Rooms & Rates

Built in the 1940s, The Raleigh hotel is a South Beach landmark set on bustling Collins Avenue with old-fashioned glamor and a real party atmosphere. While it has been updated over the years, 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 center, and comes with inflatable rubber rings for leisurely floating in the pool. 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 also 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's cozy rooms come with vintage fixtures, including real room keys, retro armchairs and chrome bedside tables. The minibars are stocked with all sorts of extras, from disposable cameras to common over-the-counter medicine. It's worth upgrading to an oceanview 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.

Get to know the coastal metropolis from land, air and sea with top attractions, luxe spa days and evening dinners out on the town.

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 neighboring 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 Traveler
