About South Beach Group
This was my third time staying at a South Beach Group hotel in Miami, with the first two being at Riviera . This independent hotel group has more than 10 properties in the area, ranging from hostels to 4-star hotels. Two features that immediately stand out are their famous complimentary happy hours for guests (from 7-8pm) and their unique approach to interior design.
Details You’ll Love
Hotel Croydon is full of subtle mid-century design details that are not only photogenic but inspiring if you’re in Miami for a combination of work and play, as is usually my case. As a unique bonus, you can also borrow specialized design books at the lobby. There’s a balanced combination of monochrome details, interesting textures, and stunning palms everywhere you look.

Tile. Enough said.
The stunning mid-century Sputnik chandelier waiting for you at the lobby
What makes these Sputnik chandeliers so special is that they are iconic interior design pieces from an era known as the Atomic Age. This period in design history spans from 1940 to 1960, and gets its name from society’s concerns about a nuclear war. Architecture, industrial design, advertising, interior design, and fine arts were all influenced by atomic science. Sputnik was the world’s first artificial satellite, and it was launched by the Soviet Union in 1957.
