The Raleigh Miami Beach
The Raleigh Miami Beach is an impeccable beachfront haven, offering views of both the colorful cityscape and clear blue ocean, while providing South Beach visitors luxurious, serene, and convenient accommodations. Ideally situated on the corner of 18th Street and Collins Avenue, The Raleigh is easily accessible to Miami’s eclectic nightlife, art galleries, boutiques, and culinary delights.
Designed by one of the principal architects of Deco South Beach, L. Murray Dixon, The Raleigh opened in 1940 during the “Boom over Miami;” a period where 41 hotels comprising 2,789 guestrooms were built in Miami. Celebrated for its iconic and uniquely shaped pool, Life magazine called it “the most beautiful pool in America” in 1947. The pool’s curvy, three-foot-deep moat outline was made famous by swimmer and actress Esther Williams, serving as a backdrop for her movies, including Million Dollar Mermaid (1952). Quite possibly the most photographed pool in the world, this dazzling venue is perfect for hosting parties and celebrations, including the Mercedes Benz Swim Week.
Recognized by Condé Nast Traveler as the “grand dame” of South Beach Art Deco, the 105 guestroom Raleigh honors its glamorous and chic history while providing the modern amenities expected for a splendid stay. Enjoy locally sourced fare at The Restaurant at The Raleigh and handcrafted cocktails at the Martini Bar. Lounge by the legendary pool under the lush foliage, unwind in a peaceful oasis cabana, or explore the white sand beach. The Raleigh offers world-class luxury hotel service at a prime oceanfront location on Collins Avenue, just steps from South Beach’s best shops and nightclubs.
The Raleigh Miami Beach’s iconic pool, one of the most photographed in the world, served as the backdrop of several films in the 1950’s starring Esther Williams.
