Welcome to National Hotel
Designed by Roy F. France, the National Hotel was one of the grandest luxury hotels on Miami Beach when it first opened in 1940. Today it stands as one of Miami Beach's classic Art Deco Landmarks with the amenities and services of a modern luxury hotel. In recognition of its efforts, the National Hotel was honored with the Miami Design Preservation League's prestigious Hall of Fame Award, as well as the Dade Heritage Trust's Award for Excellence in Art Deco Preservation, and the City of Miami Beach's Beautification Award. Walking into The National Hotel, the overall effect brings to mind Bogart and Bacall and the glamour and romance of a bygone era. From its classic facade to its gleaming terrazzo lobby to its elegant bar and lounge, the National Hotel envelopes its guests in 1940s charm. The hotel is ideally located directly on the beach and within a short walking distance to Ocean Drive, the Miami Beach Convention Center, Lincoln Road's many shops, galleries, theaters and cafés, and Washington Avenue's famous nightclubs. The National is a member of Summit Hotels & Resorts, a collection of the finest independent hotels and resorts around the world. Lying amidst tropical gardens by the one-of-a-kind 205-foot "infinity" pool, you would not believe that the lively day and nightlife of Miami's trendy South Beach is just beyond the next palm tree. The National Hotel's decor and poolside oasis also seduced In Style magazine, which selected the National as one of the "Ten Most Romantic" hotels in America. And, it has caught the eye of the entertainment industry. Harrison Ford, Kristen Scott Thomas, Ricky Martin and Whitney Houston are among the entertainers who have been captured on film at the National.
