Gale Miami Hotel & Residences In Downtown Prepares To Open This Week - Miami Luxury Homes
BY Michael Light / On May 30, 2024

The grand opening of Gale Miami Hotel & Residences in Downtown Miami is upon us at last, with the new tower accepting reservations beginning this weekend. While this is an obvious win for tourists and visitors, it is also beneficial for passive real estate investors who prefer to retain the ability to utilize their property when they are in town.

Gale Miami Hotel & Residences broke ground in February of 2021 under the name Natiivo at 601 NE 1st Avenue in Downtown Miami. The 51-story tower quickly sold its 240 investment opportunities, which are broken down into 80 hotel rooms and 160 condo-hotel residences.

The Gale Miami – For Condo-Hotel Investors

The condo-hotel residences range in size from 410-square-foot studios to 910-square-foot options with two bedrooms. The rooms and suites are available for either nightly bookings or short-term rentals with the hotel managing the investments for the owners. When visiting, owners reserve the right to utilize their units rather than earning returns.

Many of the units are set up exactly as condo units with full-sized kitchens and washer/dryers for a true residential living experience.

The Gale Amenities

Taking tourism in Downtown Miami to a new level, The Gale is one of the only hotels on Mainland Miami that offer exclusive beach club access at the property. They have also built a sprawling 70,000 square foot amenity space over 3 levels that offers vibrant views of the Miami skyline including the new Signature Bridge, and the Biscayne Bay.

In the Gale Wellness center, guests will find a co-ed hammam, steam room and a sauna. There is also a fitness facility with indoor/outdoor yoga, plenty of state-of-the-art fitness equipment, expansive terraces and treatment rooms for spa services.

Corporate travelers will be delighted with the ultra-high-speed-internet access, multiple data lines and HDTV wiring in the units as well as a 20,000 square foot smart business center for meetings and conferences. This includes breakout rooms, a grand ballroom and several conference rooms. For larger events, there are also three total exhibition spaces of 40,000 square feet.

This expansive space makes Gale Miami the premiere location for corporate functions, large weddings and conferences. The space is complimented by personalized concierge catering and services so that each event runs seamlessly for organizers and attendees alike.

On the ground floor, guests enjoy over 9,000 square feet of restaurant space with an outdoor garden, an Italian restaurant and a sidewalk cafe. There are two additional dining options on the 9th floor sky lounge, an American steakhouse and lounge and an indoor/outdoor Mediterranean restaurant with sweeping views.

The Gale Miami Hotel

To memorialize the grand opening, Gale Miami is offering a special room rate of up to 25% off the first months. The special rate also gives guests up to $200 in waived fees in the form of destination fees and complimentary perks like early check-in, late check-out options and welcome gifts. Standard room rates start at $299/night.

If you would like to partake in the special rate, you can use the code ‘GRANDPRO‘ when booking on the hotel’s website or any booking aggregate (Expedia,, AirBnB, Vrbo, etc).

While the initial pre-construction opportunities sold very quickly, each project presents resale opportunities when the building opens.
