1 Hotels, Pure & Natural

1 Hotel South Beach I love this hotel! It's one of my favorite places in Miami to work from. The lobby is opened, with lots of natural light and plenty of nooks to settle into. There is a great juice bar in the lobby called Nativ Made. The chopped salad is also a favorite at Beachcraft, the hotel's signature restaurant.
