Hotel Amenities

The Hotel (formerly the Tiffany) has a 1939 edifice, original terrazzo floors and a rooftop terrace, and has been entirely re-envisioned by designer Todd Oldham. The result is colorful, highly stylized, yet comfortable. The jewel-toned lobby has original Deco-era circular windows, and a wooden barrier with palm trees separates the Inner Garden dining room from the reception area. Guests--sometimes famous--come for the details, which include an egg-shaped banquette in green velvet and a mosaic-glass mirror in shades of gold. The Wish bar has a playful Moorish design. The hotel offers 65 square meters of meeting space.

Aside from an excellent location one block from the ocean in a South Beach shopping strip, the Hotel distinguishes itself with a rooftop pool featuring an unobstructed ocean view. Several cabanas line the intimate pool area with massage services available.

The Hotel of South Beach provides two beachside chaise longues for two guests per room. Massage services are available in guestrooms and on the pool deck. Guests receive a discount on treatments at the nearby Le Spa Lancome.

Complimentary wireless Internet access is available throughout the hotel. A 24-hour business center and meeting room are on site, and additional meeting space is available in the Kenneth Cole building across the street, owned by the hotel. ATM/banking facilities are also available.
