    1 Hotel South Beach pool.jpg

    1 Hotel South Beach is a 5-star, luxury boutique resort that occupies an entire city block on Collins Avenue, South Beach Miami and sits directly on 600 feet of pristine beachfront. It is the first “Eco Chic” brand of CEO Barry Sternlicht, who founded the W Hotel brand.

    They use Teslas as their house car to transport guests around Miami Beach. Currently they only allow Teslas to be parked out front and have three full power Tesla High Power Wall Connectors in their driveway.

    Candidly the resort is both exclusive and expensive with normal nightly rates starting at over $500/night.

    We received an excellent rate of $329/night for a 700 sqf ft King Room with wrap around couches based on a minimum two night stay. A 20% discount off any other room type is also offered. Our club is being provided these special discounts without a minimum committed block of rooms.

    Club members may extend their stay at this rate by adding nights directly before or after our weekend dates.

    The resort will also provide complimentary Valet parking and Charging stations upon availability for all Teslas.

    On July 8th a small group from the Southwest and Southeast Regions spent a couple of days at a unique 5-star hotel, 1 Hotel South Beach. We also took the opportunity to organize an impromptu meet-up at 1 RoofTop, the fabulous rooftop lounge, with some of our local club members. We had a total of 14 members and their guests and the General Manager of RoofTop treated our group to a few cocktails. Following that we had a fantastic dinner at the Beachcraft Restaurant.

    1 Hotel South Beach is an ideal place for Tesla owners to spend some time. It is exceptionally environmentally conscious. Three Teslas serve as the “house cars” dropping off guest at points of interest along South Beach. The hotel also has three Tesla High Power Wall Connectors managed by valet operations. Valet services were complimentary for Tesla owners.

    If there is interest, this location would a good place for club members in the Southeast Region to meet on a recurring basis.

    Here's some photos:
