Deauville Hotel Memorabilia

The Deauville Hotel, 6701 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach was designed by Melvin Grossman in 1957. This MIMO style hotel was named “Hotel of The Year” as it attracted many celebrities over the years such as Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones, Sammy Davis Jr., Joan Rivers and Jerry Lewis. What really put the Deauville on the map was that the world famous Beatles performed there. Their US debut was made in New York on the Ed Sullivan Show on February 9th, 1964. Their second US show was performed and recorded a week later at the Deauville Hotel on February 16th, 1964. Shown are 1960s archival memorabilia; vintage brochure, hotel ashtray, Cabana Club Maraca Shaker, and photo of the Beatles arriving at the Deauville. Sadly, today this historic hotel sits abandoned in a severe state of disrepair.
