An elegant chandelier and a beautiful grand piano adorn the hotel. Unlike the other Art Deco hotels that have started shifting towards modern architecture, the Cadet has stuck to its roots.
The Savoy Hotel
With a place in the National Register of Historic Places, the Savoy hotel remains one of Miami’s most popular hotels. The lagoon pools and greenery stand starkly against the picturesque white background of the hotel. There are very few rooms at the Savoy which ensures the hotel remains quiet and peaceful for patrons to enjoy.
The Beacon Hotel
Situated on the Ocean Drive, the Beacon is the most photographed iconic hotel of Miami. The neon lights against the pure white façade of the hotel is a picturesque sight. While embracing modern hotel renovations, the Beacon has remained small-scale enough to maintain their quaint feel.
The Leslie Hotel
From your Miami helicopter charter, you are sure to notice the starkly yellow hotel. At the center of the Art Deco district, the cute yellow hotel sits picture perfect. The small 35 roomed hotel has a café that you can visit if you do not get to book a room at the hotel.
The Ocean Surf Blue
Just like the Leslie, the Ocean Surf Blue is a magnificently colorful hotel. Blue, yellow and pink pastel building has adorable porthole windows. While the appliances in the room might seem a little dated, the interior has changed very little. The location and the well-preserved architecture make the hotel a must visit destination.
Even if you do not spend your vacation at any of these hotels, visiting their cafes and restaurants can help you get a taste of the Art Deco culture.
