The Cadillac Hotel in Miami Beach

There are so many places to stay in Miami Beach. It’s overwhelming trying to choose the perfect place for your perfect vacation! I went hunting and went through so many hotels. It was a process and honestly took me a couple months. But I landed on the Cadillac Hotel and my heart was set. I had found the best place to stay in Miami Beach. For more details on booking your own stay at The Cadillac, go here!

The Cadillac Hotel is sitting a little North of South Beach, Miami. South Beach has all the crazy parties and clubs. I liked staying a bit away from it. I wanted to get a little bit of both – relaxing vaycay and a walk away from party central.

Right across the street from the Cadillac was a convenience store that sold coffee, snacks, advil, etc. Things that you might have needed but forgot to bring. It was super handy to have that place nearby to the hotel. There were also some cafes and restaurants directly across the street too!

Now, let’s dive deeper into the beauty that is the Cadillac Hotel.

The Cadillac only offers valet parking, which can be pricy. But it was nice having the car parked and brought to you everyday. Once I stepped out of the car and walked up the steps through the front door, my brain officially went into vacation mode.

Inside I was greeted with beautiful glowing chandeliers, detailed ceiling decor, and lots of potted green plants which I loved. Everything was so luxurious and mesmerizing.

My jaw was to the floor when I walked in. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I wasn’t expecting this.

Every day I woke up in a dream. Usually when on vacation, one is usually extremely excited to start their day and get out of their room. In this case, I was so excited to wake up to this room, and come back to this room.

I urge you to watch the full room tour here:

I don’t know what place was my favorite. My room, or the pool…..

The Pool

The Cadillac Hotel’s beautiful pool

Surrounded by lush palm trees, the pool area is stunning. And if you know me, you know that I judge hotel’s by how nice their pool is. It is a beautiful spot, day and night.

There is also a second pool, the Adult’s Pool. So if you don’t want any kids nearby and just wanna bond with some fellow 18+, the Cadillac has got you. Honestly there weren’t many kids there at all, and the main pool is just so gorgeous I couldn’t bring myself to leave it. Best place to stay in Miami Beach to relax and swim.

Or walk up these stairs to a beautiful outdoor restaurant called the Bungalow.

The Bungalow

Beach themed, tables in the sand, twinkling likes connected to the palm trees; it is absolutely stunning. They also offer a cocktail served in a real coconut. Super cute and aesthetic and really gives “I’m on a luxurious vacation, don’t bother me” vibes.

Isn’t it so beautiful? A dream lunch spot.

The Breakfast – Donna Mare Trattoria

Donna Mare is their main fabulous hotel restaurant. Breakfast is served here, lunch is served here, dinner, everything. Decorated with their signature potted green plants, the atmosphere is fresh and inviting.

For breakfast, you can order off the menu and get a $25 dollar special that comes with a good amount of food, or you can buy the all you can eat buffet for $25 which has all that food and more, plus you can eat as much as you want. It comes with coffee and orange juice and it is overall such a great deal!! Food was delicious and made for a great start to the day.

My $25 all you can eat breakfast!

Peep the picture below to see all the foods they offer with that great breakfast option.

The Final Thought

I LOVED staying at the Cadillac Hotel. It was luxurious and gorgeous and the perfect Miami Getaway. A 10 minute drive to South Beach, or 30 minute walk, it was in an ideal location. The shops and cafes around it were great and helpful, and their personal beach was a door away.

After all the stress and the searching and not finding the perfect hotel, I can say now that I really did find the best place to stay.
