More Room Types

Built in the 1940s, The Raleigh hotel is a South Beach landmark set on bustling Collins Avenue with old-fashioned glamour and a real party atmosphere. Following a sympathetic revamp in 2002, this Art-Deco icon is one of the few in Miami to still embody "the grace and pure fantasy of old-line Miami", notes Travel + Leisure.

The stunning pool is easily the hotel's biggest draw. Made famous by those Esther Williams pictures (the 1950s swimming champion and Hollywood star), it is arguably one of the world's most beautiful. It has a shallow outer circle, an unusual waterfall in the centre, and comes with inflatable rubber rings for leisurely floating. Don't miss the summer parties with live music that go on until late.

There's also an impressive beach area, ringed with dense palms and strung with comfy hammocks, and a hip seafood restaurant. Guests get free access to the gym and steam room at the SLS Hotel nearby, or you can hire a bike from the front desk and cycle to Ocean Drive, 10 minutes away.

The hotel is a listed building and cosy rooms come with vintage fixtures, including real room keys, retro armchairs and chrome bedside tables. The mini bars are stocked with all sorts of extras, from disposable cameras to painkillers. It's worth upgrading to an ocean-view room to make the most of the location (only eight come with balconies), and rooms on the higher floors have the best pool views.

There's a $20 per room, per night resort fee, covering Wi-Fi, pool and beach loungers and towels.

From the press:
  • "[The hotel has] the world's most beautiful pool -- a retro setting that somehow makes everyone look more beautiful and glamorous in a bathing suit" -- Travel + Leisure
  • "The 1940s design opus keeps history in style, and despite renovations, it maintains a delicious old-school flair and has not succumbed to the hedonist vibe of some neighbouring hotels" -- Fodor's
  • "Other South Beach hotels have slicker service and surfaces, but the toniest design pedigree can’t confer what The Raleigh now has in spades: soul" -- Condé Nast Traveller
