Hotel Review: Delano Hotel Miami Beach

The Delano Hotel offers the luxury and amenities of the best resorts in the world. Enjoy a private beach, a landscaped orchard, swimming pool, a spa with everything needed to pamper yourself, and a variety of restaurants and bars. The Delano Hotel also has a well-equipped business center and meeting rooms as well as convention space. The design of the Delano makes it a perfect fit in the Art Deco District of South Miami Beach. A twelve-mile drive from Miami International Airport puts you right at the Delano Hotel’s front door. Its close proximity to Key Biscayne and the hotel’s location directly on the beach can make you believe you are luxuriating on your own personal island. This is not merely a hotel, but an incomparable urban resort.

Philippe Stark, the best known designer in what is known as “new design”, designed this beautiful contemporary resort hotel. The stunning white buildings and beautifully laid out gardens and pool orchard add to the feel that the Delano is part of the Atlantic Ocean. The white theme is carried inside to the all-white guestrooms. One of the most outstanding features of the hotel is its indoor/outdoor lobby.
