Miami Beach tends to be synonymous with swanky nightlife, colorful beaches lined with luxury homes, high-end shops and endless international cocktail and dining establishments along the way. This doesn’t necessarily have to be the case for summer vacationers. Even on a budget, bring the family on a summer getaway and enjoy all the day-to-night fun the beach town has to offer.
The Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel, has been the Grande Dame of Beverly Hills since its debut in 1928. An exclusive, black wrought-iron-gated entry drive separates The Wilshire Wing — the original 10-story Renaissance Revival building that faces famed Rodeo Drive — from the newer, 14-story Beverly Wing, with its many balconied rooms overlooking the pool complex. The large Mediterranean-styled pool is modeled after Sophia Loren’s 16th-century Roman villa and surrounded by chaise lounges … and, a colorful array of pool toys. There’s also a two-story Cardio Center fitness pavilion (with private trainers) and a casual Pool Bar & Café, which serves salads, wraps and kid-friendly items.
