Pelican Hotel

4 stars
4.3 / 5 38 reviews
Owned by the same creative folks behind the Diesel Jeans company, the Pelican (whose brazen, albeit appropriate, motto is "A myth in its own limelight") is South Beach's only self-professed "toy-hotel," in which each of its 30 rooms and suites is decorated as outrageously as some of the area's more colorful drag queens. Each room has been designed daringly and rather wittily by Swedish interior decorator Magnus Ehrland, whose countless trips to antiques markets, combined with his wild imagination, have turned room no. 309, for instance, into the "Psychedelic(ate) Girl," room no. 201 into the "Executive Fifties" suite, and room no. 209 into the " Love, Peace and Leafforest" room. But the most popular is the tough-to-score room no. 215, or the "Best Whorehouse," which is said to have made even former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss red with envy. The Penthouse that occupies the top floor is almost more 007 than James Bond's own pad -- very '60s, in color and pattern, with a big aquarium built into a copper wall and a yellow Shultz table and chair. Credit card required at check in. Name on credit card must match name on reservation....Pet Policy: We accept pets less than 20 lbs. There is a $100.00 non refundable cleaning fee due at check in. There is an additional fee of $25.00 per day per pet. Valet Parking is $27.00 plus tax per night. Non Florida residents will pay the hotel any rate difference if booking a resident rate.

  • Best Time to Go

    Florida vacations are great anytime of the year. The weather is mild year-round, with a subtropical and tropical climate. Annual temperatures are between 65oF and 84oF. Florida is a popular tourist attraction for individuals seeking to travel away from cold temperatures, or to enjoy the hot climate in the summer. Travelers can find bargain deals on hotel accommodations between June and September. Winter season is a little more expensive for Florida visitors due the tourist peak season between December and April. Autumn is a season of cool weather, and a relaxed atmosphere. Anytime is a great time to visit Florida’s amusement parks.

  • Disney World

    Experience the various attractions at the famous Disney World theme park in Orlando.

  • Sarasota

    Head to Sarasota to tour the Ringling Museum of Art and attend the Ringling International Arts Festival held in October.

  • Capital Grille

    When it is time to sit down for a bite to eat, head over to the Capital Grille in Miami.

  • Busch Gardens

    Those that are embarking on Florida travel with a family will enjoy the attractions at the Busch Gardens theme park in Tampa Bay.

  • Gatorland

    Florida is well-known for its alligator population, and Gatorland in Orlando has crocodiles and alligators from all over the world.

  • Florida highlights
  • Panhandle

    Think of the Panhandle as Florida's cousin from the Deep South; same family, different accent. Explore the area for traces of Southern roots, from plantation-style homes in Tallahassee to rustic seafood shacks in Apalachicola. As a family destination, it's easy on the budget thanks to a bevy of residential-style hotels designed for extended stays and pint-sized entertainment (read: lazy rivers and water umbrellas). Outside, revel in Mother Nature's freebies: state parks made for trekking and stretches of powdery sand to sink in.

  • Tampa Bay

    Tampa's all-American appeal is obvious from mansion-studded and rollerblader-frequented Bayshore Boulevard and during rollicking fests such as Guavaween and the Gasparilla Pirate Parade. Amble the brick-lined, iron-wrought streets in historic Ybor City and think you're in New Orleans – until you're teased by the flamenco dancers and heaping plates of Cuban fare at the Columbian Restaurant. Beyond the "metro," frugal Florida travelers won't have to sacrifice outdoor time for fun. Tampa Bay residents practically live on the beach, from pristine Fort de Soto Park (a regular on Dr. Beach's best beaches list) to tidy Pass-A-Grille, a coast dazzled by the pink palace otherwise known as Loews Don CeSar Hotel.

  • Miami

    Don't be discouraged by the couture kittens, yacht partiers and Mazarati drivers in South Beach; despite the emphasis on affluence, not everyone lives large in America's Riviera. Tourists can still partake in the excess from afar. Follow the lighting equipment to Lummus Park to spy on a photo shoot or wander by the bistro tables along Ocean Drive. You might spot a movie star. And for budget-sensible fun from the beach, hotel hop the Art Deco district with your camera; those neon-lit facades and sexy lounges are worth capturing even if you're not a guest in the penthouse suite.

  • Orlando

    Mickey Mouse will always have our hearts at Disney World – that's a given. Beyond the theme parks, however, are local Florida travel diversions that don't have to break the bank, starting with an inner tube ride down Rainbow River Rock State Park. On dry land, escape to the World of Orchids for fragrant, jungle air, catch the daily parade of ducks in the Peabody Orlando or dare to stare in the eyes of a gator at Gatorland, more contained and only slightly less intimidating a setting than Alligator Alley.

  • Florida Keys

    Florida beach towns tempt with postcard flair, yet extra style points go the Keys, which spells paradise from every Hemingway bungalow, coral reef and beach bar. The main drag – Duval Street – is a free exercise in people watching, thanks to wall-to-wall bars, souvenir shops, bikers, drag queens and free-roaming Key West Gypsy chickens and roosters. Yes, we said it, anything goes in the Keys.
