Art Basel Miami Beach Hotels

Where it's all happening...

Art Basel Hotels Miami: Beaux Arts Hotel

Art Basel and Miami Art Week are one of the most sought after weeks to be in Miami. Where to stay will depend largely on your preferences and budget. Hotels in close proximity of the Miami Beach Convention Center where the main Art Basel Exhibition show takes place are in high demand during this time, but with so many events and satellite fairs scattered around Miami and Miami Beach plus a fairly good shuttle / trolley system to get around, your options for convenient accomodation during Art Basel are vast.

Top picks within walking distance of the Miami Beach Convention Center are Miami South Beach Hotels MapThe Betsy and the newly refreshed Miami South Beach Hotels Map W South Beach. These hotels are not only within easy reach of the main Art Basel Exhibition Hall but also host many high-caliber art exhibitions of their own private collections and are buzzing with activity, parties, private soirees and the like. You will definitely have a front-row seat to everything Basel from these hotels, another plus is their oceanfront locations if you manage to squeeze some sun and surf among all the happenings.

The Basel vibe spreads to Miami Beach where we also find some gems, in the up-and-coming Faena District Miami South Beach Hotels MapFaena Hotel and Casa Faena will also be centers of activity, normally Faena hosts its very own Faena Festival opening to coincide with Art Basel Miami Beach in addition to their on-going art and cultural programs in a number of superb venues which are architectural art icons on their own right. (Faena Festival has not been confirmed for 2021.)

And next-door the Miami South Beach Hotels MapMiami Beach EDITION will go all out at their renowned party hub BASEMENT that houses a nightclub, a bowling alley and an ice-skating rink and plans an unrivaled schedule of events and beach concerts for Art Basel week.

Art Basel and Miami Art week extend from Miami Beach to the mainland where many events will be happening at the up-and-coming neighborhoods of Mid-town, the Design District and Wynwood Arts District. To be close to this action there is one superb choice, Miami South Beach Hotels MapHyde Suites Midtown which puts you right in the heart of the edgy and alternative fairs of these hip neighborhoods and the high-octane designer shopping and fashion mecca of the Design District.

Closer to Downtown, the Miami South Beach Hotels MapHotel Beaux Arts Miami inside the Marriott Marquis is a top luxury boutique choice with its own special exhibition in conjunction with Art Miami.

If retreating to peaceful and relaxing surroundings after a day of Basel pandemonium and art fairs is more your style, consider the Miami South Beach Hotels MapSetai, which is close enough to the action but a world away, or the Miami South Beach Hotels MapMandarin Oriental in private but convenient Brickell Key.

Also for a quieter scene consider some of the areas in Surfside, Sunny Isles or Coconut Grove, which are still within easy reach of all the action and may even be easier on the wallet!

Rates for hotels during Art Basel not surprisingly skyrocket to stratospheric levels. Some of the most popular hotels book a year in advance, so needless to say, reserving your hotel as early as possible is a must during this time.

Please be aware of the many extra fees you may encounter and check what is included in your quoted rate.

Most hotels charge a "Resort Fee" which can run from $20 - $40 per day extra and cover things like beach chairs and umbrellas (yes, seriously). Parking and valet services can tack on an extra $35-$50 per day. Cleaning fees in the case of apartments and rentals are billed per stay, $100 - $150 so consider this if only staying for a couple of days.

Ocean Drive Action: The Betsy South Beach Hotel Category: 4.5 Star

Betsy Hotel South Beach

Miami South Beach Hotels Map This beautiful and luxurious boutique hotel on Ocean Drive reminiscent of a grand colonial estate has recently undergone a complete renovation that merged two properties, the original colonial Betsy Ross Hotel and the adjacent art deco Carlton Hotel. The two wings are connected by "The Orb", a giant beach ball perched four stories up in the air, a public art piece of its own which serves as a seamless transition from the very distinct styles of both historic hotels. The Betsy is more than a charming space, they have a busy monthly calendar and regularly are host to many cultural endeavors, art exhibits, literary events, string-quartet concerts, etc. Even though in the midst of South Beach's frenzied strip, the vibe here is subdued and refined.

The Betsy is home to several permanent public art installations and outdoor sculptures. The exhibitions are accessible, throughout the lobby, staircases, and hallways 365 days a year.

For Miami Art Week 2021, eight new exhibits curated by Betsy co-owner Lesley Goldwasser have been announced and feature photography works by Jim Krantz, Seydou Keïta, Tamary Kudita, Bunny Yeager, Andy Sweet, and Alessandro Sarno.

Also during Miami Art Week 2021, and commissioned in partnership with the City of Miami Beach, the work of award-winning conceptual mixed media artist Monika Bravo will be exhibited on The Betsy Orb and into adjacent environs.

The Betsy's annual property-wide opening takes place on December 2, 2021, from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm, hosted by co-owners Jonathan Plutzik and Lesley Goldwasser (exhibitions curator). These artists and artist reps will be present: Alessandro Sarno, James Danzinger (for Jim Krantz and Seydou Keita), Ed Christin (for Bunny Yeager), Ellen Sweet Moss (for Andy Sweet), Ray Tenorio, and Monika Bravo. The event is free. More on this year's Art Basel programs at the Betsy.
