It’s no secret that Miami is a picturesque city. Around every corner you’ll find vibrant buildings, scenic skylines, captivating landscapes, or, if you’re lucky, all of the above. Musician and fashion influencer Sali Kim knows a thing or two about this. With so many picture-perfect places, it’s hard to narrow it down to the right location to get your shot. Lucky for us, Sali has shared her favorite hotels for taking Instagram-worthy photos, and here they are.


The Leslie Hotel.

With sunflower yellow hues all around, Sali herself recommends the Leslie. Here you will find an art deco aesthetic with all of the bright and cheery vibes you could ask for. Stop out front for a few photos, but don’t forget to make your way to the pool for more. The adorable yellow cabanas are a photo must!



Hotel Shelley.

This tropical boutique hotel is all-around adorable, and as Sali explained, the lovely pink and purple colors strewn about are cute for any feed. The building’s exterior is a great backdrop for outfit photos or street style, but we can’t discount the interior. Inside the hotel you’ll find gorgeous patios, tile bathrooms (for those mirror selfies which have recently made a comeback), and a sleek bar. Everywhere you turn at Hotel Shelley has Instagram potential.



The Clevelander.

Inside and out, we’re obsessed with the Clevelander- Sali knows what she’s talking about. She references the vintage flamingo style, which proves that this hotel is modern and cool. The iconic Clevelander sign deserves a picture for sure. If that’s not quite your style, the modern, neutral rooms with pops of blue might be up your alley. Or you can even check out the bar, pool, or waterfront views. The Clevelander has no shortage of options when it comes to capturing Instagram-worthy photos.



 The Colony Hotel.

The colony is detailed, lively, and like a step back in time. Its cool blue tones are easy on the eye for sure, and they photograph well in daylight. The Colony has a particularly retro feel, and it’s only a few steps away from the beach. The front of the hotel is your go-to photo spot here, but you’ll also find interior vignettes that are worthy of the ‘gram. If you’re looking for hotels to shoot in Miami, the Colony should be at the top of your list.


If you’re anything like us, you’re always scouting out new places to create content for social media platforms, like Instagram. Miami is overflowing with options, but it’s safe to say we’re obsessed with the boutique hotel recommendations from none other than Sali Kimi. Her photos at these spots are to die for, and yours will be too. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
