Being that we are members of Starwood Preferred Guests, we chose to stay at the W South Beach in Miami. For those of you who are not familiar with Starwood - become familiar! It is the best rewards program out there for anyone that loves to travel.
Typical with W's trademark style, the South Beach location is chic and modern. The "living room" area, which is W's innovative take on the traditional hotel lobby, encompasses five separate lounge areas, large scale art and a library with numerous beautiful coffee table books.
The bar/ lounge was stunning boasting Allegro Vivace Suspension lights by Foscarini and purple leather tufted ottomans. If only I could think of an appropriate place to put one of those ottomans in my home!
The rooms were sleek but did not live up to the same visual appeal and attention to detail in the public spaces.
Have any of you visited the W South Beach? What did you think of the design?
I especially loved these red velvet lounge chairs that popped out amongst the furnishings mostly neutral palette.
