The Beach Plaza Hotel occupies a historic art deco boutique property nestled a block from the beach and helmed by management zealously sworn to providing luxurious accommodations. Superior rooms combine the hotel's prevalent art deco aesthetic with breezy tropical décor, creating inviting accommodations more restful than re-creating a vintage pinup portrait with bed sheets and a ceiling fan. A king bed or two double dream machines allow customers respite from the summer sun, and cool bathrooms dappled with tile and dark-wood detailing offer up Ecossential bath amenities to lather away sand and sunscreen. Travelers can stay connected to the outside realm with cable TV and wireless, and those wishing to fully escape can disappear into nearby restaurants, boutiques, and psychedelic rabbit holes. Guests can also take part in afternoon wine receptions hosted by the hotel, or lounge in the courtyard for mixed drinks and hookah.
