The Gabriel South Beach Recognized in Time’s List of World’s Greatest Places

The Gabriel South Beach, Curio Collection by Hilton on Ocean Drive in South Beach was included in TIME’s third annual list of the World’s Greatest Places, which highlights 50 extraordinary travel destinations worldwide. The Gabriel South Beach was featured as one of Miami’s exciting new hotels, earning a spot on the 2022 list. To compile this list, TIME solicited nominations of places, including countries, regions, cities and towns, from its international network of correspondents and contributors. 

“To be included in TIME’s listing of World’s Greatest Places within a year of opening The Gabriel South Beach is an honor,” Nicholas Siracusa says, General Manager at The Gabriel South Beach. “This accolade is attributed to our fantastic team who work daily to create experiences for travelers visiting Miami, and to our guests, who leave the hotel with unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.” 

To assemble the annual list of the World’s Greatest Places, TIME solicited nominations across a variety of categories, such as museums, parks, bars, restaurants, theme parks, cruises and hotels, from the publication’s editors and correspondents around the world as well as dozens of industry experts. The experts evaluated each category based on critical factors, including quality, originality, innovation, sustainability and influence.

The Gabriel South Beach features the classic Art Deco design synonymous with Miami Beach and offers two pools, including a glass bottom pool on the roof overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The property provides 132 guest rooms, 12 signature balcony suites and 14 one-bedroom suites, and three restaurants and bars comprising three individual historic buildings—including the Park Central Hotel of Desi Arnaz’s conga line fame, Heathcote Apartments and the Imperial Hotel. The hotel blends Art Deco modernism with tropical allure by featuring a 30-foot-tall mural by the French-born, Los Angeles-based street artist Mr. Brainwash, known for his large-scale installations and prints of celebrities.

The complete list of TIME World’s Greatest Places list will be featured in the July 25, 2022 double issue of TIME, now available on newsstands.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
