1 Hotel South Beach
South Beach, Miami Beach, FL 33139, USA
1 Hotel South BeachOne of the newest proposals to Miami’s robust South Beach hotel scene is the 1 Hotel South Beach. The ocean front property is massive, occupying an entire city block with 425 hotel rooms and a wing of privately held condos. What hems the property together and attracts visitors that aren’t hotel guests are the property's excellent restaurants, spa and its four pools, the rooftop pool being the largest and most impressive rooftop pool in South Beach. This is a fabulous hangout spot at the hotel, especially for the spectacular views and the Watr at the 1 Rooftop restaurant with a lunch and inner menu that offers Polynesian and Japanese-inspired fare like hand rolls and poke bowls.
The hotel itself is stunning and was planned with sustainable design in mind. The interiors are materials like salvaged Florida cypress, coral stone and nearly 11,000 living plants. Designers used and reused as many natural elements as possible throughout, keeping in mind their carbon footprint without comprising on creating very stylish and attractive spaces. Rooms and suites have thoughtful touches, like a mini bar stocked with artisan snacks and small batch beauty products like sunscreens and body oils. They also come with a triple filtered water fountain that provides free, super clean drinking water. The service here is excellent, and the hotel also has Telsa house vehicles that give guests complimentary rides within a three mile radius.
