Fodor's Review

This seven-story, oft-photographed 1937 archetypal art deco building on Ocean Drive offers a wide range of somewhat dated, Old Florida–style rooms complete with wicker chairs and black-and-white photos of old beach scenes. The Henry Hohauser hotel has some of the beach's best preserved geometrically-patterend terrazzo floors. The so-called "Blue Jewel" also boasts a sculpture garden and a compact pool, the setting of much parading about in swimsuits. There's a roof deck

for sunning, where people also gather to watch movies on Thursday night (with free popcorn and soda) and for yoga on Saturday.
