Occupying an entire city block on Collins Avenue from 23rd to 24th streets, 1 Hotel South Beach sits directly on 600 feet of pristine beach front. The property offers unparalleled views of the Atlantic Ocean, Miami’s nature paradise Biscayne Bay and Down town Miami’s ever-expanding
skyline. Throughout the 426-room hotel, the celebration of nature is evident, from the graceful twist of driftwood furnishings to the ever-present sounds of the ocean and abundance of living, natural material.
In a celebration of nature and the locales surrounding the properties, 1 Hotel South Beach brings the outside in with living greenery throughout the guest experience, from the instant they approach a 1 Hotel until the moment they enter their room. Materials for construction and furnishings are regional, reclaimed, or repurposed whenever possible. This includes saving Colorado beetle kill pine to create headboards and Ipe wood from the property’s original board walk to cover the redesigned pool deck.
The new property was designed from existing buildings that were overhauled to adhere to the brand’s standards for less consumption and more conservation. Every aspect has been updated, such as: installing state- of-the-art, energy efficient heating and cooling systems; installing motion sensors; using LED illumination to reduce electrical demands and heat build-up from lighting; using low V.O.C. paints, adhesives, sealants and finishes; installing Triple Clear Water filters in all taps, sinks, and showers; and using low- flow plumbing fixtures to conserve water. The 1 Hotel keeps its luxury, whilst also maintaining an ecologically friendly building.
