Today Is Opening Day For The SLS Brickell Hotel

Related Group’s 52-story SLS Brickell will welcome hotel guests for the first time ever today (despite delays caused by Hurricane Matthew).

The tower is now officially open, four years after it was conceived by the developer. Construction began in January 2014, or about 33 months ago.

There are 124 hotel rooms, 450 condo units, and two restaurants by Michael Schwartz and José Andrés. Closings haven’t yet been recorded on the condo units.

If you want to be among the first to stay in the hotel tonight, rooms are still available from $249.

Lobby doesn’t impress much…

Why are all of these new towers in Brickell painted in that ugly battleship grey? Could they have at least chosen a brighter more elegant color? Dull, boring, depressing grey. Brickell City Center, Brickell Heights, parts of MyBrickell and Brickell House all have that shade. Has there been a sale on grey that I haven’t noticed?

Who agrees that this color is a big eye sore? And if so, what what you choose? I’d go for Greek colors – Blue and White.

Thank God you are not the developer

My thoughts exactly Brickellite. The only thing more dull is the dark gray Gotham condo down the street AKA Cassa Brickell.

Couldn’t agree more…If you are at the Sugar Bar on top of the East Hotel you can see the ugly and depressing grey concrete color first hand and very close with all the imperfections.

Are they going to put the giant ‘SLS’ letters on the top of hotel as shown on the renderings?

They paint most of the buildings on ugly grey color and then…,,,,to our surprise, amusement or disgusts……
,
They put all the colors of the rainbow in that ugly wall ( work of Art) that looks like was done by one of my 3 year old patients!!!

Fortunately I live on Brickell key ( someone one time , probably out of envy, called it “ant farm”) where the buildings have decent colors!!!
