Understandably, we've been very NYC-centric when it comes to Hotel Openings this summer. But, looking ahead, we're also excited about all the hotels coming to Miami this fall. So we were disappointed to learn that the opening of Soho Beach House has been pushed back from September to November 1st. But the good news? You can start planning your cold-weather escape, because the hotel part of the project is now taking reservations, with rooms starting at $325 a night.

We know--that's kind of steep, but this is a Soho House, and you're paying for exclusivity, unlike another expensive but pretty hotel we love in South Beach.

Unfortunately, Soho Beach House's website is still only showing sketches like this one. But here's what we know from the descriptions of the rooms:

Soho Beach House has fifty bedrooms situated over fifteen floors. There are six categories of room, all of them combining vintage furniture and vibrant textiles to create an aura of South American glamour in the heart of Miami.

And this:

Bright light from the ocean contrasts with sophisticated dark wooden beds and furniture in the Beachside rooms. All rooms offer the luxury of oversized bathrooms and soaking tubs.

That $325 rate is for a Bayside King with views of the Intracoastal and city skyline. It does sound roomy enough, though, at 420–580 sq ft.

The Beachside Rooms start at approximately 650 sq ft, with rates from $365 a night. But we're thinking you'll want to avoid what they're calling the Side Rooms—three "intimate and cozy" rooms in the original Art Deco section of the property, measuring 350–400 sq ft. (We didn't see rate info for these, but we're guessing they'll be around $300 a night. Hopefully less!)

Rooms aside, Soho Beach House members and hotel guests will also have access to the Cowshed Spa and gym, the 100-ft long pool, a Tiki Bar with outdoor grill and cinema, Cecconi's Garden restaurant, a drawing room, club bar, indoor screening room, and a plunge pool on the 8th floor, which will also be available for private parties.

Two parting thoughts: How long before Cristiano Ronaldo shows up? And we hope Soho Beach House does a better job at managing their member list and ettiquete than its sister up in NYC.
