New Lifestyle App by SLS-South Beach Hotel
Imagine being able to order drinks, make a reservation for dinner, place a room service order or rent a car, all before arriving to your hotel using an app that can be downloaded before you check-in?
The SLS Hotel in South Beach, home to both The Bazaar by Jose Andres and Katsuya restaurants, has just unveiled an exclusive lifestyle app to enhance their globe-trotting clientele’s local and in-room experience with features that include: “Shake a Drink,” “Perfect Day in South Beach” and “Bring Me Bubbles.”

The core functionality of the app is balanced by a spirit of design, mixology and locally-inspired fun, enhancing the SLS Hotels point of differentiation in the market. Developed by leading hospitality software platform Runtriz, the app is downloadable free of charge on iPhones, Androids, and also runs on all SLS Hotel South Beach in-room iPads.
Features of the SLS Hotel South Beach app include:
- “Shake a Drink” – Tap the “Shake a Drink” button to stir up a killer cocktail in the comfort of your Philippe Starck-designed room. Guests can raid the mini bar and stir up their own cocktail from the comfort of their room, or head downstairs and let the mixologists shake things up!
- “Bring Me Bubbles” – Guests can rush order Champagne, ranging from a $50 Avinyo Cava to a $148 Lanson Ivory Label Demi-Sec Champagne, to be delivered to their rooms in less than 20 minutes.
- “Perfect Day in South Beach” – Guests at SLS Hotel South Beach can take advantage of the expert concierge team, who have created “Perfect Day in South Beach” sample itineraries from Lenny Kravitz and more, which provide detailed information on local Miami attractions, South Beach weather, as well as print traveler’s boarding passes.
