The Eclectic Edition at Miami Beach

Sleek, sophisticated and classy, the Miami Beach Edition wears its modern style with pride. Florida’s natural sunlight suffuses the hotel lobby through unblemished windows, while pristine white interiors, gilded pillars and abundant plants make for a simple but lavish design; one that remains tastefully consistent throughout the hotel, as envisioned by hotelier Ian Schrager. It’s a tropical Eden characterized by chic social spaces, gaping views of the Atlantic, and a coveted location in one of the most vibrant cities in the country. Ideally situated along the bustling South Beach strip, amidst the character and eclectic energy of Miami, the Edition affords access to local venues, iconic attractions, exceptional restaurants and a sprawling coastline. Guests are just a stroll away from the fashion outlets of Lincoln Road, as well as the bohemian Art Deco District. The urban resort offers the personalized services typical of boutique hotels with the extensive amenities of a large one. It spoils its privileged residents with a luxury spa and fitness center, an exclusive beach club membership, a secluded nook just off the beach known as Sandbox and two lush outdoor pools surrounded by luxury cabanas outfitted with private safes, televisions and mini refrigerators.

The Edition’s 294 rooms and suites prove that simplicity can be elegant. Each capacious unit is individually designed with soft, neutral colors, maintaining the hotels contemporary style with a minimalist touch. With refined wooden walls, polished white interiors and marble bathrooms, there’s little to disparage over these luxurious spaces. The Penthouse suite boasts 2,284 square feet, white and almond interiors and five balconies overlooking the ocean. For a step above, the resort offers twenty-eight one and two-level bungalows with oceanfront and city views. The enchanting bi-level Bungalow Penthouse occupies 688 square feet, including a 1,900 square foot wrap around balcony. It also features a private elevator, a rooftop plunge pool and captivating views of South Beach.

However, as lavish as these units may be, they’re incomparable to the Edition’s ultimate dwelling, The Residences. Designed by the esteemed architect John Pawson, these private domiciles are easily the most accommodating and palatial of any resort in the city. The Residences sit on the top floors of the hotel and the adjacent eighteen-story tower, providing privacy, individuality, the benefit of ownership and access to exclusive amenities, services and privileges. Massive windows admit natural light from every corner of this modern abode, while open living and dining rooms feature high walls and stylish furnishings. The home even features a private entrance and an anonymous “celebrity” ingress.

Unique venues and eccentric spaces are what truly separate the Edition from other hotels of its kind. Its pulsating Basement is a multidimensional entertainment hub that embraces the city’s vitality, allowing guests and locals alike to experience a variety of dazzling environments.

Basement Miami is an avant-garde micro-club that adds a new layer to the South Beach nightlife, exhibiting a 21st Century homage to Ian Schrager’s iconic Studio 54. Beneath ostentatious lights and projection effects by renowned lighting designer Patrick Woodroffe, guests can dance endlessly to state-of-the-art sound systems and a world class lineup of DJs.

Prelude your nightclub experience at the animated Basement Bowl and Skate, which has been known to host such prominent celebrities as Drake and Post Malone. The venue features a two-lane bowling alley lit with spectacular effect, as well as a 2,000 square foot ice skating rink illuminated by a color-shifting surface, while a fully stocked bar perfectly complements the eclectic atmosphere.

In addition to its marvelous venues and heavenly suites, the Edition also boasts several dining spaces in a diversity of settings. In a relaxing beach scene, complemented by ocean views and island tunes, Tropicale offers fresh and light food selections al fresco style. At the heart of the hotel, Lobby Bar pays homage to 1950s Miami Beach with glamorous detail featuring original gold and marble columns, a Latin-inspired soundtrack and an affluent interior. Miami Edition’s signature restaurant, the circular Matador Room, enthralls guests with a chic 1940s atmosphere, as well as innovative cuisine inspired by South American, Caribbean and Spanish flavors developed by Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Finally, overlooking the hotel’s pool deck, the black walnut-paneled Matador Bar celebrates a classic cocktail experience, showcasing high walls overlayed with photographs from renowned photographer Lucien Clergue’s and a floating bar at its center surrounded by velvet furnishings.
