Z Ocean Hotel a Condé Nast Traveler Gold List 2013 Recipient

Pure Condé-Nast-Traveler Gold

We’re thrilled to be recognized among “The World’s Best Places to Stay” according to The Condé Nast Traveler.

Not only did we make The Gold List, but we’re among the only South Beach Hotels of all Miami Hotels to receive this coveted recognition!

So thank you, you gorgeous, handsome, and other otherwise extremely good-looking readers and guests for putting us forward as one of your favorite hotels in the world. It’s an honor that not many can receive, and we’re thrilled to be chosen for yet another Condé Nast Traveler award.

Here at Z Ocean Hotel, we dedicate ourselves to being the top choice for travelers looking for the perfect stay in the South Beach/Miami area, and with your continued support and even more hard work we look forward to one day attaining the long-desired Condé Nast Traveler Platinum Circle title.

Déjà Vu

This isn’t the first time we’ve been recognized by Condé Nast Traveler. Back in September Z Ocean received the Reader’s Choice Award for and ranked #7 out of top 20 hotels of Florida. Award judges included nearly 50,000 readers who elected the best of the best accommodations from around the globe.

“Fabulous room and service superb. Great location.”

Laura McMahan, Oklahoma

In the Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice: Florida award, the publication asked readers to rate hotels based upon “the exceptionality of rooms, service, food, location, design and activities.”

Out of a possible score of ’100′, Z Ocean scored high with a 90.5, placing us above other South Beach hotels.

“A very hip, fun boutique style hotel. The rooms are incredible with every amenity, and the intimate pool area is very inviting. Hard to leave it for the beach, which is a block away.

Good restuarant for breakfast, and the location is perfect to enjoy the scene on New Year’s Eve.”

Linda Sparn, Colorado

Tis ‘Z Season For Giving

Give a Little, Get a Little

The holiday season is upon us and now’s the perfect time to get into the giving spirit with The Front Porch Café and Toys For Tots.

Toys for Tots is a national organization that helps less fortunate families and children throughout the United States experience the joy of the holidays with free gifts and donations from around the country.

The program is set up in participating locations to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distributes these toys as  gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

Toys For Tots has a special place reserved in the heart of The Front Porch Café Executive Chef Todd Webster, a huge supporter for the cause. (Read more about Chef Todd’s story in this Miami Herald special.)

If you want to learn more about Toys For Tots, visit their official website,


In addition to free drinks and charitable do-gooding, feel free to sign up for Salsa, Merengue or Bachata lessons every Tuesday in the Breezeway area.

Classes are from 6:30pm till 7:30pm. You can bring a significant other but you are not required to. The group rotates partners.

What better backdrop to learn Latin American dances than Miami? So drop a toy off, grab a strong, cold cocktail and get those hips moving!
