The Eden Roc Miami Beach is a resort hotel at 4525 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, Florida. The building contains the Nobu Hotel Miami Beach. It was designed by Morris Lapidus in the Miami Modern style, and was completed in 1955-56. Renovated in 2008, the hotel has 621 guest rooms, including 96 suites. It was built on the site of the Warner Estate following litigation over development rights to the site and to the neighboring Firestone Estate, which became the Fontainebleau Hotel.

The musical group Steely Dan mentions "a tower room at Eden Roc" as a symbol of luxury in its song "Brooklyn (Owes the Charmer Under Me)," on the album Can't Buy a Thrill (1972).

Eden Roc was also featured in back to back episodes of I Love Lucy, entitled "Deep Sea Fishing" and "Desert Island" in 1956.
