Fans of the Magic City are most likely well acquainted with the abundance of street art, culture, and nightlife that the Wynwood arts district has to offer. Arlo Wynwood, which opened in the fall of 2022, gives guests the opportunity to stay in the bustling heart of all this art and activity, with plenty of comfortable and convenient amenities on hand for a seamless stay.
Arlo Wynwood was the first hotel to open in the neighborhood, and its design throughout flaunts the brand’s pride in this fact, as evidenced by the colorful mural by Miami-based artist Hoxxoh that graces the exterior walls, and the work of many more local and international artists featured inside the hotel.
The 217-room, nine-story Arlo Wynwood features a sleek, eclectic aesthetic, perfected by the award-winning design firm Meyer Davis. Rooms are light and airy, with white-oak furnishings, warm, organic details, and polished finishes. All the modern tech travelers need is at the ready, including bedside wireless charging stations, Bluetooth radios, and 55″ LED TVs with STAYCAST capabilities.
The mix of clean lines and industrial influences can also be seen in the design of the expansive lobby living room and ground-floor, indoor/outdoor MaryGold’s restaurant. Helmed by Chef Brad Kilgore, MaryGold’s is a modern American brasserie showcasing fresh Floridian ingredients. Sample dishes include Jerk Oxtail Beignets, Local Catch, and Scallop Crudo. The seasonal menus at MaryGold’s are complemented by a creative cocktail menu, along with beers from local breweries, and a robust wine list representing “New World” and “Old World” selections by the glass and the bottle.
Arlo Wynwood’s lush courtyard bar, Higher Ground, and ART Rooftop, the sprawling poolside bar and eatery atop the hotel, are also lively venues for drinks and light bites. Both spaces host regular events and pop-ups, from standup comedy nights to fashion showcases and live DJ sessions. ART Wynwood, with its panoramic city skyline views, is also the home of Sunset Swim Club, held on select Saturdays from 5pm–9pm. These golden-hour gatherings offer complimentary rooftop access for guests and locals, who can come and enjoy live DJs spinning alongside the 76-foot-long heated pool. Food and drinks are available for purchase and cabanas with their own couches, mini fridges and TVs are available to rent.
Catering to guests’ increasing demands for wellness amenities, Arlo Wynwood boasts a private yoga deck where regular classes led by local studio YO BK are held. Thanks to a partnership with Alo Moves, the online fitness arm of yoga apparel brand Alo, Arlo guests also have access to more than 3,000 on-demand online yoga, Pilates, strength, meditation, and HIIT classes — which they can take from the comfort of their room. (Alo yoga mats are provided as well.) For more opportunities to sweat it out, the hotel’s fitness center features treadmills, ellipticals, strength equipment and Pelotons. For those who like to cycle through real-life streets, Arlo Wynwood offers complimentary bikes for exploring the (easy-to-navigate-on-two-wheels) neighborhood. Along with the Wynwood Art Walk tours available in the district, perusing Wynwood’s murals by bike may be one of the most unique art gallery experiences on the planet.
Juice shops, cafes, boutiques, and bars all share the Wynwood arts district with the hotel, and the neighborhood is centrally located for all kinds of Miami adventures. Situated just north of Miami’s downtown, Wynwood is a thirteen-minute drive or rideshare from Miami International Airport, and about 20 minutes from Miami Beach. With Miami’s role as the cruise capital of the world, Arlo Wynwood also makes a great pre- or post-cruise option, given its location less than 15 minutes from the Port of Miami.
Whether you or your clients are new to the neighborhood, or are Wynwood regulars, you’ll love the convenience of having a stylish and comfortable place to stay without needing to leave the district. Learn more about Arlo Wynwood at arlohotels.com/wynwood.
