in List 2016: The Best New Hotels on the Planet:
1 Hotel South Beach in Miami Beach
South Beach is famous for many things—but truly comfortable, non-nightlife-centric hotels are not its strong suit. That’s what makes this oceanfront property, the debut effort from a new green-leaning brand, all the more refreshing. The smallest rooms start at a palatial 700 square feet; they have bathtubs you could almost swim in, cushy white sectionals, and king-size beds raised on reclaimed-wood platforms.
The eco-friendly touches include a living wall on the façade, organic-cotton sheets, and triple-filtered water in the taps (begone, plastic bottles). But this is Miami, after all—so there are four Instagram-worthy pools, including one on the rooftop. 1hotels.com; doubles from $699.
