Pelican Hotel

826 Ocean Dr. (Eighth St.) Miami Beach FL

Themed rooms with fun, funky décor, sponsored by a fashion company.

This 30-room hotel is owned by Diesel fashions, and the company's quirky stamp is all over the property. To enter the hotel, guests walk in through the busy bar to the back reception area. Here, they'll be greeted by a space-age Western motif. The reception desk-cum-sales counter, for example, is made of studded leather. A neon fire blazes in one corner. Diesel ads, naturally, line the walls. Even the public bathrooms are a study in off-kilter design, with clear hanging beads at the entrance, heavy Medieval-style wooden stall doors that pull closed with large chains, and a trough as a sink. The Pelican restaurant features world cuisine with an Italian influence and an award-winning wine list. Designed by Magnus Ehrland, all accommodations are themed with names such as Best Whorehouse with décor to match. The three-bedroom penthouse suite is the hotel's pièce de résistance. The kitchen has Sub-Zero-style appliances, and the living room boasts a wall with 50-inch plasma screens as well as a six-foot fish tank. The master bedroom has a round, queen-sized bed. Celebrities from Yoko Ono to John F. Kennedy, Jr. have slept here.
