Miami Beach’s historic hotel The Raleigh will become a Rosewood hotel in 2025.
Rosewood Hotels and Resorts has partnered with real estate firm SHVO to restore the 60-key property in the city’s Art Deco district, which has been closed since 2017.
Originally constructed in the 1940s by Miami architect Lawrence Murray Dixon, the restoration will feature design by architect Peter Marino in collaboration with Miami-based Kobi Karp Architecture.
The Rosewood-operated hotel will offer 60 rooms and suites along with a private member’s club featuring beachfront dining, and the reimagined Martini Bar and Tiger Room. The hotel’s recognisable curved swimming pool will also be restored.
The neighbouring Richmond and South Seas hotels will also be integrated into The Raleigh, offering additional space for the Rosewood-operated hotel.
Adjacent to the hotel will be a newly constructed 17-story oceanfront tower housing Rosewood Residences Miami Beach. The 44 residences will offer unobstructed ocean views, with two lobbies featuring art and furnishings curated by Peter Marino.
Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group, commented:
“At Rosewood, we are committed to preserving historical gems that truly embody their destinations, while also breathing new life into the properties.
“Our commitment to the local community is to ensure that The Raleigh honors its legacy for locals and visitors to once again relish this long-cherished property.”
Michael Shvo, Chairman and CEO of SHVO, added:
“As the steward of Miami’s most iconic property, The Raleigh, I am thrilled to partner with preeminent luxury hotel brand, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, and world-renowned architect Peter Marino to reimagine and secure the rich legacy of The Raleigh, creating a new, unparalleled hospitality experience in Miami Beach.
“We are excited to introduce the hotel as well as the residences at The Raleigh, which offer the unique opportunity, for the first time ever, to live on property.”
