Generator Miami is now open at 3120 Collins Ave. The project, overseen by Argent Design, offers up 300 beds in 105 rooms, with an eye toward blending design, low prices and engaging social environments. And when we say low prices, we mean low prices: opening rates start at $20 for beds in shared accommodations and $95 for private rooms with ensuite bathrooms.
The concept is popular in Europe: Generator reports that the repeat-stay rate for guests is 45 percent.
Here’s what the hotel looks like:
The pool area
The pool is the main “social focus” for Generator (the beach, for the record, is about 100 feet away). This is the first Generator property with a pool.
The Premium King is a traditional room.
Six-bed dormitory style rooms are available, too.
Generator Miami’s director of bar and restaurant concepts is Gui Jaroschy, who’s best known for launching Broken Shaker. So expect really creative cocktails.
Expect the unexpected in the public areas. Sure, you can play pool – but you may also join in yoga classes, rap battles and mixology demos.
The Pillow Room
Or you can just chill in this cozy spot with a view of the pool.
