White on white sets the tone in this ethereal property.
Named after President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, this 1947 landmark is one of the hottest places to stay. Themed on the romantic Greek islands, the oceanfront complex was transformed into a magical fantasy retreat with a 250-foot-long lobby corridor and floor-to-ceiling windows with flowing sheer drapes. At the forefront of South Beach's Deco hotel revival, the Delano continues to be one of the premier South Beach destinations for celebrities and those who want to mingle with them. The 238 elegant lofts, one-bedroom suites and pool bungalows are all furnished and decorated in virginal white. Guests will feel like royalty as they take advantage of in-room massages, personal trainers and maids who discreetly unpack their bags. After a relaxing European aromatherapy bath in the oversized marble tub, it's time for a meal to remember at the cosmopolitan Umi Sushi & Sake Bar. The lounge, the Rose Bar, is a favorite hangout among locals and guests. The penthouse spa, Agua, is located on the hotel's rooftop and offers top-notch treatments.
