Miami Beach, Florida
1 Hotel South Beach
What it is
A chic and mindful newcomer on South Beach.
What it isn't
One of Miami’s party places with a pool that's equal parts chlorine and cocktails.
What we think
1 Hotel and Residence reflects a new ethos for Miami: In place of the all-night ragers that define South Beach, 1 Hotel reflects the growing local trend that appreciates the area's more natural assets—celebrate "daylife," as the property itself puts it (as well as nightlife). Occupying a full block of beachfront property (the building opened in 1925 as the Roney Plaza and was more recently the Gansevoort), the hotel is casually tranquil and gracefully eco-friendly—think reclaimed wood, living walls and linen furniture rather than hemp bracelets or recycled wastewater. The rooms and suites are subtle, handsome and decidedly large for South Beach; floor-to-ceiling windows make them feel ever bigger. The hotel's Bamford Haybarn Spa marks the US debut for the holistic-leaning spa brand. The 12-room spa is complimented by the first-ever Spartan Gym as well as a SoulCycle studio. 1 Hotel can also organize paddleboard, yoga, or kayak trips in the Everglades. You'll rub elbows with locals dining at the brand new Plnthouse, Mathew Kenney's fresh, plant-based take on the traditional café-style menu, or at Tom Colicchio’s much-loved farm-to-table Beachcraft. For the meat-seeking STK serves locally-sourced surf and turf. Want a place to mingle and sip on a cocktail? Grab a comfy chair in the beautiful, open lobby and enjoy an offering from the witty lobby bar, Tom on Collins, or take in the view at Watr at The 1 Rooftop. (If you're dashing out, grab a cold-pressed juice or a to-go healthy snack at Nativ Made—get the "I and Only" juice for a quick, clean blast of energy.)
You're here because
You want something more mature than the neon party scene, and with a holistic lean. Also, seriously delicious dining and a superlative slice of beach.
Up on the 18th-floor roof deck, you lean back on the linen lounge chair and take a sip of your mojito (noting the mint grown in the hotel’s herb garden just below) as you witness yet another epic Miami sunset.
Beachfront, on Collins Avenue between 23rd and 24th. It’s two blocks to the Bass Museum and a quick ride in the hotel's Tesla to the New World Symphony or Lincoln Road. The Miami airport is about 25 minutes away.
