 The SLS Hotel South Beach debuted last week at the site of the former Ritz Plaza Hotel. The 140-room property, owned by SBE, joins the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills as the second of that brand in the company's portfolio. Guest rooms come equipped with iPads that allow guests to perform hotel functions, such as making dinner reservations or keeping up to date on special events at the property. The hotel offers several function spaces, including an indoor venue that accommodates up to 80 and an outdoor venue for up to 200.
