Since opening earlier this year, 1 Hotel South Beach has been one of the most buzzed-about accommodations in the area. Visitors have been quick to laud the hotel to anyone who will listen, and are vocal in their praise for every aspect of the rooms, service, atmosphere and food.
The first thing you notice about 1 Hotel South Beach is the look. The 17-story Collins Ave. building, erected in 1925, has undergone an extraordinary transformation under the watchful eye of design studio Meyer Davis. Organic materials – stone, wood and warm textiles – throughout the space brings a natural serenity to the hotel that reflects its environmental commitment (more on that later).
The 426 rooms and suites at 1 Hotel South Beach are spacious, to say the least. King rooms start at 700 square feet, and things go up from there. Awake from a deep sleep on the hemp-blend Keetsa mattress and peer out at the city or ocean through floor-to-ceiling windows from the bed’s raised oak platform.
At the helm of Beachcraft, 1 Hotel South Beach’s top-notch eatery, is none other than Tom Colicchio, five-time James Beard winner and judge on Food Network’s Top Chef. Locally caught fish and natural meats drive the menu at Beachcraft, with a fully stocked raw bar, pasta and salads all made in the eatery’s open kitchen fleshing out the selection. The two-level restaurant is already garnering rave reviews from all who have dined there.
1 Hotel South Beach is also a decidedly green hotel, although it does so with a swagger and style that doesn’t sacrifice luxury or comfort. The hotel’s linens are all 100 per cent organic furnishings are made from salvaged driftwood, the lobby features a farmstand and visitors’ travel needs are met with a fleet of Tesla electric vehicles.
