Wynwood Prepares for Opening of First Hotel in October 

Arlo Wynwood will become the first hotel to open in Wynwood when it debuts in October. The 217-room, nine-story hotel will serve as the cultural hub for residents and visitors while offering guests prime access to the region’s best creative culture. Arlo Hotels, an independent, experience-driven hotel brand with locations in Miami Beach and New York City’s Midtown, NoMad and SoHo neighborhoods, is developing the property, which will feature guest rooms starting at $239 per night.

“Wynwood is one of the most vibrant districts in Miami,” Oleg Pavlov says, CEO of Quadrum Global and founder of Arlo Hotels. “We’ve been eager to develop a hotel in the neighborhood and with an increasing number of tech-forward businesses moving their headquarters to Wynwood, we feel this is a great time. The year-over-year hotel occupancy in the broader downtown market has grown nearly 30%. We’re thrilled to debut Arlo Wynwood as the premier hotel in the neighborhood. The property will embody Wynwood’s renowned artistic flair and offer first-rate restaurants, bars, wellness programming and entertainment for guests and locals alike.”

The new hotel was designed by Meyer Davis, an award-winning firm specializing in global, upscale commercial design. Arlo Wynwood will feature an expansive living room and lounge areas throughout the property to encourage creative connections and friendly interactions between guests, staff and the local community. Modern guest rooms feature white-oak furnishings and in-room amenities include tech-friendly features, such as bedside wireless charging stations, Bluetooth radios, 5” LED TVs featuring staycast capabilities, complimentary WiFi, mini-fridges, Nespresso coffee machines and Pharmacopia bath products.

A highlight of Arlo Wynwood is a rooftop complete with a pool, private cabanas, a bar and café and a yoga deck. Other property features include a 2,666-square-foot destination restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, plus three bars, a bodega and a pool table. Guests will also access a state-of-the-art fitness center and complimentary bikes to explore the neighborhood conveniently. 

The property will offer a steady beat of programming, including daily yoga classes led by local favorite YO BK and weekly meditation sessions open to hotel guests and locals. It will also feature a weekly lineup of local guest DJs and live music activations.

“Offering our guests authentic, destination-specific experiences is at the heart of the Arlo brand and this property serves as a conduit to the Wynwood lifestyle,” Jennifer Hiblum says, General Manager of Arlo Wynwood. “Capturing this community’s unique spirit throughout our spaces is of utmost importance to us, so we’re collaborating with local artists and musicians who represent the best of this region.”

Arlo Wynwood will also reflect its creative neighbor by serving as a living canvas for a curated group of artists displaying more than 250 works of art. On the yoga deck, Florida-based collage artist Ari Robinson is creating a plexiglass mural featuring overlapping organic shapes of varying sizes and hues that will produce unique color combinations, shadows and reflections for a feeling of calm. The property’s exterior walls will feature works by Miami-based artist Hoxxoh and MILAGROS Collective, whose co-founders Felici Asteinza and Joey Fillastre will create site-specific work, exploring the history of the community through vast arrangements of color and lines. 

“It is hard to believe that despite attracting more than 10 million visitors annually, we are just now getting ready to open the first hotel in Wynwood,” Manny Gonzalez says, Executive Director of the Wynwood Business Improvement District. “We are thrilled Arlo Hotels is the first hotel brand opening in the district. We are attracting a new generation of creatives and entrepreneurs who want to live, work, eat, play and learn in our community and Arlo will serve them well as their home away from home or remote workspace where inspiration awaits.”

BIOGRAPHY

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.
