The National Hotel

Exuding a cinematic elegance and beautiful period accents dating back to 1939, the National Hotel is tucked away in South Beach’s celebrated Art Deco neighborhood and offers a luxurious, sophisticated seaside retreat. Fringed by swaying palm trees, fragrant bougainvillea and shimmering golden sands, the authentically restored Art Deco landmark resort combines award-winning architectural authenticity with subtle elements of contemporary design to bring the discerning traveler a unique place to stay.

Designed by one of the period’s foremost architects, Roy France, the National Hotel boasts 116 exquisitely designed and decorated guest rooms and 36 stylish suites and cabanas, an iconic 200-foot infinity swimming pool, fine dining restaurants and casual bars, 24-hour fitness center, first-class meeting facilities, and a poolside spa.

The hotel features many original furnishings, including polished chrome light fixtures, re-upholstered “barrel” chairs in the lobby and lounge, and smooth terrazzo flooring in the Martini Room. The Blues Bar has an expansive original oak bar, and beautifully restored carpeting and chandeliers can be found in the National’s ballroom, the Oval Room.

The hotel is situated just four blocks away from the Ocean Drive boardwalk and is a short drive away from several of Miami’s best attractions and activities, including the Miami Beach Golf Club, the Miami Beach Convention Center, and Jungle Island. Photo: Photo: The National Hotel
