HISTORY - SAVOY HOTEL MIAMI BEACH, FL
In the early Twentieth Century, Miami Beach was born out of coconut and avocado plantations in south Florida and quickly became known as an Atlantic-style playground and winter retreat for the wealthy of the Northeast. In the 1920’s wealthy industrialists from the Northeast and Midwest began flocking down to South Florida to build their own winter retreats in unique Art Deco style that features port hole windows, chrome accents and pastel coloring. Today the Art Deco District features over 800 structures built from 1920 to 1943.
Since welcoming its first guests in 1935, The Savoy has set a standard for Miami Beach hospitality. Today's Savoy brings together two historic structures, the Savoy Plaza and the Arlington – a former condominium building featuring studio condos that once housed Rolling Stone Ron Wood and other distinguished and famous guests. The Savoy has been listed on America's National Register of Historic Places since 1979.
