Charles Hotel, Miami Beach


From my vintage postcard archives comes this scene of senior citizens, living the high life in Miami Beach. Note the great neon sign on the top half and the wonderful mid-century furniture on the bottom half.

  3. I really love the designs of the lobby. I wish I have a lot of money so that I can spend my vacation there. Anyway, I saw a site about cheap hotel miami that you can visit here if you have time.

    2. I lived in the Charles hotel, too. In the mid 80s for about a year. It was located at 1475 Collins Ave. Was sorry to see it was demolished.

  7. I was just now looking through this website. I love it so much and miss it so much and it was my phone. Even though I am from Oklahoma. I will never forget it! I worked there

  8. A great big empty lot. This building fell into disrepair many years ago and was purchased by CVS which promptly demolished it (early 2000's). They did not have the proper demolition permit and are not supposed to be able to build on it (although they have submitted proposals to do just that).
