We're settling into 2012 quite nicely, but it's obvious that here at R29, we can't help but daydream about our next getaway. While most of us aren't flying to Rio for Carnival (we used those precious vacation days for New Year's, ugh), that doesn't mean we're not already sweating Summer Fridays. But hey, the next long weekend (and last one for a while) will be here before you know it, and oh-so-coincidentally, Miami has some brand-new hotels that might make even Brazilians jealous. So, we've gathered up five properties that are worthy of your three-day weekend, whether you're planning a staycation or jetting down from up north. From a posh resort complete with butler service to a hip Ocean Drive aquarium pool (!), these haute hostelries are a guaranteed hold-over 'til your next big break. And, of course, we scored all the insider 411 on each. The best room with a view? Check. The meal that can't be missed? Duh. Just call us your personal concierge.
