In Celebration of Founder and Developer Tony Goldman’s Life
Goldman Properties, the real estate company, known for creating magic in places often overlooked, is proud to announce that its signature Art Deco property, The Hotel of South Beach, has been renamed The Tony Hotel South Beach. The renaming honors Tony Goldman, founder of Goldman Properties, on the tenth anniversary of the visionary’s passing.
Tony Goldman, who in 2021 was inducted unanimously into the Miami Beach Hall of Fame, pioneered the transformation of iconic neighborhoods such as South Beach, Wynwood, SoHo, and Center City in Philadelphia. At heart, Goldman was a preservationist and an artist who sought to breathe life into decaying neighborhoods by accentuating their DNA, restoring historic architecture, and introducing colorful imagery.
Originally built in 1939 by master architect L. Murray Dixon and beautifully reimagined in 1998 by American fashion designer Todd Oldham, The Tony Hotel South Beach embodies the classic South Beach retreat in an intimate setting. From its ocean-view rooftop pool to its meticulously preserved 1930s Art Deco architecture and landmarked “Tiffany” spire sign that towers majestically over Collins Avenue. The boutique hotel spans two buildings along Eighth Street, fronting both Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive, for a total of 74 rooms and suites adorned in rich colors, shapes, and textures that highlight and pay homage to its historic neighborhood.
“Tony Goldman was an entrepreneur, historic preservationist, romantic and sensitive developer, restaurateur, hotelier, and patron of the arts. Renaming the hotel that Tony restored in his honor is a fitting tribute to his legacy,” said Scott Srebnick, his son-in-law and CEO of Goldman Properties. “He imagined South Beach to be the American Riviera, with sidewalk cafés, hotels, music, and languages spoken by people from all corners of the world.
News Café set to re-open this Spring
The renaming will be joined by a legendary neighborhood restaurant re-opening. The famed News Café is set to re-open later this Spring in its familiar location on the ground floor of The Tony’s Ocean Drive building. The Tony Hotel South Beach is located at 801 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information on the boutique hotel and reservations, please visit www.thetonyhotel.com
