Art Deco is a term that is practically synonymous with South Beach.

The style started in 1920s Paris, and was typified by its use of man-made materials (i.e. glass or steel), repetition and symmetry, and ornate motifs – think sunbursts or chevron patterns.

While Art Deco style can be found in almost every corner of the globe, South Beach is its unofficial hot bed. Check out our favorite Art Deco spots now!

Delano Hotel

South Beach, Miami, Florida

Built in 1947, the Delano needs no introduction: It’s truly a fixture in South Beach when it comes to Art Deco architecture, with the added bonus of Phillippe Starck’s design throughout the property.

Guests can expect to pay steep prices for small rooms, but the history, ambiance, design, and party-hearty (if slightly douchey) nightlife solidify it as an icon.

Loews Miami Beach Hotel

South Beach, Miami, Florida

In 1997, the abandoned St. Moritz was purchased and refurbished as the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. With another round of interior updates taking place in 2009, the hotel has a fresh face both inside and out.

Rooms are also on the larger side for SoBe, which is a refreshing break from some the of cramped quarters provided by historic buildings. The hotel is also more family friendly than its neighbors: Kids stay free and there’s a massive toy library available to guests.

Clevelander Hotel

South Beach, Miami, Florida

The Clevelander’s status as a party hotel tends to precede it. It must have something to do with the complimentary rum runner guests receive upon check-in, or the massive patio bar that dominates the corner of 10th and Ocean with its bumping tunes and rowdy revelers.

Regardless, the property itself (which underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2009) embraces the Art Deco aesthetic, from the masonry in the lobby to the playful design of the patio bar. The rooms are on the small side, though, so swinging by for a frozen drink may be the best way to take in the architecture.
