Designed by architect Robert Swartburg, the Delano exhibits some of the traits of the Miami Beach Streamline Moderne style, but the building actually postdates the craze. In the mid-1990s, the hotel was given a makeover by developer Ian Schrager and designer Philippe Starck. The Delano is one of two Miami Beach hotels to make the list of 150 (the other is the Fontainebleau, #91).
