In 1941, L. Murray Dixon, one of the principal architects of the Tropical Art Deco style, built the Gale South Beach and Regent Hotel for the same owner. Both hotels recall the Streamline Moderne style, complementing each other in scale, massing, and key architectural elements.
One of the hallmarks of our project was the faithful and painstaking restoration of the hotel’s exterior to meticulously recreate the exact original period design. With completely refurbished and renovated facades, the design brings you back to the vintage bliss of the era—from the exquisite details in the historic terrazzo flooring, to the replicas of the entry lights, porthole windows, flag pole signs, and the horizontal, smooth stucco accents.
Eighty seven guestrooms were designed to emulate the understated Italian chic and that 1940’s glamour with period-inspired leather chairs, russet wood, chrome accents and fixtures, and marble bath tub appointments against a backdrop of modern conveniences. Certified green guest rooms include high-definition LED TVs, iPad docking stations, and other state-of-the-art technology.
