A little over a year after Aloft South Beach sold for $105 million to Rockpoint Group and The Gates Hotel South Beach, a DoubleTree by Hilton property, opened its redesigned doors just south of 24th Street and Collins Avenue in Miami Beach (across from the 1 Hotel).
The entrance, the lobby bar, and the pool deck were all updated, in addition to the “reimagined” 235 guest rooms. Dutch East Design, a New York-based interior and architectural design firm, and Focus Lighting, an architectural lighting design firm, collaborated on the transformation. Artwork by Jorge De La Torriente is featured in the lobby, the restaurant, and the guest rooms.
The new look “blends Art Deco-inspired architecture with modern comfort and vintage glamour to pay homage to The Magic City’s community,” per the release. The hotel also includes a new Mexican-inspired restaurant called Agaveros Cantina; “Five Feet to Fitness,” a wellness initiative that includes a gym in addition to in-room meditation chairs; and bicycles provided by Martone Cycling.
The hotel is part of The Gates Gallery of Hotels, which is managed by Highgate.
