Planning on going to the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in February? From experience I can say the prime hotels will sell-out early. If you want to see chefs poolside, I'd recommend booking a room at the Loews or Raleigh. If you want to stay in the newest spot, the Gansevoort South (sister hotel to the Gansevoort in the Meatpacking in Manhattan) will open in January. Full press release after the jump, detailing outposts from Philippe Chow, STK and David Barton.
