The Lord Balfour is a boutique hotel of 64 rooms and suites located in the South of Fifth neighborhood of Miami Beach.

Making a nod to history and tradition with a wink to the Brits, the hotel will on take on its original moniker, and pay homage in a contemporary way, from the witty design elements to cheeky British offerings. Guest can enjoy refreshing tea-infused cocktails from the lobby bar or on the expansive shaded veranda overlooking Ocean Drive.
