The Raleigh Hotel
A South Beach icon since 1941, The Raleigh is known as the “grand dame” of art deco style. In 1947, Life Magazine named the hotel’s curvy pool “the most beautiful pool in America.” The famous oceanside pool was the backdrop for movie star-swimmer Esther Williams' flicks in the 1940s and ‘50s and later the scene for MTV’s The Grind dance show.
Delano South Beach
The Delano is one of Miami Beach’s hottest places to see and be scene. It was Miami Beach’s tallest building when it was built in 1947. Designer Philippe Starck led the renovations in 1994. Then in 2007, the American Institute of Architects ranked the hotel on its list of "America's Favorite Architecture.”
Located in the center of the Art Deco District on Ocean Drive, the Clevelander is famous for its outdoor, poolside bar scene. Built in 1938, the property recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation.
Park Central Hotel
Built in 1937, the Park Central Hotel was a Hollywood hangout for stars like Clark Gable, Carole Lombard and Rita Hayworth. Known as "The Blue Jewel" it was also one of the first art deco-style hotels to be renovated in the '80s.
Designed in 1936 by L. Murray Dixon, The Tides is a 12-story tower with porthole windows near the entrance.
One of the most sought after settings for Hollywood, The Carlyle has been featured in movies like Bad Boys II, The Birdcage and Scarface. It was built in 1939 and the façade remains virtually unchanged from the original.
