As one of the hottest recent hotel openings in Miami, the Soho Beach House Miami has been turning heads since arriving on South Beach’s shores in 2010.

Glamourous Adults Playground
The Delano hotel is the ultra-hip, sophisticated adult fantasyland which has been attracting the international see-and-be-seen crowd for over a decade. The Delano hotel represents one of the first acts of the inimitable Schraeger/ Starck partnership, where the duo went all-out in creating a wild and glamourous playground.

The hotel's masterpiece, however, is its state of the art health and spa facilities with decadent steam baths, saunas, mud wraps and a chlorine-free pool with soothing underwater sounds.
