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.

I have been coming to the Delano for years. But, it has been a couple since we have been there. We always have a great time. Two and a half hours from NYC and you can really separate. It was great to see that Soledad was still managing the pool. We had a terrific experience. Service was great. Rented a cabana the second day. Food and drinks are… Read more

It was great to see that Soledad was still managing the pool. We had a terrific experience. Service was great. Rented a cabana the second day. Food and drinks are terrific. Everything worked out perfectly. A great weekend stay! Be back soon! Read less

This hotel is a bit dated. The rooms and corridors need to be updated. We stayed in a room this past weekend and the glass from the shower door broke off cutting my wife’s foot.

This hotel is a bit dated. The rooms and corridors need to be updated. We stayed in a room this past weekend and the glass from the shower door broke off cutting my wife’s foot. The staff were notified and failed to take action. My opinion is that the staff need to be trained up with better customer service. I understand that they have a captive clientele due to the abundance of tourism year round, but guests spend a lot of money at the property. Also, the Delano will face some fierce competition with the new Ritz Carlton and updated Raleigh properties opening up later this year. I was very disappointed with the bar tender staff within the hotel as they come across as very sour and unfriendly. Also, there is a security guard at the pool area that is extremely unpleasant- not sure if this is due to “roid-rage”, but staff should be trained to be more friendly to guests spending top dollar. For instance, we spent over 1K USD at the pool for a cabana. Bottom line is I would prob take my money elsewhere next time as there are plenty of other cool properties in Miami Beach with friendly staff. The pictures below show the glass from shower door and perhaps the only redeeming hotel amenity which is the pool. Read less

I’m a professional, who works CERY LONG hours and rarely get a vacation... we were able to take a brief few days to get down to Miami, had a tough time choosing from a select few hotels we’ve stayed at before and had prior great experiences, including the W Hotel, The One, and The Edition hotels in South Beach alongside the Delano. It’s tough, they’re all very good! We ended up settling on The Delano, and i’m SO HAPPY we did, the trip’s been AMAZING, and primarily because of the staff; it’s always the LITTLE things that make the difference when you’re choosing amongst the best hotels in Miami. We had an incredible guy who tends the pool and guest services named Jean Castilla who went above and beyond for us not just one day, but EVERY DAY. This is the kind of RARE employee that every hotel should be elevating to the top as quickly as possible.... very sharp, hard working, personable, and understands the importance of DETAILS. DELANO... if you’re listening.... PROMOTE. THAT. MAN. If you could have him just train everyone, you won’t ever have to worry whether guests will walk away repeat customers just by virtue of the service they received just at the pool :) Read less

Awesome service from hotel and beach staff especially Jack Perea. He assured we were taken care of around the beach area. Lovely room stay and presentation. Hope to come back soon and experience another great time.
