SLS South Beach Debuts on the East Coast


sbe has announced the opening of SLS Hotel South Beach, the company's first East Coast property. The hotel consists of 130 guest rooms and ten villas, designed by Philippe Starck.

No need to leave the hotel in search of nightlife, with Hyde Beach onsite, an oceanfront 8,000 square foot indoor and outdoor lounge with two pools. Guests can hang out with a cocktail inside a cabana while indulging in a poolside manicure or pedicure.
