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 visited with the need of few days of relaxation to recharge but still wanted to be close enough to the action that it wouldn’t be an issue getting around.

I visited with the need of few days of relaxation to recharge but still wanted to be close enough to the action that it wouldn’t be an issue getting around. This was my first stay and won’t be my last! The hotel is stunning, calm and chic and my room was an absolute dream (very clean) and effortless to relax in. I spent most of my time at the beach club and was spoiled by the best and most friendly staff I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting...shoutout to Louby, Giuseppe and Fred for excellent service and hospitality! From the front desk to room service and housekeeping, everyone was friendly, efficient and professional. I most definitely have made Delano my new Miami go to! Read less

We looked forward to another visit to Miami Beach, and this formerly fabulous hotel. Indeed, from check-in to check-out, we enjoyed ourselves and our oceanfront room But the beautiful pool area has been ruined by UNBELIEVABLY LOUD & LOWBROW “music”. We won’t return.

This is the first time me and my partner has tried out Delano. Check in was smooth, however, we were placed on 4th facing a very noisy street. This is my only downfall, especially with the amount of money we have spent. Now for Julie at the pool, she’s turned our experience completely around . I personally work for Marriott and I would hire this… Read more
This is the first time me and my partner has tried out Delano. Check in was smooth, however, we were placed on 4th facing a very noisy street. This is my only downfall, especially with the amount of money we have spent. Now for Julie at the pool, she’s turned our experience completely around . I personally work for Marriott and I would hire this girl in a heartbeat! Management, she deserves a raise ! If you ever find yourself at the hotel and by the pool, look for Julie ! Read less
