Florida Hotel that Hosted the Beatles Imploded

Via NBC South Florida:

The decaying hotel at Miami Beach's historic Deauville Beach Resort, which once played host to everyone from the Beatles to President John F. Kennedy, was imploded Sunday morning after it was declared an unsafe structure.

The implosion of the Deauville hotel tower at 6701 Collins Avenue occurred Sunday at 8 a.m.

...The building was originally constructed in 1957 and by the 1960s, the Deauville was the place to be. The "Ed Sullivan Show" telecast a Beatles appearance live from the hotel's ballroom in 1964, and President John F. Kennedy gave a speech to young Democrats there in 1961. Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Judy Garland and Tony Bennett also performed at the resort.
