The National Hotel

The National Hotel in Miami BeachThe National Hotel in Miami Beach

Overview

Enter a classic era of grace, elegance and style at National Hotel Miami Beach, an authentically restored Art Deco landmark that epitomizes the mood and décor of the 1940’s, redefined with a modern panache.

Designed by Roy France, one of the period’s foremost architects, National Hotel was one of the grandest luxury hotels on Miami Beach when it opened in 1940. In 1997, new owners and management restored and reopened the hotel, which today stands as an Art Deco treasure in the heart of South Beach’s Art Deco Historical District.

Many original furnishings can be seen throughout the hotel, such as re-upholstered “barrel” chairs in the lounge and lobby, polished chrome light fixtures illuminating public areas and the terrazzo flooring in the Martini Room cigar bar. Particularly notable are the massive oak bar that serves as the centerpiece of the hotel’s Blues Bar and the original carpeting and chandelier which were lovingly restored and modernized, located in the National’s ballroom, the Oval Room.

Where original fixtures or design could not be used, the owners worked within the theme. An intricate mosaic was commissioned and comprised of thousands of tiny tiles patterned after a 1921 painting entitled, “Girl with Gloves” by Tamara de Lempicka, a celebrated Art Deco artist and the venerated patroness of the hotel, for the hotel’s French fusion restaurant, Tamara’s atrium ceiling. Authentic Art Deco antiques were hand-picked to enhance existing adornments along with specially designed and installed railings along the mezzanine, to mirror in the precise manner of those found in the hotel’s original architecture plans. Also maintaining the original Art Deco style of the guest rooms, the hotel received custom-made furniture, or its original dark wood furnishings in the Historic Tower were refinished. Paying homage to Art Deco streamlined shapes and lines the hotel’s 205-foot-long palm-lined infinity pool was created, renowned for being the longest pool on Miami Beach. A classic icon of style and impeccable service, National Hotel stands as a proud landmark in the heart of South Beach’s historic Art Deco District.
