The Standard Hotel pool
The Standard Hotel sits right on the beach in Miami Beach, Florida, and has the luxurious accouterments to match.

Would you like to trade in the snowpack for palm trees and ocean breezes? If so, this series is for you. We’re beating the winter blues by daydreaming of island getaways that boast authentic midcentury style. Be sure to join us each week for a new edition of Atomic Getaways: Snowbird Edition.

The Standard Hotel spa
Every area of the hotel, even the spa treatment room, has sleek modern furniture and lighting.

Spa Central

Miami Beach is a much sought-after vacation spot because of its sunny weather, myriad beaches and hip hang outs. The Standard fits right in, but with a twist—it’s inspired by the midcentury era. “[It’s] less a ‘hotel,’ and more a spa with guest rooms,” the website says. “The Spa encourages the communal rituals of ancient bathing traditions and serves as a hub for sessions by some of the world’s top yogis and treatments by expert practitioners.” In addition to guest rooms, the spa itself (complimentary to guests) includes everything from a Turkish-style hamam, aroma steam room and Roman waterfall hot tub to a Finnish sauna, arctic plunge, treatment baths, mud lounge and infinity pool. Not to mention the actual treatment rooms.

The Standard guest room
There are eight guest rooms at The Standard, which all come with complimentary access to the spa.

Social Hubspot

Not only is The Standard a place to relax, but it regularly hosts events. These include film screenings, bingo nights and poetry readings. These often happen in the hotel’s communal spaces, which give off a cool MCM vibe, from the Lido Lounge to the Desert Lounge and Bayside Dock.

The Standard Lobby Lounge
The Lobby Lounge is the host to many of the events at The Standard, with a fun midcentury-inspired stained glass window and pendant lighting.
Standard Hotel Lido Bar and Lounge
The Lido Bar and Lounge has a warm midcentury feel with its furnishings and lighting. It’s fun too—there’s a library, ping pong, and you can order off the menu.

The Standard also has several dining areas, from the casual Juice Cafe and Terrace to the outdoor Lido Bayside Grill and indoor Desert Lounge. There are plenty of spaces to relax, host events and get business done while soaking in the midcentury surroundings.
