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
Stayed at the 1 hotel this past President’s weekend. Our first night we had a fantastic dinner at STK. The following day we spent on the beach; Jacob our attendant was amazing. He was very helpful and even recommended a dinner spot for us which we loved. Looking forward to coming back in April.
We generally only book 5 star hotels and 1 Hotel South Beach met and exceeded our exceptions. We would definitely stay again. Great location, access to beach and boardwalk. Bikes available also from the hotel. Morning breakfast buffet was awesome. Generally don't do the buffet, however it was included in our room as well as free parking. If I had to pay additional for the buffet I would have happily done so. Staff was also very friendly and helpful. Free Tesla X shuttle to restaurants. Nice!
I spent a day there with some friends at the beach and had been much well receptioned from Chris who set us up, and also Emily was very kind and helpful, always smiling! The beach is very clean and organized, congrats to all the staff!!!
Excellent hotel on Miami beach. Well located. Very nice staff. A casual and chic atmosphere. Large bedrooms , very clean. Ecoresponsible. Great confort. Two swimming pools and restaurant on the roof facing the beach.
We stayed two nights en route to the Caribbean. The hotel is lovely - cool chic Miami vibe. It never felt too busy or crowded. Service was good. We enjoy excellent personalized service offered by some 5 star hotels and this was not on that level, but that level of service is hard if not impossible to find in South Beach.
We booked a deluxe ocean view room at first and were kindly upgraded to a one bedroom suite that felt much like an apartment. I didn’t want that vibe on vacation. The hotel and John of the bell service were accommodating until we found the right suite. We paid for an upgrade to the ocean front suite which had an AMAZING view of the beach and was as ocean front as you could get at this hotel. It was worth it. It had a glass paneled shower that allowed you to shower while looking at the ocean - amazing. You can look at the ocean and beach from your bed. The living room was large and had a balcony with day bed.
Overall good service in a chic hotel in South Beach. No complaints.
