Delano Hotel

Miami, Florida

The hotel

The ultimate urban resort hotel, the world-class Delano is the very height of luxury. Stunning to look at, it also boasts beautiful Philippe Starck interiors which will awe and delight you in equal measures. When it opened in 1995 the hotel must have set a world record for the number of press inches devoted to a new hotel. Journalists, not normally easily impressed, waxed lyrical about the white rooms, the white marble, the white-clad staff and the all-white spa. Starck's design for the Delano's public spaces has achieved the status that all architects and designers long for: recognition as a 'classic', with its soaring ceiling height and forest of imposing column offering great visual drama. Ten years on, this place has still got what it takes - Messieurs Starck and Schrager: take a bow. There's a choice of dining options here and Rose Bar is a very glamorous meeting place with cocktails served under Venetian chandeliers. For night-time entertainment, look no further than FDR at Delano and if spa treatments are high on your list of priorities, head up to the rooftop Agua Spa, a peaceful sanctuary offering a wide range of treatments and panoramic city views.

The entire staff is professional and courteous and go out of there way to make our stays as relaxing and fun as possible. Soledad and her team manage the pool and surrounding area impeccably. For us, it's easy, if we are looking for a weekend or a few days away, whether it be alone, with our kids, or friends, we visit the Miami Delano. Read less

Every time I’m here, I find myself using Shazam to find out the deep house music the Dj is playing. Always have an incredible time by the pool. Food is always outstanding. Yes it is pricy. But you pay for what you get. People watching is at its best. Did cocktails and lunch here recently after a stay. Love the beats and vibe.

Ok so I’ve visited Delano many years ago. On return I was hoping that it would still be the same luxurious place that i onced visited. NOT!!!!!! Omg call me boujee but NEVER AGAIN!

Ok so I’ve visited Delano many years ago. On return I was hoping that it would still be the same luxurious place that i onced visited. NOT!!!!!! Omg call me boujee but NEVER AGAIN! This hotel couldn’t possibly be putting money into this place. It’s an “all white” hotel for the most part so you would hope they would update properly and frequently. This place pis so outdated. The first room they tried to give us we immediately had to get it change due to huge stains on bed spread, dirty chairs in room, floors dirty(painted white)... and just the overall feel of motel! The second room not much better but since the Fontainebleau was booked and we had no other choice for our quick weekend away we just settled. Don’t get me wrong the service is ok, people are nice and they did try to be amendable but I am not impressed with this hotel and wished we’d stay somewhere else. When i go away i like to spend money on quality and this is no longer one of the quality hotels in Miami. And i wish people would stop saying that it’s nice. They need improvements inside and outside. Nothing is white anymore, smells of mold and mildew in lobby and elevators. Even the dang on beach umbrellas and chairs are raggedy as hell!! Serious improvements needed. So reviewers please be honest so they can do some work on this hotel. My next stay in Miami will definitely not be here. This should be a 3, maybe 3-1/2 star now. Forget the name it’s all about quality, being clean and service. So much more i could write but i think I’ve made it clear that you should stay else where until they do some work on this place.
