Fodor's Review

Each awesome room of this Ocean Drive boutique hotel is completely different, fashioned from a mix of antique and garage-sale furnishings selected by the designer of Diesel's clothing-display windows. Rooms are individually named, and repeat guests either try to stay in a different one each time, or else fall in love with one room and request it for every stay. For example, the "Me Tarzan, You Vain" room has a jungle theme, with African wood sculptures and a stick lamp; "Up, Up in the Sky" has a space theme, with a model rocket and off-kilter furniture. The best bet is to head down to the Pelican's porch-front restaurant, which offers one of the most extensive wine lists in town and a bar-none view of Ocean Drive's people parade.
