Since the company opened its first hotel in Barcelona over 15 years ago, Axel hotels have become trusted safe spaces for international queer travelers — and Axel is the first LGBTQ hotel chain to tout itself as “hetero-friendly,” making it truly inclusive. Now the chic boutique hotel chain is opening its first U.S. location — in Miami Beach, Fla.
Opening this month, AxelBeach Miami is located a block from the shore in the heart of South Beach, in Miami Beach’s famous Art Deco District. This lively locale is perfect for those who really want to soak in the true South Beach experience.
Whether cutting through the current on a rented Jet Ski or lounging on the nearby white sand beaches, the area has plenty of daytime activities for travelers — including tons of amazing places to get your shopping on. But the real party starts after dark in South Beach, and being walking distance to some of the area’s best-known nightclubs and bars, AxelBeach Miami gives you a front row seat to the action. In fact, several of Miami Beach’s sexiest queer clubs, like Twist, Palace, and Club Boi, are just a quick walk or Uber ride from the hotel. The sultry summer nights and cool Caribbean vibe invite you to wear as little clothing as possible (if there ever was a time to wear that fishnet tank top) and will keep you out bumping and grinding until the wee hours.
