Iconic Miami Beach Art Deco tower turned sleek budget boutique stay with a rock-and-roll edge
The brainchild of three Spanish friends, the Room Mate brand aims to revolutionize the pricey urban hotel scene, offering reasonably priced rooms in primo neighborhoods that are light on unnecessary extras and heavy on of-the-moment, streamlined style. The Miami edition makes the most of its Art Deco heritage: The façade is classic Miami Deco, whitewashed with tangerine detailing and set on a road lined with palm trees. Inside, the guestrooms feature a slick black, white and silver color palette, with details like hardwood floors, chrome headboards and framed black-and-white prints of Art Deco District buildings. The bathrooms are spacious, ultramodern and decked out in moody blacks and grays. In keeping with the brand’s ethos of a pared-back hotel experience — providing a great place to sleep, shower and eat breakfast before heading out to see a city — there’s no gym, spa or restaurant, although there is a terrace where guests can enjoy breakfast, as well as a small lobby bar.
In the Area
Sure, you could blow some serious cash at any of the swanky high-end joints in Miami and South Beach, but why not explore the city’s cheap-and-cheerful side instead? Start at the South Beach outpost of My Ceviche, a fun cevicheria from Miami fixtures Sam Gorenstein and Roger Duarte that serves top-notch wild-caught seafood, zingy salads and tacos using free-range meat. Need something to soak up those adult beverages you consumed poolside? Head to La Sandwicherie, a Miami Beach go-to for sandwiches both All-American (“The Terminator” features three different kinds of meat, plus provolone) and Euro-influenced (croques every which way). If you’re in more of a Latin mood, hop over to El Mago de las Fritas for some authentic Cuban sandwiches or fritas, Cuban-style hamburgers loaded with delicious calories. Or if you’re feeling posh but don’t want to spend a lot of dosh, slurp freshly shucked oysters at the River Oyster Bar; at the daily happy hour (4:30 to 7) you can snare a dozen oysters for less than 20 bucks.
