Chic stays with Tabitha Simmons

It's green yet glamorous, fun but also fearsomely followed through. Room keys are fashioned out of recycled wood and beds have hemp mattresses covered in organic linen. In the wardrobes are hangers cut from cardboard, made from old packaging, and in the shower there are sand timers set to five minutes. The bedrooms are huge and bright, airy and supremely calming – a refreshing change from Miami's usual high-tempo vibe.

Miami for me is always a beach fix, a blast of heat away from New York's winters. There's a string of hotels along this stretch of South Beach, and if you wander out from 1 Hotel, you're on the sand. But anyone can see Miami from sea level; the best view here is up on the roof – it's incredible. The whole of Miami stretches out below while I sit up there in the sky, sipping tequila and soda by the pool.
