Hotelier and entrepreneur extraordinaire Ian Schrager’s South Beach outpost of his EDITION brand is set in a restored Art Deco gem on three and a half beachfront acres with two pools, a nightclub, a bowling alley, a skating rink and a celeb chef–helmed restaurant. Miami’s strict architecture code forced Schrager to preserve many of the building’s original 1955 details, including the lobby’s brilliant white marble floors and gold mosaic tile columns. All 294 guest rooms and 23 bungalows are understated, by Schrager’s standards, and appropriately beach-chic: light oak-paneled walls, white furnishings, sand-hued accents and ivory porcelain slab bathrooms. Many of the 294 guest rooms offer private terraces with direct beachfront views, finished with custom upholstered teak lounge chairs and glazed ceramic side tables. The vaunted Jean-Georges Vongerichten makes his Miami Beach debut in the sophisticated Matador Room, serving a modern interpretation of Latin cuisine influenced by Spanish, Caribbean and South American flavors.
In the Area
Ian Schrager and the Edition team took pains to preserve the 1955 Seville Hotel, proof that Art Deco style is king here. Go on your own photo safari and capture the world’s foremost examples of the style with an audio tour on your iPhone or a guided tour. Throw caloric caution to the wind with the fried chicken, biscuits and other haute downhome fare at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, a local favorite filled with pretty people getting down and dirty with bourbon and barbecue. While Ocean Drive itself can be touristy and mediocre foodwise – with the exception of Prime 112, De Rodriguez Cuba and BLT Steak – it also offers some wicked fun, especially at the neighboring Palace South Beach, renowned for its colorful drag shows. Parallel streets Collins and Washington avenues feature world class dining and nightclub options, ranging from the Bazaar by José Andrés in the SLS Hotel to Mansion nightclub. Perpendicular to the beach, walking mall Lincoln Road is great for people-watching and café-hopping.
How to Get There
I had such a wonderful time lounging and eating at the beach. Angie greeted us with such good energy and gave us a positive experience.
I recommend getting a day bed it includes a umbrella too. The kale salad is to die for.
the time at the hotel was amazing. the beach was a great experience. I get greeted wonderfully as soon as step in and I'm sat down gracefully by an attendant. the food was great. the shrimp salad was to die for. I will most definitely be coming back. Gerardo showd great care at the beach while we were here
Love this place! Both pools are so pretty, but my favorite the beach! I must just say wow! The moment you walk over, someone is waiting to greet you which a huge smile and a warm welcome! They then escort you to the tiki where they then set you up with someone else in order to get you seated. Wait staff is amazing too! particularly Rorenzo! What a wonderful young man, he was so attentive and answered a few questions on WiFi and about the property too. Gave us some good advice and he definitely didn’t let us down! Oh and yes! The beach has WiFi you guys! :) will come to this beach — every single time!!
