Look Out! Gansevoort South has Arrived.

The David Barton Gym and Spa at Gansevoort South

Located in the Meat Packing District in New York City is one of my favorite hotels - Hotel Gansevoort. Just a few short weeks ago the Gansevoort Hotel Group unveiled their new hotel in South Beach, Miami, Florida - Gansevoort South. While I have not yet had the pleasure of visiting, I am very excited about what I see. The hotel appears to be Most Excellent. The rooms are stylish and fun, the shark tank that extends the entire length of the lobby is absolutely fantastic and ultra cool David Barton Gym has found a new home at the Gansevoort South.


A 1920’s playground for the rich and famous is reborn as a magnet for trendsetters. Gansevoort South Hotel * Spa * Residences is the new southern outpost of New York City’s Hotel Gansevoort.

Gansevoort South boasts 334 guestrooms averaging over 730 sq ft. Sporting spectacular views of the ocean, bay, and shining city skyline, the guestrooms offer state-of-the-art technology, oversized bathrooms with separate shower and bath, and a blend of modern and dramatic design with suede walls punctuated by splashes of magenta and yellow, custom designed tables, sofas, lounge chairs and oversized mirrors in a range of materials from wood to leather.

Adding a playful air and a one-of-a-kind vibe to the spacious sun-filled rooms are custom 1930’s and 40’s style pin-up photographs. The 3,400 sq ft two master bedroom suite, the “Grande Dame,” features two balconies with ocean views, a gourmet kitchen and dining room, an entertainment room equipped with Sony’s finest electronics, Italian pool and fooseball tables, oversized jacuzzi baths and hand-picked custom designed furnishings.

Gansevoort South’s landscape showcases three oceanfront pools including a 110-foot rooftop pool, an expansive infinity-edge pool on the plaza level, a family friendly south pool, a mezzanine with private cabanas, and an exclusive oceanfront beach club. The outdoor areas are adorned with Gandia Blasco furniture, cabanas, and tee-pees which provide a perfectly unique setting.

With fine boutiques, restaurants, lounges and the first ever DavidBartonGym+Spa spread over more than 100,000 sq ft of luxury retail space, few shopping, dining and entertainment experiences in Miami Beach compare to Gansevoort South. STK by The ONE Group and Philippe by Philippe Chow offer a combination of the sexy New York steakhouse and exquisite Asian cuisine, while the 50-foot long shark tank dramatically divides the hotel lobby and Opium Group’s exclusive VIP lounge, Louis.

Gansevoort South is a sun-drenched paradise with playful amenities, family friendly surroundings, indoor and outdoor activities, spectacular views and a South Beach oceanfront location that is second to none.
