Hotel information details

One of the Clay Hotel’s most notorious claims to fame (and there are quite a few) is the presence here of the infamous gangster Al Capone in the early 1930s. It is said he ran his gambling ring from here. Al Capone was known to be a dangerous, violent gang lord, but he and his circle were so slick that he could never be charged with any of his crimes.

The most famous piece of filming to feature the Clay Hotel were episodes of the 1980s police show, Miami Vice. The Clay’s unique backdrop was used in both the pilot episode and the final episode of the first season, and, overnight from the first showing, the Clay Hotel became instantly recognized and hugely popular as a place to stay in Miami.

Information about the area

The Clay Hotel is only 2 blocks from the white sandy beaches in the heart of the Art Deco District.

Whatever the time of day, there's always something to do in South Beach, or in the Greater Miami area. Take a tour of the Historic Art Deco District, dance the night away at one of our many clubs, or stroll through Fairchild Tropical Gardens. Miami is a year-round resort town where the options for fun, adventure and relaxation are endless.

Lincoln Road is just a short walk from our hotel. It is a pedestrian street, closed to cars, where boutiques, restaurants, art galleries, theaters and stores abound-each one distinctive and intriguing.

For the sports minded, there is a large selection of things to do. Flamingo Park, which is two blocks from the hotel, maintains beautiful clay tennis courts at very reasonable rates, racquet ball courts, soccer fields and an Olympic size swimming pool.
