1 Hotel Opens In South Beach Next Week With Sky-High Rates (And Possibly A Bee Farm)

1 Hotel South Beach is set to open next week (March 23.)

The eco-friendly hotel is accepting reservations beginning on that date, although they are requiring a minimum three night stay due to high demand created by spring break. Rates for the week start at $1,498 per night, with a $25 resort fee.

Barry Sternlicht, the creator of the brand, told the New York Times earlier this month that the hotel chain’s properties would have bee farms, overseen by a director of ecological impact.

Food at the resort will be farm-to-table and mostly locally sourced. One of the restaurateurs said that he hopes to find a local supplier for lionfish, with the goal of killing off the invasive species.

Isn’t all food from farms?

“Rates for the week start at $1,498 per night, with a $25 resort fee.”

$25 resort fee?

Ok look, I was alright with the $1,498 per night room rate but that exorbitant $25 resort fee just killed any chance of me ever renting a room in this place.

I agree with you the resort fee is not reasonable. It is money in the pocket.

The price is for this reason:
100$ hotel room price per night
1398$ medical fees for bee stings!!!
25$ Benadryl or Calamine Lotion

If you pay 1500 $ a night for a hotel room you need to eat “farm food” because you probably have the same IQ of a cow or a mule!!!

Possible the hotel will be use to have the family members or friends of the people that bought a condo for 6,000$ sq foot at the Faena building next to the Hotel

Every hotel requires a 3 night stay in high season. I have worked in hotels all my life and this is absolutely normal.

Price has to make up for the tens of millions over budget and two year construction lateness.

Obviously all you turds are just upset you can’t afford to stay at such a nice place.. You think they’re going to make it cost efficient for people who don’t achieve anything but employee of the month at their 9-5? Yes all food is from farms, mostly chemical and hormone pumped farms. There’s a reason why people eat local and it’s not because we think we’re better than everyone else, we just know better.
