Angler Hotel South Beach Miami

BC and Andrea’s Spring Break 2015 roadtrip included the ultimate beach- South Beach, Miami. The day before arriving we scored a last minute deal through Kimpton Hotel’s Karma rewards program.  Hotels prices in Florida during Spring Break are ridiculous! This last minute deal made it reasonable.


Kimpton has 3 hotels in Miami- we stayed at the Angler Hotel– a boutique hotel 2 blocks from the beach. It was perfect. I opted to upgrade us to a terrace room which was on the first floor right by the pool.

Luckily, the Angler is not a college Spring Break party hotel so it was just normal people and families that didn’t go drunk skinny dipping at 3am.

Once we arrived and checked in it was 2pm and we were starving for lunch.  There is an inexpensive, tiny taco shop called Paquitos on Washington Avenue, virtually across the street from the Angler.  Highly rated on Yelp, we went for it.

Chips and queso:

I had the special taco with chicken. I forgot to take photos until it was partially eaten.  Oops!

The best thing about Paquitos was the salsa bar. 6 different homemade salsas yours for the choosing. Get the green one, it is the best! A tasty and frugal lunch spot.

Also near the Angler Hotel is DASH, the store owned by the Kardashians.  No Kardashian sightings though.

Of course, the main attraction is not the Kardashians but South Beach! Gorgeous white sand and beautiful bronzed bodies- not mine though- I’m still quite pasty Smile

After our walk/tanning session we returned to the Angler for wine hour.  From 5-6pm all Kimpton hotels host a wine hour with free white and red wine. Sometimes there is beer, sometimes snacks, always a lot of chatting and games.

I sat outside in the gorgeous courtyard.

(Side note: Kimpton also lets you borrow bikes for free to ride around town. Awesome!)

BC challenged me to a game of Connect Four.  I was red! Winner! All of a sudden BC didn’t want to play anymore Smile

I’ve written about Kimpton Hotels before- Baltimore, Philadelphia, Alexandria, and Portland. It is my favorite hotel chain by far. Sign up for their rewards program and the next time you need a last minute hotel in a big city, see if they have any deals available! Save a buck, get a fabulous hotel experience!
