Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach

sights / Architecture

Lonely Planet review

The Eden Roc Resort was the second groundbreaking resort from Morris Lapidus, and it’s a fine example of the architecture known as MiMo (Miami Modern). It was the hangout for the 1960s Rat Pack – Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and crew. Extensive renovation has eclipsed some of Lapidus’ style; the Ocean Tower, for example, is a completely new addition. But with that said, the building is still an iconic piece of Miami Beach architecture, and an exemplar of the brash beauty of Millionaire’s Row.
