Delano Hotel Review

The hotel that single-handedly made South Beach cool again in the nineties is still making major waves across the beach as this Philippe Starck powerhouse continues to define the paradigm of South Beach decor and glamour. The style of this now legendary hotel is inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland; and as you make your way from the sparse, busy, spacious lobby past cascading white curtains and through rooms dotted with strange, whimsical furniture pieces, you will feel like you are indeed falling down a rabbit hole. Brush by celebrities and expatriates as you make your way to the vast oceanfront gardens and enormous pool outside, where the rich and famous lounge in white cabanas. Like most hotels on South Beach's hottest strip, the Delano boasts glamour and wealth; but there's defintely something extra special about staying at the hotel that instigated Miami Beach 2.0. Make sure to visit the signature restaurant, Bianca, and über-exclusive subterranean lounge, FDR, both created by Las Vegas's trendy Light Group.

2010 Fodor's 100 Hotel Award Winner

This South Beach hotel attracts the beautiful people, who stay at the famed bungalows, sip pricey cocktails, nibble on sushi, and lounge next to the palm-tree–lined pool with its underwater soundtrack and café table in the shallow end. Midcentury-modern furniture is featured throughout, and massive, sheer-white floor-to-ceiling drapes blow in the lobby's seaside breeze.
