What We Love
- A new, all-suites base in a quiet corner of Miami Beach, within easy reach of Ocean DriveThe opportunity to stay at a brand-new boutique hotel in a striking contemporary building
- The fascinating references to Asian design and cryptography
- The jams on your in-room iPad’s DJ-curated playlist or from the rooftop pool’s underwater speakers
- The location, on the upper edge of South Beach, right near the Miami Beach Convention Center
If Christopher Nolan designed a Miami hideaway, it might look a bit like ABAE Hotel. The film director’s signature aesthetic, with all its references to cryptography and 21st-century Asian architecture, has quite a bit in common with that of this brand-new retreat – even the hotel’s name is a translation of its building’s street number, 1215, into the corresponding letters of the alphabet. The Flavio Rossato-designed Eskape Collection property boasts that it’s “cracked the code to comfort and glamour” and, with an art collection, a year-round rooftop pool with underwater speakers and luxe suites that hold kitchenettes and living areas, lives up to the claim. But if you’d like to do some deciphering yourself, the city is right outside, with thousands of paths to follow and doors to open.
In fact, you’re right in the heart of Miami Beach, on the upper edge of South Beach. Within blocks are the convention center, the Lincoln Road Mall and the thoroughfares of Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive – each with dozens of their own destinations, like buzzing restaurants and swimwear boutiques. Just a bit farther, at roughly six blocks, is the beach, and the nightspots of Brickell are a short drive across the causeway, offering hundreds more directions in which take your dream escape. After a day or night on the town, your suite’s sleek master bedroom will feel like a dream within a dream – just like a proper Nolan ending.

How to Get There
Modern decor with all the accommodations and extras...washer/dryer. Comfortable bed and pillows. GREAT HELPFUL STAFF! Two blocks from auto rental and GREAT restaurants in the immediate area. The desk clerk "Jen" is totally on point and always smiling. If I could only give it more than 5 stars !!!!!
Location, cleanliness, and great staff... THE PRICE IS A BARGAIN!
THEY ALSO HAVE VALET INDOOR PARKING.
This is such a great hotel! The staff are so incredibly friendly - they’re always smiling and happy to help in anyway possible! They’re so unbelievably welcoming. The rooms are absolutely beautiful - they’re apartment style rooms that have a lovely lounge (kitted with some decent Bluetooth speakers, washing machine and other amenities). The apartment is so spacious - we had a huge balcony to chill out on. The pool was beautiful and the loungers all were plush leather loungers that made sunbathing awesome. Recommend it 100%.
We booked this hotel really last minute and arrived very early. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and provided us with towels for the beach/pool immediately. When we got into our room it was so spacious and clean, we felt so at home. The pool was really nice and peaceful and a great place to relax. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood with lots of nice restaurants within walking distance. South Beach is walkable or a short taxi ride away. We would definitely stay again!
Ultra cool and contemporary complete with rooftop pool and cabanas. South Beach style. Very impressed with rooms were more of a private residence than a hotel experience. Would highly recommend and will be back soon myself.
Staff were awesomely excellent. We dropped our bags off early, since we had to leave our cruise boat early, had a walk around town and then headed up to the pool until we could check in. Staff were excellent. Quite roomy suites. Pretty minimal utensils in our kitchen. No pots, pans, tea towels, jug, etc but did have microwave, fridge, griller, plates, glasses, cutlery. Great for reheat and eats but not really for cooking up a storm. Comfy beds. Great that it had a clothes washing machine/dryer in the room after being on the cruise.
