This is not the hotel for the tight wallet. It is pricey and high class. To us, it was worth every penny. We were in love. The staff was perfection. The drinks delicious and the Bianca is incredible. If your in the mood to splurge. This is where it's at.

We had an amazing meal at Bianca. The food was only outpaced by the service, lead by expert head waiter, Paolo. He was an fantastic guide for our meal, and he even wrote down restaurants to check out the next time we visited his home region of Tuscany. We'll definitely be back. If you're visiting Miami, make sure you stop... More

Was only in the hotel for a day but the staff couldn't do enough for us, especially the concierge and the bellman, Julian, who's a star. The hotel is very contemporary and rather cold in the long walk from front door to outdoor restaurant/pool, but beautiful. The pool is fab but if a day guest one has to sit at... More

Clearly living on it's reputation, Delano used to be a hype hotel offering a decent service over the years, but forget about that, it's the past. I've been a guest since 1996 and this is my last stay in this place forever ! I was there from nov 30th until dec 8th 2014. Close to 1.000$ for a room, staying... More

Extended weekend at the hotel with a few friends. Rooms all white and very nice. Had a partial ocean view room as upgrade for no extra charge. What seperates this hotel from most of the others is the level of service provided by the people who work there. From the lovely women that maintain the rooms to the pool and... More

My wife and I were invited to attend the wonderful Miami Art Basel exhibition and were booked at The Delano Hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted in a very friendly and highly efficient way. Miami was buzzing with the art week and the hotel was no exception. Nevertheless, service was excellent, front desk and concierge staff was always very efficient... More

Twenty years ago this hotel was the Inn place to be in South Beach. Not so much anymore. I stayed here with my wife from the 29th November to the 3rd of December, we paid $1200 a night for a room the size of a postage stamp. Unfortunately we were there for the pre art basel Miami, however Art Basel... More

Dear Albalboy, It is always disheartening when our guests leave dissatisfied and I apologize that your experience with us did not go over well. I understand you felt the room was small however we clearly detail the sizes of all our available guest rooms on our website, but I do apologize about the inconsistencies you had with your initial room....

Such a beautiful, swanky, sophisticated hotel. Thank you for relieving me of my back pain from staying at the Albion. Gorgeous all white rooms, comfy beds, impeccable service and location location location......WOW! Everybody talks about the pool and once you go you'll see why. Eye candy galore oh and the pool itself is nice. This is more of an adult... More
