The property's chic vibe and superb Miami Beach location make it a popular place for nightlife enthusiasts
A stay here is expensive
There are few hotels in South Beach that are more renowned than this one. This Collins Avenue hotel started it all; it's the property that made Miami Beach, Florida, hotels places to be seen, not just places to stay. Luckily, travelers say that you will get a first-class lodging experience here as well. The stark white-on-white guest rooms might be hip (albeit slightly dated, according to some reviewers), but they're also comfortable thanks to amenities like 300-thread-count linens, Ciel Reserve bath products and showers with rainfall heads. And the pool might be swanky, but it's also still a good place for swimming. On the other hand, most of the people who like the Delano South Beach knew what they were in for before they arrived – plenty of party time, plenty of glamour and glitz and plenty of cash shelled out once the final room bill comes. Keep in mind that there are many hotels in Miami Beach that are more affordable and more relaxing. But if you are into "the scene," then you can't miss Delano South Beach stops like the Rose Bar. The Delano also houses three restaurants: Leynia serves Argentinian food, UMI Sushi and Sake Bar showcases innovative sushi dishes and the Delano Beach Club offers casual bites by the pool and beach.

Critic Reviews



The hotel that single-handedly made South Beach cool again in the 1990s is still making major waves across the beach as this Philippe Starck powerhouse continues to define the paradigm of South Beach decor and glamour. The style of this now legendary hotel is inspired by Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland'; and as you make your way from the sparse, busy, spacious lobby past cascading white curtains and through rooms dotted with strange, whimsical furniture pieces, you will feel like you are indeed falling down a rabbit hole.


The Delano's ... all-white rooms don't come cheap, but you're paying for surreal, Philippe Starck style and all-night parties at the 'water salon.' To some, its hip factor has been bested by 1 Hotel South Beach or Shore Club, but their style doesn't compare, and good times are still to be had.

Travel + Leisure


Philippe Starck's witty interiors remain grand and groovy, and the collection of furniture and objects includes works by Gaudí, Man Ray, Dalí, and Charles and Ray Eames. And happily, the white-on-white conceit of the ... rooms survived the renovations.



Developed by famed boutique hotel originator Ian Shrager, this iconic urban resort is the epitome of the fabled Miami lifestyle. The guest units are impressively decorated with white fabrics.



The dean of SoBe boutique hoteldom is still very much holding its own 2 decades after Ian Schrager and Philippe Starck remade Robert Swartburg's 1947 classic, launching an international trend of white-on-white decor, tall billowy curtains, poolside beds, and hipper/than-thou vibe (in fact, it jacked up rates quite a bit in 2014). Much of it is still in place, though the sterility of all the white in the rooms is now relieved by touches of color, especially green, and the attitude dialed back slightly.
