EAST, miami offers a supremely stylish and sumptuous stay in the heart of the city’s brickell district, forming part of the monumental, 4.9 million square-foot arquitectonica-designed development, brickell city centre. destination dining, personalized service, four pristine pools and an award-winning rooftop bar all contribute to creating a cultural haven of high-hospitality.

developed by swire properties — leading the establishment of large-scale mixed-use projects in asia and across the US — EAST, miami is designed with the unconventional traveler in mind. the elevated atmosphere and posh, yet playful environment appeal to those seeking a thrilling, yet tranquil place to call home-away-from-home. 352 guest rooms, eight suites and 89 residence suites, owned and operated by swire hotels, range in size from from 300 to 1,800 square feet and enjoy dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, and balconies with views of the miami skyline and biscayne bay.
outdoor environments are characterized by a posh, yet playful sensibility
the overall design of EAST, miami was envisioned by architectural firm arquitectonica, who integrated both traditional and modern day building techniques into the scheme. the property is a green certified development whose integration of a ‘climate ribbon’ has changed the face of sustainable building schemes. this architectural fixture — sited in the middle of brickell city centre’s commercial sector — uses natural wind currents to cool the space. undulating overhead, the sinuous canopy shields pedestrians below while also creating a gentle (and welcome) circulation of air in miami’s toasty temperatures.

guest rooms, restaurant and lounge interiors are adorned with art — an important component across all EAST hotels. local and national artists alike have contributed to a curated collection of sculptures, paintings, and photographs that seek to shed light on the city’s charm. saturated palettes of blues, yellows, whites, and ambers are seen across custom commissions, framed prints, and even an infinity room-style elevator, further defining EAST, miami as a a creative and cultural sanctuary.
