The 10 best hotels in Daytona Beach

Discover the top hotels of iconic Daytona Beach hand-picked by Florida experts Simon and Susan Veness.

Whisper it quietly in south Florida, but Miami Beach might not be the most famous beach destination in the Sunshine State. No, that title really belongs to Daytona Beach, which was a seaside Mecca for world record speed enthusiasts from 1903 to 1935 while Miami was still finding its feet as a major destination. The southern city may have taken the lead for sheer volume in recent decades, but that doesn’t mean Daytona Beach has lacked for smart, upscale resorts, especially in the last 10 years as its visitor numbers have swelled once again. In fact, if there is one area this renowned beach destination has excelled at in that time, it is providing the luxury touch with an ever-increasing range of deluxe properties of all kinds. So, if you’re looking for the very best places to stay in this extensive beach destination, check out our Daytona Beach top 10.


The Daytona, Autograph Collection


1870 Victory Circle



Any conversation about luxury hotels in Daytona Beach must start with The Daytona, a Marriott Autograph Collection resort that set a new deluxe benchmark in this upbeat destination when it opened in 2019.
From signature cocktails to sumptuous rooms, The Daytona is all about elevated quality and service, with a contemporary vibe that perfectly complements the upscale shops and restaurants of the One Daytona complex of which it is part, and the famous Daytona International Speedway, which sits on the other side of Highway 92. The 144 rooms are decorated in subtle tones highlighted by automotive decor, while the resort-style pool – complete with private cabanas – adds the right air of vacation indulgence.
The clincher for us is Sir Malcolm’s, the restaurant named for world land speed record holder Sir Malcolm Campbell, boasting a mouth-watering contemporary American cuisine menu that ticks all the boxes for memorable dining.


Hard Rock Hotel Daytona Beach


918 North Atlantic Avenue



The idea of pairing a famous location with an iconic entertainment brand sounds like hotel heaven – and that’s exactly what results from plonking the Hard Rock Hotel right on the Daytona beachfront. It hits the top of the charts for a prime position on Highway A1A and the main beach, and is only a 20-minute rock-and-stroll from the signature Main Street Pier.
The hotel’s super-chic style is perfectly suited to this lively destination, with its upscale vibe packed with rock memorabilia and superb creature comforts, like the oceanfront pool, Rock Spa and Salon, glitzy outdoor Wave Terrace, and amenity-laden Roxity Youth Club for children.
We love the fact you can even borrow a guitar and play it in your room to fully live the rockstar lifestyle, while the dining lives up to celebrity standards, too, with indoor/outdoor restaurant Sessions serving up some of the best food on the seafront.


Bahama House


2001 South Atlantic Avenue



You know those high-rise, faux-glitzy corporate hotels with resort fees and other sneaky charges? Bahama House isn’t one of them. Instead, this lovely 10-story family-owned resort offers a fully family-friendly approach that really appeals to our sense of vacation relaxation, providing a bright, airy atmosphere that blends perfectly into its oceanfront location just south of the iconic Main Street Pier.
Rooms are equally sleek and inviting, with balconies and sweeping ocean views, plus kitchenettes (in the majority) and masses of living space. The chic oceanfront pool and Whirlpool tub provide the perfect introduction to the outdoor aspect, with the beach just literal steps away.
Extra value includes free Wi-Fi, parking, breakfast, and a daily Happy Hour in the Grand Bahama Room. Other dining choices are within 10 minutes’ walk or a five-minute drive, including the classic style of the Daytona Diner and seafood-centric Crabby’s Oceanside, which we adore at sundown.


Nautilus Inn


1515 South Atlantic Avenue



Luxury hotels come in all shapes and sizes along 23-mile Daytona Beach, with the boutique end of the scale beautifully supplied by the Nautilus Inn, a local fixture since the 1960s and lovingly maintained ever since.
With just 99 rooms and a true individual style, the Nautilus scores for both its glorious beachfront location and sun deck and pool, complete with Whirlpool tub and loungers to soak up the seaside ambiance. Rooms – all with balconies – feature full kitchens, in addition to a generous amount of living space. A handy marketplace supplies drinks, snacks, and quick meals, with a Winn Dixie supermarket less than a mile away and plenty of nearby restaurant choices.
And – while this isn’t necessarily us on vacation – this is the place for early risers, with an uninterrupted view of the daily sunrise sensation that kicks Daytona Beach into gear every morning.


Hilton Garden Inn Daytona Beach Oceanfront


2560 North Atlantic Avenue



According to the ‘Veness Manual of Hotel Style’ (a best-selling book just waiting to be published), beachfront vacation hot-spots should be bright, bubbly, and welcoming, with direct beach access, comfortable pool loungers, and the chance to raise an alcoholic libation or two at sundown.
The Hilton Garden Inn Daytona Beach Oceanfront ticks all these boxes, and more, as a lovely choice on the northern stretch of this famous beach. It occupies an idyllic location along seafront Highway A1A, maintains high standards of service and style, and the bar staff know how to put together a good margarita.
The amenities, which include a fitness room, pool deck, and in-house restaurant, are equally sharp. Should you need further options still, the Bellair Plaza across the street adds a Publix supermarket and several restaurants, notably the fun style of Big Tuna’s Beach Bar and Grill.


Tropical Winds Oceanfront Hotel


1398 North Atlantic Avenue



To some, hotel luxury means having a Michelin-starred restaurant on site. To others, it might be the simple pleasure of a good book and a balcony overlooking the sea. If, like us, you tend towards the latter, we can thoroughly recommend the Tropical Winds Oceanfront Hotel.
It boasts plenty of hearty creature comforts, like the chic pool deck that overlooks the beach, comfortable sun-loungers, and even an indoor pool, but it is most notable for its great location and the pleasure of balcony views that go straight to the ocean horizon.
To that end, rooms are chic and cheerful, with a choice of full kitchen and kitchenette. There are plenty of nearby restaurant options – including the Latin-Caribbean fusion cuisine of Chucherias Fine Dining – but Tropical Winds also boasts the casually charming Poolside Cafe for breakfast and lunch.


Daytona Grande Oceanfront Resort


422 North Atlantic Avenue



When you absolutely must be at the center of the Daytona Beach scene, with the full array of amenities practically on tap, the Daytona Grande is the deluxe hotel for you. This towering monument to upscale style is in the heart of the Seabreeze Historic District, just a short walk from attractions like Main Street Pier, Daytona Lagoon water park, Ocean Walk Shoppes, and Daytona Beach Bandshell.
The glittering 27-story edifice also boasts plenty of its own services, including a fabulous infinity pool, state-of-the-art fitness center with glorious ocean views, and delectable dining. The latter includes the standout Abalone Restaurant, which features some of the freshest Florida seafood, while the accommodations include immaculate king and queen rooms and one- and two-bedroom suites.
The most impressive feature, though, is the sheer eye-catching nature of the resort, with thrilling design that incorporates bright, sleek decor and furnishings for a true luxury look.
