Unique Among Hotels in South Beach Florida
As the most photographed hotel in all of South Beach, the façade of the Colony Hotel is synonymous with the Art Deco roots and influences of Ocean Drive architecture of the 1930’s. The Colony was one of the first hotels to be constructed by Henry Hohauser, the Art Deco district’s most famous and influential architect, back in 1935. The Hotel has been renovated and remodeled extensively since that time, but the integrity of the Colony’s true Deco roots have never been compromised and has been included in the National Register of Historic Places. The original pipe railings, the concrete cantilevered overhangs, and the now world renowned blue neon sign of the Colony Hotel are a present day reminder of the original streetscape which made up the Art Deco district of the 1930’s.
