A New Lifestyle Hotel on Ocean Drive Is Set to Open

The Gabriel South Beach, Curio Collection by Hilton will open on Miami Beach this fall. The hotel is the sister property to The Gabriel Miami, Curio Collection by Hilton, located in downtown Miami. It will feature 132 guest rooms and suites and two pools, including a glass-bottom pool on the roof overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. 

The property is a Curio Collection by Hilton, which includes a global portfolio of more than 100 one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts in nearly 30 countries and territories. It is owned by CGI Merchant Group (CGI), a global investment management firm focusing on real estate and private equity. The Gabriel South Beach will comprise Conscious Certified Hotels (CCH), CGI’s collection of socially-minded hotel properties throughout North America and the Caribbean.

“After the recent success of the first Gabriel Miami, located in Downtown Miami, the Gabriel hotel brand will continue to expand,” says CGI Merchant Group (CGI), founder and CEO, Raoul Thomas. “The Gabriel South Beach’s new presence on Ocean Drive will be part of the revitalization of Miami Beach’s famous cultural haven, restoring the area’s trademark elegance and luster as an Art Deco destination in South Florida.”

Located at 640 Ocean Drive, The Gabriel South Beach comprises four individual buildings – including the historic Park Central Hotel, Heathcote Apartments and the Imperial Hotel. Guests will be able to enjoy classic Art Deco designs and other architecture features synonymous with Miami Beach. The Gabriel South Beach will also be home to two destination restaurants, Meet Dalia and Meet Mia, by INK Entertainment, one of North America’s leading lifestyle and entertainment companies. It will feature 12 signature balcony suites and 14 one-bedroom suites; three restaurants and bars; one ground-level pool; one rooftop, glass-bottom pool; and one rooftop sun deck, in addition to two signature restaurants. Amenities offered include Little Havana-based Exquisito Chocolates, branded beach cruisers, Peloton bikes in the hotel’s fitness center and On the Rocks Cocktails at all guest room minibars.

Navigate Design was tasked with the design and decor features, which incorporate Miami’s modern aesthetics with Floridian accents. Award-winning designer Adriana Hoyos will add sustainable and environmental elements to the property. 

Reservations are now being accepted with rates starting at $249 per night. Opening specials include the Dine with Dalia package, consisting of a $100 Food and Beverage credit, a bottle of wine at arrival, and early check-in based on availability.
