Fontainebleau Miami Beach is three miles from the center of bustling South Beach and just steps from the Atlantic Ocean. Nestled between miles of hotels on Collins Avenue, Fontainebleau is an oceanfront Miami Beach standout. The historic hotel was designed by Morris Lapidus in 1954 and made a splash with Rat Pack icons and international travelers when it debuted. And just because this 1,504-room hotel has a history, doesn’t mean it’s not modern — the Fountainebleau was extensively refurbished in 2008. If you’re flying into South Florida, getting to the hotel from the nearby Miami International Airport is a simple 12-mile drive. The Fort Lauderdale International Airport is a 28-mile trip.
