This 1960s-era concrete block has been redesigned within an inch of its life, with excellent results—if Weggis is Florida, this hotel is South Beach. The hotel's "playrooms," each with their own balconies and views of the lake, have sleek, modern furnishings with brilliantly colored highlights—an apple-green vase, say, or a lipstick-red coffee table. The toys inside include flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations, and PlayStation 3 video game systems. Across the street,
the hotel has a terrace bar directly on the lake.
