over. I had the whole day in Miami en route to Nice, France and decided ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Angler'S Miami South Beach, A Kimpton Hotel Miami Beach
We were looking for a reasonable and quick getaway for the weekend and found the Anglers on line on TripAdvisor. We checked out the Anglers website and found out that they were giving introductory prices as they were still under partial renovation/construction. The Anglers is a new hotel (two buidlings are historic and oh, so, so, so charming) and the other two are in the process of construction and nearly complete. The pool was open, but the kitchen/restaurant was a few weeks from completed. This all did not matter one bit.....the rooms were simply SPECTACULAR...we had a room, with terrace overlooking the pool..complete with balcony. Rooms were detailed with plasmas, inroom speakers (and speaker/volume control in bathroom!!), oh so so so comfy bed, large bathroom, wonderful comfy couch and side chairs, beautiful mirrors, and flooring. It is obvious that special care and attention was paid to creating a special room environment.
I was in search of a boutique hotel to stay in as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday and I found The Angler's Hotel by logging into boutique hotels website but I called the property directly and spoke to Monte for over 20 minutes asking him to describe the hotel and it's ammenities. He was absolutely delightful, patient and more than happy to answer my questions, he sold me on the hotel and promised it was a gem and that both my boyfriend and I would be delighted and indeed we were. It is impeccably clean, the decor is exquisite, the attention to detail exceeds that of any Ritz we have stayed in and none of this would be possible without the staff. Starting with Monte's outstanding customer service which continued with James, who was aware of everything that we could possibly need even before we could ask! Marie and Bryan completed this incredible team with their smiles and follow through. It is indeed a GEM, a MUST see and stay! The details include but are not limited to a welcome note with chocolates, cards with your name and the hotel number and address during your stay, a miniature map of the area, bathrobes laying on what is possibly the most delicious bed, a mini bar and basket with any amenity you could dream of, it is something that you can not go without ever having experienced. This hotel and it's staff gets a perfect score from us, and we are extremely picky and not easy to please. My boyfriend and I fell madly in love with this jewel and thanks to them my gift was unforgettable. THANK YOU GUYS!!!! and I guarantee you we will make time to return at least for a weekend.
Upon arrival at The Angler's, we were greeted curbside, BY NAME, which is always nice. We were escorted to our poolside room, which was very nice and brand new with contemporary decor (42" plasma TV, comfy sofa, microwave, Ipod docking station, DVD player, etc.). On our bed was a little "welcome" gift, which consisted of an Angler's Resort t-shirt for our son (when I made the reservation, I mentioned that we were coming down for just 1 night and that it would be our first night away from our 3 and a half month old baby), a baseball cap with the hotel logo, and a travel kit with very high-end, sample size toiletries. Great surprise, and very thoughtful. The only thing I wish was that the room had a bathtub, but that was a very minor thing for a 1 night stay. The pool and surrounding chairs are NOT as pictured on the website, but we went to the beach on both days, so it barely mattered to us. Not sure how they'll accomodate the 100 or so guests when they fully open and are at capacity, as the pool only holds 20 people, and there are maybe 10 lounge chairs. About the beach, the property is 2 blocks from the beach, and you can bill your lounge chairs and umbrellas to your room, and they will give you a voucher to present at the beach. They also send you on your way with a canvas Angler's tote bag filled with 2 towels (we could've used 4, as they were not that large), 2 bottles of water, and 2 single use packages of sunscreen. The bag and towels are on loan, so you need to return them at the end of each day. We were surprised that there was turndown service, with chocolates on the bed, etc. The next morning, fresh croissants, coffee, tea and juice were delivered to our room, and it was all complimentary. All in all, it was the little touches that we will remember fondly, and we look forward to visiting again when they fully open in the Fall.
Anglers is a real gem. The rooms are very spacious, comfy and so tastefully appointed. The staff was excellent as all our needs were taken care of...reservations, suggestions of sightseeing, tours, etc....we felt completely pampered. The hotel is still being developed, but we stayed in the first of four buildings to be completed. It is a historic building that was completely refurbished to its original luster. Still missing is the restaurant and finished lobby (although the hotel's makeshift lobby could pass for any other top luxury lobby...and works very well). Staff told me that restaurant will be open early fall (soon) as well as entire facility opened in several weeks. Hotel provided coffee and croissants in morning...which is all I need to get my day on South Beach started.
My husband and five colleagues were in town on official government business. They needed a hotel on short notice and they needed 6 rooms. I called the Anglers and their front desk associate (Mark) was the nicest, most helpful man. He continually follwed up without pressuring and really strove to make us happy, as did the manager.
What a wonderful place to stay.close to everything in SOBE .You feel like your at home .Relaxing atmosphereand beautiful surroundings.The staff is very positive and upbeat with the smile with every request.So put your feet up and they will handle the rest.
Fine settimana del mio compleanno
Che posto meraviglioso per alloggiare. Vicino a tutto quanto a South Beach. Sembra di stare a casa propria. Atmosfera rilassante e dintorni bellissimi. Il personale è molto positivo e allegro con un sorriso sempre pronto. Mettetevi comodi ché penseranno a tutto loro.
The staff made us feel so welcome, I felt like I was home with friends and family. The hotel is brand spanking new and the rooms and public areas are the epitomy of classic S. Beach chic ++++.....lush woods, 5 speakers in each room (including large 42" plasmas and separate volume control in each bathroom-my husband gushed about that). The bedding was scrumptious as our King size bed was nestled between two niches which made me feel like I was back in our home (we have a simmilar configuration). Everthing from the luxurious couches, coffee table and marble countertops to bamboo floor and balcony overlooking the pool added to the feel of the hotel. I even loved the several art-deco and other large coffee table books that were in our room...it seemed that EVERYTHING was so well thought out....even the luscious choclates at turndown presented in a cute sash....My husband loved his amenity gift (a brown "Anglers" t-shirt) and I took home the box that it came in (I loved the presentation). For breakfast, the hotel included room service of coffee and fresh croissants and pastries...ohhhh what a treat!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everthing from the presentation to the the delicious preserves were scruptious...I was a Queen in my robe, drinking coffee and relaxing on couch with newspapper...ahhhh...life is good.
We ADORE this place! The Angler's boasts an amazingly attentive and intuitive staff; they completely rolled out the red carpet for my fiance and I during our stay. Trust their nightlife and restaurant recommendations- they will not steer you wrong! The hotel itself is so chic and cool, yet extremely warm and inviting. Posh orchids and coffee table books in your guest suite of celebrities with great lighting and new furnishings everywhere! Simply gorgeous rooms with dreamy beds and all the amenties to make you feel like you are right at home! We especially enjoyed the flat panel TV and the personal I-pod docking station. You can even listen to your favorite show in the shower with the surround system they have going on in the suites.The Angler's is right off of Washington, putting it only 1.5 blocks form the beach. You are in walking distance from all the hottest attractions South Beach has to offer!
