Surfside's Four Seasons Hotel at the Surf Club Makes Travel + Leisure's 'It List'

By: Surfside Feb 27, 2018

Editors Rank Surf Club as Top Hotel

Every year Travel & Leisure editors compile a list of some of the world’s best hotels, appropriately naming it the “It List.” This year, Surfside’s very own Four Seasons Hotel at the Surf Club made the list. 
The “It List” is the magazine’s annual collection of both the best new as well as reborn properties worldwide. This year the list included 56 hotels, including properties in far-flung locales such as the African island of Madagascar, a palace in Paris that dates back to Louis XV, and stunning hotels in the middle of urban centers like New York and Toronto.

The Four Seasons Hotel at the Surf Club is the only hotel on the list in Florida and one of just a handful of hotels that call the U.S. home (many of the properties are international). 

From Travel & Leisure:
“Noël Coward and Liz Taylor used to play at the Surf Club, a haunt for society and celebrity in this quiet enclave north of Miami Beach. Now, the 1930 Mediterranean Revival masterpiece is back as a hotel, one that evokes its mid-20th-century heyday without feeling like a theme park. Richard Meier’s three glass towers form the backdrop. The center one sits above the reimagined club and houses the 72 new rooms. Closer to the beach are five Cabana suites, all with terrazzo floors. Dinner at Le Sirenuse is pure pageantry, from $300-per-person truffle-tasting menus to a restored mural of Bacchus.” - Tom Austin 

The hotels on the list are chosen by editors after careful considering the thousands of hotel openings and renovations around the globe that happened in the last year. Location, design, and service are all must-have attributes, as well as what the editors call ‘buzz factor’ – something that makes a hotel a standout. 

The resulting Travel & Leisure list is a who’s who of some of the best hotels in the world, many that are destinations themselves. What an honor to have one of our very own included in the list. To see the full Travel & Leisure “It List”, click here.
