See more from the Miami Beach Edition here--Guestrooms :: Market :: Minibar :: Basement

Art Basel is in full swing in Miami Beach, but we're still admiring the hotel work of art that is the Miami Beach Edition. Today, we're looking at the spa, fitness center and the pool area at the oceanfront resort.

The spa is located in the basement of the hotel, but on the opposite side from Basement, the Edition's recreational area. You have to take a separate staircase from the lobby, just before the Matador restaurant, to access the spa as well as the fitness center. It's not a far walk, but you can't take the elevator directly to the spa, so make sure towel off before you head back upstairs. When returning to your room after a massage, you will just have to be comfortable with your post-treatment face and hair. Or else, shower off in the locker rooms.

There are nine treatment rooms offering massages, body treatments, and facials, along with a Beauty Lounge where you can indulge in a manicure or pedicure, as well as a blow-out. (Not sure that's worth it though because, hello, this is Miami. Humidity will always win.)

However, the co-ed Relaxation Lounge is a large and stylishly serene place to relax, pre and post-treatment, since the spa actually offers mini-treatments here, like the Power Nap, which uses electro-stimulation to give you the benefits of a four-hour nap in 20 minutes. There's also an oxygen treatment where you essentially put on an oxygen mask while lounging on a daybed and flipping through Vanity Fair in the back of the room. It sounds ridiculous and decadent and we want to try it.

Why Everyone Needs to Stop in at Market at The Miami Beach Edition

Ian Schrager has been known to throw around the term "game-changer" when talking about his new hotels and the Miami Beach Edition Hotel is no exception.

The 294-room resort has plenty of traditional ways to keep you occupied during your stay whether it be relaxing at the pool, sunbathing on the beach, hiding away in the spa or just holing up with room service. There are also several non-traditional ways to stay occupied like bowling, ice-skating, or reliving your disco days in the Basement. (More on that coming soon, we promise.)

But the one part of Edition that seemed the most "game-changing" to us was Market, the modern diner concept from Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, located just off the lobby.

Market is unlike anything we've seen before in a hotel. Yes, we've seen grab-and-go markets and cafes in hotels, but let's be real, they've been just a step above an airport restaurant. But here, you have the accessibility of a grab-and-go spot, with the offerings of a Michelin-starred chef. Yet the space is so pretty, you won't want your food to go. You're going to want to sit down, enjoy your meal and take in the fascinating people-watching scene we've come to love about Miami Beach.

See more from the Miami Beach Edition here--Guestrooms :: Market :: Minibar :: Basement

Yesterday, we spent the night at the Miami Beach Edition, which soft-opened a few weeks ago, but is now ready to usher in the Art Basel madness festivities. We already gave you a sneak peek at the guest rooms, which thanks to the elegant touch of design firm Yabu Pushelberg, look very much like an Edition Hotel. Now, we’re ready to show you the full Edition. And there’s so much to show.

Just keep in mind, that aside from being the first Edition hotel in the continental U.S. (Waikiki in Hawaii is no more), this is very much a resort property.

See, what we lurved about the London Edition when we stayed there last March was that it felt like a place where we could hide away for a while. It was warm and cozy, yet very sophisticated and seductive. As for socializing, Berners Tavern restaurant is a must-do for dinner as is the reservation-only Punch Room for drinks. But those are both very short distances from the guest elevators. So dropping down for dinner or a drink is incredibly easy.

At the Miami Beach Edition, things are far more spread out, across three and a half acres in fact. But it truly is a triple the space, triple the pleasure kind of place. And it will take us triple the amount of time to talk about it all. So today, we're starting with the lobby.

Ladies and Gents, pull out your credit cards. The Miami Beach Edition is now taking reservations.

We got the email alert in our inbox today (although it was announced on Facebook yesterday) and quickly clicked over to the site. There we discovered that while the hotel will "premiere" in November, rooms aren't actually available until January 19, 2015. (UPDATE: We've been told that the hotel is definitely opening in November and that the reservations will get moved up as the opening date gets closer.) For now, rates on that opening Monday in January start at $579 a night for a standard king room. Someone pass us the smelling salts.

The Best Room to Book at The Hotel Victor in South Beach

December 9, 2013 at 4:53 PM | by | Comments (2)

GUESS THE HOTEL REVEALED!

Yes, once upon a time the Hotel Victor hosted a party with P. Diddy and penguins, in the middle of South Beach no less, but today the hotel has a decidedly upscale beach house vibe, rather than over-the-top party spot, all thanks to the new interiors from Yabu Pushelberg.

We got to peek at the $8 million worth of renovations in person the other week and right away we were impressed with the bright and airy lobby area which features communal tables topped with shiny new iMacs and plenty of other comfy lounge seating. (This is a vast improvement from the old days, aka 2006 when a bouncer stood watch at the door and the lobby had weird, dark and stormy vibe, complete with jelly fish sconces.)

At the front of the hotel, near the old entrance, (the new entrance is just off to the side of the existing one and leads guests right to the elevators) is a small but mighty bar that during the day, folds up and looks almost look like an ordinary cabinet. But at night, and during other lobby events, the cabinet unfolds to reveal a beautiful mirrored bar.

Peruse the photos below and keep reading for the Best Room to Book!
