Travel

1 Hotels have quietly been popping up in our favorite neighborhoods over the past few years—first in New York, and then in Brooklyn, but South Beach, with its laid-back pool scene right along the waterfront, might just be our favorite so far. The décor is decidedly minimalist, from the white-washed pool lounges and umbrellas to reclaimed wood walls and cozy white linens in the bedrooms. The light aesthetic feels at once at home in South Beach, yet more zen and relaxing than some of the other hotels in the area, so it’s a perfect pick if you’re in town on business, as the rooms feel like a complete escape from the city. Another major pull here is the food: With two Tom Colicchio restaurants on site, a newer, plant-focused debut by Matthew Kenney, a farm stand with local produce, a juice bar, and a rooftop bar, they’ve got all the bases covered. Plus, there’s the serene British Bamford Haybarn Spa, a SoulCycle, and a legit 14,000-square-foot gym space (that’s Spartan certified, if that’s your thing).
