Bond's Miami Beach Hotel (Fontainebleau Hotel)
Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Miami, Florida, United States of America
Featured in Goldfinger (1963)
The Fontainebleau Hotel is the location where Bond receives his massage from Dink, gets the heads-up about Auric Goldfinger from Felix Leiter, and the ill-fated Jill Masterson gets her gold paint job from Oddjob.
The Fontainebleau Hotel built in 1954 was designed by Morris Lapidus and was considered to be the most luxurious hotel at its opening. Built on the site of a mansion owned by millionaire Harvey Firestone, the Fontainebleau became the place to see and been seen. Situated in the heart of Millionaire's Row, the hotel is currently owned by Fontainebleau Resorts.
Only the second unit visited the hotel, as all the scenes with the lead actors were shot against a projection in Pinewood Studios, as were the interior shots. §
