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
I had an amazing experience at this hotel. The service was amazing. One person that stood out was Charlie Mena. From the minute I walked into the 1 Hotel he was very welcoming and always brought off positive energy. He was extremely professional and very accommodating. I would definitely visit this hotel again !
We had an exceptional experience at the 1 Hotel. We stayed in one of the residences and took full advantage of all the amenities. Emilio on the beach could not have been more gracious and Paula was equally charming. A perfect 4 days!
As guests at 1 Hotel Residences this past weekend, we spent a day on the beach, as well as poolside, etc. While all staff we encountered were pictures of wonderful hospitality, the beach team were simply tip-top. Emilio Hernandez who took care of us with cabanas and did a perfect job of addressing a washed ashore situation, and then Paulo, who served our lunch and beverages, deserve extra special mention. Applause and big thanks to them...
We hope to be able to return before too long.
I was here for a conference and was really impressed with the food, the service, the location, the staff and the pools.There is a roof deck bar and pool for guests and also 2 pools lower down. The gym is great. There is a healthy place to eat next to the gym.
This was our 2nd trip here. Last year I did not leave a great review, but we found our trip this year was substantially improved. We booked very last minute and ended up staying here due to availability compared to other hotels and are so glad we came back! Joan at check in was so friendly and ensured a smooth process getting us to our room, which was beautifully upgraded to an ocean and pool view. We enjoyed a killer workout again with Gabby who remembered us from a year ago! She was just as amazing as we remembered! We spent our days at the beach- the staff was much more attentive this trip. The second day of our stay it was too windy for umbrellas to be opened and I was pretty sunburnt so the staff kindly offered me a cabana, free of charge. Ruben took our drink and snack orders and even sent a complimentary drink to my husband because he didn’t ask specifically if he wanted his drink frozen or on the rocks. Housekeeping did an excellent job as well. And we enjoyed a great Tesla ride to dinner last night. Everyone was very kind and it was a much improved experience from last year. Would highly recommend and we will very likely be back!
