Once school starts and families return to their regularly scheduled weekdays, Florida's hotels gear up for shoulder season with package deals to lure off-season travelers. Miami's classic South Beach high-rise hotels are no different. The SLS South Beach, Delano South Beach and the art deco Shore Club all have fall offerings that put Miami glam within reach.

The Hyde Villa Experience at SLS South Beach: The 140-guestroom SLS South Beach on Collins Avenue in the heart of South Beach has been a hotspot for those looking to see and be seen in Miami since its opening in 2012. With dining options from Japanese chef Katsuya Uechi and Nobel Prize nominee Jose Andres, it's a haven for foodies, too. Its pool area, known as Hyde Beach, is one of the most recognizable places in South Beach to take a dip or dance to the next big DJ. The Hyde Villa Experience package, available through Oct. 31, offers 30% off rooms overlooking the pool, priority access to Hyde Beach all weekend, one bottle of sparkling wine at the pool and 10% off bottle pricing. The Hyde Villa Experience package starts at $599 per night, and blackout dates may apply.

Bubbles & Bungalows at Shore Club: Just up Collins Avenue in the heart of the Art Deco District is the Shore Club, a labyrinth of gardens and alcoves that feels tucked away from the beach's typical bustle and buzz. The hotel is operated by the SBE Hotel Group and features a newly redesigned aesthetic throughout, with bohemian decor influences and light and airy, white-on-white, minimalist style. The hotel features new private bungalows that sleep up to four people. Through Nov. 30, guests can book the Bubbles & Bungalows package, which includes one bottle of sparkling wine at the pool bar, an in-room welcome amenity and weekend poolside daybed priority. Travel advisors can use the code PKPOOL to book the package, which starts at $429 per night, and blackout dates may apply.

Poolside Paradise at Delano South Beach: There are few hotels as iconic on South Beach as the Delano, designed by famed interior designer Philippe Starck and boasting a chic style as well as plenty of Instagrammable nooks. In a throwback to traditional hotel brunches bursting at the seams with options, the Delano hosts a Sunday brunch to believe in, featuring omelets, red-velvet waffles, cold-pressed juices, cheese and charcuterie, pastas, carving stations, a seafood bar and more than 20 bite-size dessert options. The Poolside Paradise package at the Delano features a complimentary daybed when booking a deluxe oceanfront (or above) room or a complementary cabana when booking a penthouse or apartment-level room. Rates for the package, which runs through Nov. 30, start at $625 per night.
