At SLS South Beach Hotel in Miami, a 9 foot 6 inch tall, 750 pound giant duck awaits hotel guests as they go for a swim at the pool. The former Ritz Plaza hotel was transformed into a Philippe Starck, scene-stealing hotspot. Philippe Starck himself is responsible for the hotel design (which includes the duck statue). While South Beach will be just the second SLS hotel after Beverly Hills, one in New York is slated to open in 2013, and a Las Vegas property is set to follow in 2014. I sure hope they include giant rubber ducks in their future hotels!
Rubber duckie you’re the one! You make……pool time…lots of fun. Rubber duckie, I’m awfully fond of you!
