Get away to one of the hottest places on planet earth with today’s escape to Miami: spend four nights at Riviera South Beach, a classic jewel ($599).

While making a name for itself as the newest boutique hotel in the South Beach Group collection, its artful location in the heart of Miami's Art Deco district will leave you wondering if you might bump into Don Draper himself.

Just steps from the famed Collins Avenue boutiques, world-class restaurants, hot nightlife, and miles of beaches, the Riviera writes its own advertisement.

The hotel's round-trip shuttle transports you and your creative-director-in-crime from Miami International Airport to the luxurious hotel, where you receive a bottle of sparkling wine at check-in and an upgrade from a studio to a stylish one-bedroom suite. Each abode comes equipped with a gourmet kitchen and separate living, dining and sleeping areas. The décor combines classic mid-century sophistication with contemporary chic.

In true starlet fashion, don your shades and take your included breakfast for two poolside, then lay low around the sterling, sun-drenched oasis. Grab a couple of chairs from The Catalina Beach Club, and stroll easily to several beaches where sun, surf and of course, beautiful beach bodies, await.

When you need a break from the sun, hop on a tour of the neighbourhood, taking in the largest collection of Streamline Moderne Art Deco architecture in the world.

For a change of scenery, visit the Riviera's nearby sister property, The Catalina Hotel, where your daily $20 credit can be used to dine al fresco at Kung Fu Kitchen & Sushi or enjoy cocktails at Maxine's Bistro & Bar. If steamy nightlife is calling your name, kick off an evening of dancing with a nightly happy hour (old-fashioned, anyone?) held from 7 pm to 8 pm, also at The Catalina.

Tell Betty not to wait up: this escape is the lucky strike you've been waiting for — and you'd be a mad man to miss it.
