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.

We had a delightful experience. From the moment we arrived at the beach, Toni & Syrah took excellent care of us. They were very friendly and helpful. Service was quick and efficient. We were close to the water. Furthermore, Fred that was taking care of our Food and Beverages was the absolute best. Always there when we needed, always making sure we had enough water/ shade. If you want to relax on South Beach and getaway from the hectic Miami lifestyle, I highly suggest going there. Service was reached what you expect in a 5 star hotel and even beyond expectations.

I've been staying at this hotel probably since around 2011 and it still remains to be one of my absolute favorites. In my opinion it has one of the best pool areas in South Beach with great service along with fantastic food options both by the pool/beach and in the restaurant. They also have a sushi bar in the lobby which I love. Do yourself a favor and stay here it really is a fantastic experience all around. I also wanted to give a shout out to Kenny by the pool for helping my boyfriend and I out with chairs/towels daily and going above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and satisfied with everything. He was extremely nice and helpful. I of course will be returning to the Delano next time we're in Miami and it makes me so happy that the service/standards of the hotel have continued to be absolutely top notch. Read less
