miami snapshots {the coolest hotel I’ve ever stayed at}

On the last two days of our vacation in Florida, we stayed at the Clevelander Hotel on South Beach. Luke and I fell in love with this place (mainly the bar and the pina coladas) the last time that we were in Miami, so on this trip we HAD to stay here and we’re sure glad we did. From the moment that you walk into the sleek lobby, you know you’ve picked a good hotel. Just look at it!

^ I love all-white bedding.
It just looks so fresh and clean Very comfortable, I might add. ^
^ Only in Miami is your room card this risque. ^
^ I love how the bathroom and shower are separated with colored glass sliding doors. ^
^^Just a mere minutes from our room you can take an elevator up to the rooftop of the hotel and relax in the sun. ^
^ Multiple levels of rooftop relaxation ^
^^Best Pina Coladas and Miami Vice’s ever. We *might* have collected lots of these cups… ^
 
What do you think?
We had never stayed at a hotel that had 2 rooftop sundecks, 4 bars, multiple pools, an indoor and outdoor club, a music lounge, etc… But I’m sure we’d like to again. I can’t recommend this place enough, if you’re looking to have a fun time and be around all the action on South Beach. Even with all the bars, nightclubs, loud music and drinks we were still able to get a quiet and good nights sleep. We’ll definitely be staying here the next time we find ourselves in Miami.

Gaslamp Quarter (and one amazing rooftop bar)

Our hotel in San Diego was located in the historic Gaslamp Quarter. Being newbies to San Diego, we didn’t know the best place, or best part of town to say in, so THANKS to Jordan and Brenna for recommending this hotel and allowing us to stay here with the wedding group rate, haha. This hotel was amazing, with the rooftop bar being the absolute best part.

Can you believe this view?
Such a fun place to hang out and have a drink

We went up here several times to hang out and we thought it was the coolest thing, ever. There was a happy hour all day on Sunday that we most definitely took advantage of. The only bummer is that the Padres were out of town, it would’ve been awesome to watch a game from the rooftop bar!

Coronado Island

Our first stop in San Diego was Coronado Island. Okay, it’s not really an island, but rather a peninsula. But, absolutely gorgeous nonetheless. My aunt actually got married here and I can see why!

could this place be any more gorgeous?
FACT: My hair gets even more red at the beach.

We could’ve spent some serious time out here. But we couldn’t because we had to go check into our hotel and then get ready for Jordan and Brenna’s wedding. Those pics will be coming up in the next few days – so stay tuned!
