1 Hotel South Beach is a sexed-up addition to Miami’s already sizzling scene. It features four pools ringed by cushioned loungers, cabanas and lavender daybeds, which seemingly float above the water, all of it providing the perfect perch to people-watch or take in the ocean views. The guest rooms vary from City View Kings to Oceanfront Suites with balconies, but all are decorated in salvaged driftwood, soothing neutral shades and hemp-blend Keetsa mattresses wrapped in organic cotton linens. Some have private furnished balconies and full kitchens — perfect for extended stays or families. There are all the mod cons, too, such as 55-inch LCD flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers and Nespresso coffee machines. Start the morning with paddleboard yoga, have an in-room massage or go for a workout in the spacious Field House gym. When hunger strikes, you can head to the rooftop pool or casual Sand Box; both offer ocean views along with food and drinks, or sit down at Beachcraft, a Mediterranean grill focusing on fresh-caught seafood. Sip a nightcap in the farm-to-table lobby bar Tom on Collins, and the next morning have the chef make you a picnic to take to the beach. And speaking of a beach break, the concierge can offer advice on adventures accessible on foot, bicycle or in one of the fleet of Teslas available to guests.
In the Area
Leave your bathing suit drying on the balcony and step out to see some of South Beach’s cultural destinations. Right behind the hotel, the Bass Art Museum has a small but spectacular permanent collection; it also frequently hosts events. A few blocks to the south, the New World Symphony holds great concerts and frequent, free Wallcasts, in which movies or concerts are broadcast on the Frank Gehry–designed exterior to be enjoyed by viewers in the park opposite. And if you make your way seven blocks down, the shops, cafés and farmers and antique markets of pedestrian Lincoln Road await. Once you’ve explored the city side of your home away from home, hit the boardwalk on the ocean side to bike, jog or stroll South Beach.
How to Get There
Our family visits the 1 hotel every year in December and it’s always a wonderful experience. We recently just met Roman on the beach and he is a wealth of knowledge. Super friendly gentleman who can point you in the right direction for fun on the beach or any restaurant reservation / suggestion you wish. I highly recommend staying at the 1 hotel and if you do, meet Roman on the beach on your first day!
Usually stay at a neighboring property and we fell in love with the 1 Hotel lobby and restaurant Habitat so we decided to give the hotel a try on our most recent trip for my wife’s birthday. We are in South Beach a few times a year. Very impressed with the staff—from the reception, restaurants, pools, to the beach. Roman the beach concierge was an outstanding resource for our time at the water- professional, attentive, and accommodating. Look forward to our next visit!
We stayed at the 1hotel and had the best experience. Roman, Jon, and Graham were extremely nice and always willing to help us and get us anything we needed. Their service made our stay very easy and enjoyable. Definitely coming back!!!
The room was spacious, clean, uncluttered, and calming. The water was triple filtered. The huge bathtub could be filled to the top and the water still be hot! The bed was exceptionally comfortable.
The atmosphere of the whole hotel was like a gathering of hip young world travelers (I heard like 15 languages) who were looking to up their instagram feeds by staying in an Eco designed wonderland with other people who wanted to improve their instragram feeds too. Emphasis on desire to up their instagram feeds. Honestly, while the whole thing was super nice it also left a taste in my mouth of how you feel when you look at someone on social media and say "yeah their life seems amazing, but also that picture is totally staged."
The spa was fantastic and a definite high point. My wife and I also did Yoga with Derrick which was excellent.
The room service food was sub-par considering price. Habitat was our best meal there but again was it worth the price? Maybe.
Overall, very glad to have stayed there and I think it is worth checking out, but in the end I don't need to pay extra cash for triple filtered water and gourmet mini-bar offerings. I just need a comfortable room, a nice beautiful pool, good reasonably priced food, and beach access. Probably will stay elsewhere and return just for a high quality selfie!
Gorgeous building , very clean rooms and a very special service operated on the beach , if you are going there Roman will be an authentic friend and he will let you feel in a little paradise .
Thank you so much for this unforgettable , amazing experience !!!
