The SoFi District of South Beach attracts an upscale clientele who gather at landmark restaurants like Prime 112 and Joe’s Stone Crab, spend winters in million dollar South Beach apartments and toast their good fortune on the golden shores and warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s tough to imagine there are affordable luxuries in this posh enclave until you see the rates at the boutique Ocean Five Hotel. A perfect spot for a family getaway, the 56 guest rooms and suites offer iPod docking stations, satellite TVs, high speed wireless internet access, and a complimentary continental breakfast each day.
Steps away from some of the city’s most popular restaurants and nightclubs, the Ocean Five Hotel is so close to the action you’ll need no rental car. Shop, dine and dance your way through South Beach and then relax in the Mediterranean splendor of a king-, queen- or double-bedded room or upgrade to a suite complete with a comfy sofa and kitchen area. Thirteen adjacent condominium units are available in one- or two-bedroom and bathroom configurations with floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies, plasma televisions, stainless appliances and soundproofed construction.
Ideal for business or personal travel, the Ocean Five is directly across from the beach and within easy walking distance to the Art Deco Welcome Center, the restaurants and bars of Ocean Drive and a 15 minute taxi to the Port of Miami. The hotel’s Barolo Ristorante specializes in the cuisine of the Piedmont region in Northern Italy. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, Barolo is a popular gathering spot for hotel guests and locals who rave about the chef’s signature risottos and pastas. Enjoy the simple pleasures of this restored Art Deco boutique property where comfort, style and simplicity are the hallmarks of a beachy South Florida vacation.
