Delano South Beach

South Beach, Miami

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 live in Miami Beach and visited the Delano with a friend who was staying at the hotel from NYC. Many restaurants and hotels in this city lack in professional hospitality. That was not my experience at The Delano when we spent the day at the beach and the pool. First, I have to commend Soledad (Soleil) who is the head of the Delano pool. Not only does this young woman keep everything running like a well-oiled machine, but she also makes each customer feel so welcome, and that she is genuinely happy you are there. She never stops running around, fixing chairs so they are perfectly aligned, keeping a watchful eye out for guests who need something, and still manages to carry on a friendly conversation. What a star! After the pool, we made our way down to the beach where Luis patiently waited while we decided where we wanted to sit, whether we wanted an umbrella or not, etc. Luis had the patience of a saint and adjusted the umbrella several times for us to make sure it was right. He too was so friendly and polite. Our server was Freddy, who has been with The Delano for 8 yrs which is a lifetime in the transient world of Miami hospitality. Freddy is the hardest working man on the beach! He runs back and forth from the beach to the bar retrieving food. He constantly has a smile on his face, checks back with you frequently to see if you need anything and could not be more hospitable or friendly. The Delano many no longer be the newest hotel on the beach, but if you want one of the most beautiful expanses of sand with a truly professional and warm staff this is still the place to be Read less

Great hotel, location and service but don’t expect to sleep. Music at hotel and surrounding hotels goes until 2am and is so loud that ear plugs don’t even work. The hotel should advise guests in advance so they can decide. This was ridiculous.
