History[edit]

Designed by architect Robert Swartburg, the Delano was built in 1947 by Rob and Rose Schwartz. The hotel was originally utilized for military housing. The then four-winged Art Deco tower of the Delano was the tallest building in Miami. The 1994 renovations were designed by Philippe Starck.[3] The hotel is named after US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
