Hotel Greystone, located at the vibrant crossroads of Collins Avenue and 20th Street in Miami Beach, is a historic and iconic art deco boutique hotel that offers a fusion of intimate spaces, innovative cuisine, and a hyperlocal ethos. 

Recently opened in September 2021, this award-winning hotel is a collaboration between Salt Hotels and B Group Capital, known for their exceptional personalized service and expertise in the hospitality industry. 

With its rich history and modern amenities, this property is a true expression of Miami Beach’s past, present, and future. Millennial was privileged to be offered an exclusive stay in one of the hotel’s esteemed Penthouse Suites and we could not be happier with the experience. 

Impeccable Accommodations 

Located on the third-floor, Hotel Greystone’s Penthouse Suites epitomize luxury and indulgence. Each suite offers an exquisite indoor-outdoor living experience.

The interior evokes a “Tulum meets Miami” aesthetic, featuring two woven basket chandeliers, a sand-toned linen chaise, and soft indirect lighting that creates tranquil ambiance. 

An undeniable highlight in this room is, of course, the accordion sliding doors that lead to a private terrace patio, complete with astro-turf grass, oversized linen patio furniture, an outdoor shower, and a full spectrum jetted hot tub with rotating LED lights. 

The attention to detail and the use of high-quality materials elevate the experience to sheer perfection.

Personalized Service and Thoughtful Touches

Hotel Greystone ensures that every guest’s needs are met with utmost care. Instead of a traditional call-out phone, all rooms are equipped with a tablet that allow for easy concierge access and scheduled housekeeping.

The custom pillow-top mattress and summer featherweight duvet ensure a restful night’s sleep, while the shower features a rainfall faucet and is stocked with botanical-infused products from the renowned Malin & Goetz brand.

Relaxation and Refreshment at Hotel Greystone

The hotel offers various spaces for rest and rejuvenation. The rooftop oasis provides a serene escape from the bustling city, allowing guests to unwind poolside while enjoying music, craft cocktails, and light bites. 

Although the rooftop doesn’t quite have its own on-site bar just yet, a libation station has been earmarked for an area that is often used for events and guest programming.
