If you know anything about me, is that I’m a sucker for a great view. Whether, we are talking about a skyrise view, hotel balcony, or the coveted window seat, nine times out of ten, I’ll be there. What I find so magical about a high up view is that it always centers me and reminds me how tiny we are in a big world. Plus, it doesn’t hurt when what you're staring at is as breathtaking as the Atlantic.
Of course, I must now include some random story.
When I was little, I used to avoid/fight with my brother over having the window seat on airplanes. I, young and stupid Sloane, was all about having the extra leg room that came along with an aisle seat. Let us ignore all the problems with that logic, and rejoice that I’ve moved on from my bizarre fascination of the aisle seat.
Returning to 1 Hotels.
Perhaps one of the best, if not the best, views on South Beach comes from the rooftop of 1 Hotels. The rooftop pool and restaurant have 360 view of Miami; including downtown in the distance, all of the beach, and serious eye mileage of the Atlantic. If you’d like to see more great views, head downtown in this post here, or stay tuned for my Miami travel guide later this week.
And I’m sorry for the pain these photos have caused you if you the temperature is reading below 30 today. Me too. We can cry together.
