While it’s going to take some time until Canadians can engage in worry-free travel, one spot on our list is Pharrell’s newest endeavour — The Goodtime Hotel which just opened in Miami.
The Goodtime Hotel is located at Miami Beach’s Washington Avenue and 6th Street, the 266-room property has a dreamy Art Deco vibe and spans over nearly 100,000 square feet of public space. “We want The Goodtime Hotel to impart a feeling of both revitalization and that rare, exciting thrill that takes over when you discover something special,” says Pharrell Williams in a release. “It’s that adrenaline-fueled sensation of entering a whole new setting and a whole new mindset. This place will provide a natural good time, for all who come through.”
This is the first collaborative lifestyle hotel brand from David Grutman of Groot Hospitality and Pharrell Williams. The pair also teamed up with real estate developers Michael Fascitelli and Eric Birnbaum of Imperial Companies and worked closely with architect Morris Adjmi, designer Ken Fulk and landscape architect Raymond Jungles to develop the project into what it is today. The end result is a space that promotes R&R as well as an active experience.
“My first hotel needed to break the mold,” says David Grutman. “I wanted to provide the 360-degree Groot Hospitality experience that our other venues are known for, but I also wanted to add more. This is about providing a getaway within a town that’s already known as a vacation spot. When you arrive at the hotel, and walk through our doors, it becomes a full on experience. When you’re at the Goodtime, we want you to feel like your worries and anxieties have been left outside. I am proud to have worked closely with Pharrell, Michael, Eric and Ken Fulk on bringing this hotel to life.”
Visitors and guests can enjoy lounging poolside and Mediterranean fare at Strawberry Moon, a restaurant and 30,000 square foot pool club, that also serves up a full array of specialty cocktails for lunch and dinner, inside or poolside.
The Goodtime Hotel officially opened its doors this week and to celebrate, there was a star-studded bash. Stars like David & Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian West, Maluma, Future, and more were all on-site to check out what we’re calling Miami’s newest hotspot.
