Fontaineblue - Book


The Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach, designed by architect Morris Lapidus and opened in 1954, stands as a timeless architectural marvel that epitomizes postwar America's swagger and style. With its majestic fourteen-story, 550-room structure, panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, and a star-studded guest list including icons like Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe, the Fontainebleau became an instant sensation and an enduring symbol of luxury. Groucho Marx famously dubbed it the Eighth Wonder of the World. Now, expanding its legacy, the Fontainebleau is venturing west with a sister property in Las Vegas, promising to redefine luxury once again. This narrative is vividly captured in Forever Fontainebleau, authored by Stephen Wallis and complemented by stunning photography from Peter Arnell, showcasing the hotel's illustrious past and its promising future.
