Dixon built the Raleigh, the Tides, the Tiffany, the McAlpin, and the Marlin, as well as several Art Deco treasures lost in the era before Miami Beach recognized the significance of historic preservation -- the Senator Hotel, the original Roney Plaza, and the Atlantis Hotel, artistic buildings demolished to make way for parking garages and generic commercial properties. In 1937, Dixon built the Hotel Victor, which today stands as the nearest neighbor of the Casa Casuarina, the Versace mansion. This once-luxurious hotel was run down and ragged, pimped out as eye candy for Miami Vice episodes and lamented by Art Deco admirers. By 1984, the windows were boarded up and the Victor was abandoned. Now the Hyatt Hotel Chain has restored Lawrence Dixon's architectural treasure to its original luster, adding the modern amenities necessary for this 91-room hotel to compete with its flashier rivals along the strip. Art Deco fans rejoice, the Hotel Victor is back, and as beautiful as ever.
