You can't get any closer to the beach than this seven-story oceanfront hotel. Most rooms have ocean views, but for true drama get a room on the east end, facing the water. If sand isn't your thing, enjoy the ocean breeze and live music on the 10,000-square-foot deck, "the largest pool deck on the Space Coast." The property also offers a variety of nonmotorized water-sport rentals and surf lessons. With purple, gold, and green soft goods, room style is more Mardi Gras than
beach resort, and yet rooms also feature Hilton Serenity Beds.
