Fontainebleau: Staircase to Nowhere

When it opened in 1954, the Fontainebleau was the largest and most luxurious hotel in South Florida. Morris Lapidus, the hotel's architect, included signature features like a 17,000-square-foot lobby with a now legendary staircase to nowhere, six acres of formal gardens designed to replicate Versailles, and antique furnishings to authentically convey the hotel's French period theme. In 2008, the resort completed a $1 billion renovation and expansion. The resort's 1,504 guest rooms include 846 rooms and suites in the original buildings. The 37-story Tresor and 18-story Sorrento, two new luxury all-suite towers located at the south end of the property, have 658 junior, one- and two-bedroom suites.
