The best reason to stay in Miami in the summer? Hotel pools. Gone are the pasty crowds of Midwesterners lounging about for some 305 color. In the summer months, it's the locales that roost at Miami's many beautiful swimming holes.
As the humidity goes up, your chances of spying some celeb skin poolside goes down exponentially.
In place of Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway sightings, however, you can have your pick of posh cabanas, perfectly-temperature-controlled pools, and even have your own sunblock butler at your beck and call for a quick rub-down.
Here are Miami's best hotel pools worth a dive, splash, and lounge this summer.
