Delano: a gem by Philippe Starck

Delano: a gem by Philippe Starck

White, white, and more white. The Delano is a design hotel whose success is undeniable.

What best characterises the Delano hotel is probably its colour: pure white. This was what French designer Philippe Starck, who renovated the hotel in 1995, wanted and it has contributed to the revival of Miami Beach. Opened in 1947 and named after the 32nd president of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, this hotel has newfound youthfulness. White fabrics flutter in the lobby, giving a refreshing impression. There are just a few chairs and armchairs, so as not to disturb the feeling of serenity. The 194 rooms, of course, are all white, occasionally enlivened by grey or pale green. On weekends, an excellent brunch with Champagne and lobster is served. You will enjoy the large swimming pool surrounded by palm trees and blue-and-white-striped deck chairs. On Sundays, it is open to anyone with a few dollars, so expect pretty girls and tanned and muscular young men parading noisily. If you like the quiet, then avoid the noise by going to the beach. Accessible at the end of the garden, it will welcome you.
