Best described as a cross between a boutique hotel and a hostel with shared, high-end commodities including a chef’s kitchen, pool, yoga and art rooms, library, a large serene courtyard lawn and plenty of work spaces, Roam Miami offers accommodation for guests and residents from a week to a lifetime.
The property preserves the historical features from the 1920’s former Miami Inn on the River in downtown. Private rooms and over-sized bathrooms feature period piece furnishings. The comfortable quarters are stocked with high-end linens and new Tuft and Needle mattresses.
At the end of a work day the digital nomads – “Roamies” often gather in the kitchen to share a drink, a communal meal or an excursion in the city.
Reasonable prices are enhanced via a Flex pre-payment plan, guaranteeing the lowest rate at all Roam properties, currently, Miami, San Francisco, London, Tokyo and Bali with more to come. Like standard hotels, prices are for the private quarters so couples are at a distinct advantage here.
Roam offers good suggestions for finding digital-nomad-type-work and suggestions for unloading your current or regular digs. For those who develop a taste for the communal lifestyle with plenty of options for privacy, this setup could become a viable full-time work/housing/travel option.
Generally, the median age is 38 and while many are truly digital nomads, artists and writers of all ages are welcome. With new locations planned beyond Miami, Bali, London and Tokyo, the optional initial $3500.00 just might work to your advantage in terms of price and flexibility when exploring all the Roam locations.
