Guest rooms are elegantly appointed with solid wood furnishing, embellished with carved molding. The rooms offer marble and granite finishes in the entrance and bath area. Custom faux finishing envelopes you in a warm and enchanting color scheme, accented by lively and impressionist artwork. In our deluxe rooms our over sized Jacuzzis are located on a marble platform adjacent to the sleeping area.

The design of the hotel is inspired by the architecture of Addison Mizner, a celebrated early 20th century architect who led the renaissance of Florida resort design. The property’s design reflects a variety of motifs found in the indigenous Florida buildings of this era. It includes Spanish, Moorish, Romanesque and Gothic forms. The atmosphere and elegance found in the coastal communities of southeast Florida are found in the hotel’s architecture, ranging from tile roofs to fountains to lush, tropical landscaping.
