Located in the heart of South Beach, on the Southwest corner of 17th Street and Collins Avenue the Italian Riviera-influenced design pays homage to its vintage Miami roots and is walking distance to Miami Beach Convention Center, Ocean Drive, Lincoln Road, Fillmore, New World Symphony, night clubs, restaurants, shops, and galleries. Maintaining its original name and structure, Gale South Beach & Regent Hotel is now open following its $35 million restoration and renovation.
Originally erected in 1941, the Gale South Beach & Regent Hotel were two trendsetting properties located on an up-and-coming escape haven of Miami known as South Beach. Architect L. Murray Dixon had the unique vision to build two venues of Tropical Art Deco fashion; a style the pioneer is today credited with developing.
Both the Gale and the Regent of the ‘40s shared similarities in architecture and design, and it wasn’t until 1964 that the sister properties were permanently linked by bridge. Dixon’s innovations have since earned the retro estate recognition in the National Register of Historic Places.
Through the decades, luxury resorts and beach clubs began to overtake South Beach, and the once-bustling duo known as the Gale South Beach & Regent Hotel began to fade into the beach town’s backdrop, defeated from neglect – temporarily.
