This boutique hotel on the Intracoastal Waterway near the Boca Inlet has views of Lake Boca and the ocean that can't be beat, especially from higher-up floors and the penthouse restaurant, Carmen's at the Top of the Bridge. The ground-floor restaurant, WaterColors, offers great views of passing boats and is Boca's only restaurant on the Intracoastal Waterway. The beach is a three-minute walk away, and restaurants, galleries, and boutiques are a short drive. Comfortable
accommodations and an ideal location are the main draws. Rooms are decorated in typical Boca style, with pale woods and rattan—nothing spectacular, yet quite presentable.
