Pool Scene in Miami
1 Hotel South Beach
The luxurious, 426-room 1 Hotel South Beach in Miami Beach opened in March 2015 after a complete renovation (it was formerly Perry South Beach, and the Gansevoort Miami Beach before that). The 1 Hotel brand is extremely eco-conscious and the entire hotel has environment-friendly features including salvaged wood, hemp mattresses, and take-home socks instead of disposable slippers. If lounging by pools is your thing, there are four to choose from -- a large pool on the main deck with a sexy vibe and speedy food-and-drink service; a sleek rooftop pool; the Cabana Pool, which converts into a hot tub; and the South Pool, which is the largest and closest to the beach. The pools are outfitted with extremely plush loungers and cabanas can be rented.
