Delano Hotel, Miami

Delano Hotel, Miami

This photo shows the Ritz Plaza Hotel (L Murray Dixon, 1940), on the left, and the Delano Hotel (Robert Swartburg, 1947) at Miami South Beach.

I find the fa├žade of the Delano interesting with the angles of the walls providing corner windows to maximise the views from all rooms. From a purely decorative perspective through, the tower with its soaring wings are the stand-out feature of the hotel.
