History

The original Roney Palace was built by Newton T. Roney and opened in January of 1926 (designed by the same architect as the Waldorf in New York City, Florida’s Breakers in Palm Beach and the Biltmore in Coral Gables). A classic, rich in history and fame guests included The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Orson Welles, Rita Hayworth, Bernard Gimbel and Vincent Astor. Desi Arnaz often performed and radio commentator Walter Winchell did many of his famous worldwide broadcasts from the Roney’s world-renowned Bamboo Room and Restaurant. Roney Plaza was the first hotel on Miami Beach to offer cabanas, tennis and a nine-hole golf course.

In 1968, the Franklin Brother Construction Group purchased the Roney Plaza. They demolished, and then re-built a new Roney Plaza, which opened in 1971 and was home to the famed 30,000-sq. ft., Roney Pub. Today, the property has retained the historical name, Roney Palace. The building has also undergone a $25 million-plus renovation that includes a 10,000-sq. ft. fitness center and spa, a tropically landscaped fantasy pool, a grand circular port cochere entrance and 30,000-sq. ft. of banquet space. Additionally the site now includes the adjacent luxury Roney Palace Resort & Spa.
