The newly renovated National Hotel Miami Beach has been selected as the new host hotel for the 2014 Winter Party Festival. The move to a new host hotel became necessary because the original host hotel, Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach, is not expected to reopen in time for the Festival due to construction delays with hotel renovations. After absorbing our room block, The National Hotel is completely sold out for Winter Party Festival. Additional hotel options are listed below.
The Festival Welcome Center and the Under One Sun Pool Party will also be moved to the National. Hotel guests will still receive two complimentary tickets per room to the Pool Party.
Guests who previously booked rooms at the host hotel under the Winter Party block have had their reservations transferred to the National, which will honor their original room rates. Guests must confirm or cancel their reservations by February 16. They can do so by e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at 305.532.2311.
We look forward to welcoming you all to our new home at the National Hotel!
The Gale Hotel, located just across the street from the host hotel, was recently rebuilt; almost completely from scratch. A stroll through the lobby reveals a first glimpse of the ‘40s replica, rich with deep wooden-hued floors and panels from imported oak. A balance of light pours from classic chandeliers and ‘40s sconces, along with natural sunlight outlined by white marble window frames. Art Deco-inspired loungers transport guests back to the famous era, which continues to translate throughout.
A total of 87 guest rooms convey the subtle, yet lavish boutique appeal, designed to cater to every type of retreat. Bedroom walls are clad in a black photo frame collage depicting the splendor of the ‘40s. Cozy beds and modish furniture are the main focus of the lengthy room, laced with Italian accents, marble bathroom appointments, Menin Hotels’ signature GUYandGIRL amenities and state-of-the-art technology. A tour around the Gale South Beach & Regent Hotel reveals extravagant nooks, from The Regent Cocktail Club, to the luscious, 5,000-square-foot pool deck with private infinity pool access (Gale) or public panoramas of the South Beach sunset (Regent). Fashionable restaurants and chic bar areas round out the Gale South updated features.

Shore Club brings a fresh, modern vibe to the dynamic energy of South Beach, offering a luxurious playground for the jet-set at this boutique Oceanside resort hotel. Designed by famed British modernist David Chipperfield, the landmarked Art Deco hotel lobby flows seamlessly and mysteriously from indoor to outdoor spaces, featuring labyrinthine gardens inspired by Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech.
Guests have multiple options to explore within the hotel: Skybar, set amidst tropical gardens, pulses with the electricity of Miami nightlife, while the legendary Nobu restaurant serves classic Japanese cuisine with a modern flair. Overlooking Shore Club’s pools is Terrazza, a restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner both indoors and on the terrace. And, when a quiet moment is in order, guests can relax at The Spa at Shore Club or recharge at the state of the art gym. Shore Club is located just steps from the excitement and shopping of the Art Deco District, Ocean Drive, Lincoln Road, South Beach nightlife and Espanola Way.
Hôtel Gaythering is Miami Beach's only “straight friendly” hotel. It is located in South Beach where prestigious Lincoln Road meets the Bay. Behind its original facade, nothing has been spared to provide a unique experience. The hotel’s amenities reflect the fact that luxury is no longer about spending the most money; it is about getting the best value and being made to feel special. Hotel Gaythering wants to help visitors become instant locals. The staff has a wealth of knowledge and passion about its community and loves to share this with their guests.
The lobby is the heart of the Hôtel, a communal space where guests and locals can “Gayther” for a coffee, a drink or a bite to eat. It is a place where relationships can organically unfold, creating a sense of community within the Hôtel. The Coffee Shop, Lounge and Library serve as incubators for productive minds, as well as casual communal experiences. The hotel promotes “Gaythering” and socializing with activities and curated programming. Guests and local members might also want to take full advantage of the complimentary use of the “Do It Yourself Spa” with its Hamam, Jacuzzi, Steam Room and Sauna. It’s the perfect place to relax and recharge.
