The Shore Club – Miami

Posted on 05 April 2010

Photos & Review by Le Cobrasnake The Shore club is classic Miami. That’s not always a good thing but in this case it was. The rooms in this hotel are a study in clean, white lines and minimal simplicity.  That kind of design can be boring, but not in this case. You can find everything […]
