When Ian Schrager opened the Delano, a revamped 1940s Art Deco building, in 1995, it was considered a brave, even misguided move, as South Beach was then seedy indeed. But the hotel changed local narratives of design and geography. Today, it's a throwback to a time when a vacation didn't involve self-improvement or saving the planet. The pool is too shallow to swim in; it's called a water salon and has furniture to sit and, of course, pose on. The ur-hip clientele can also lounge on double daybeds on the beach or in poolside cabanas equipped with flat-screen TVs. After Schrager left, in 2006, the hotel underwent a refreshment to keep pace with Miami's exploding scene. Philippe Starck's witty interiors remain grand and groovy, and the collection of furniture and objects includes works by Gaudí, Man Ray, Dalí, and Charles and Ray Eames. And happily, the white-on-white conceit of the 245 rooms survived the renovations.
