The Raleigh Hotel in South Beach

The Raleigh Hotel in Miami is a great combination of nostalgia and current design trends. Upon arrival you'll notice the Art Deco design along world-famous South Beach. The Raleigh has been sitting along Collins Avenue for years, and continues to be one of the hottest spots on the beach. The hotel is commonly known as the hotel property for Miami Swim Week, bringing celebrities, models and iconic designers to the hotel grounds. Upon check-in you'll be greeted with a key - yes, a real key, just like back in the day. The lobby chic 50's decor gives great character. Stop in the cafe for great coffee, pastries or smoothies. There's also an intimate cocktail bar and lounge that Hemingway would have loved. Outside there's a huge patio and a massive swimming pool, and private hotel beach club.

The rooms are small, but it's pretty typical with the historic Art Deco hotels in South Beach. The views are amazing and the hotel is a quick walk to Lincoln Road and popular nightlife.
