Boutique Art Deco Miami Beach Hotel
PELICAN HOTEL MIAMI BEACH RENZO ROSSO

THE COOLEST HOTEL IN
SOUTH BEACH

Pelican hotel is a historical Art Deco building constructed in 1939 and as a matter of fact a love story between the Art Deco building and cutting edge designer Renzo Rosso CEO of Diesel Jeans.  It was purchased by Rosso  one month after seeing it! Why does it work? because; it uniquely and wonderfully brings to life the Diesel philosophy. The quirky, surreal, state-of-the-art sense of humor  of the hugely successful Italian clothing conglomerate comes through in every pore of the Pelican.

THE PELICAN HOTEL MIAMI BEACH IS ART DECO

As a matter of fact, the Pelican became a hit with the fashion, music and of coarse publishing set. Every one of the rooms you will see is completely different from the other coupled with their own tittle!

  •  309 is  (a standard room with a queen size bed) is also called “Psychedelic (ate) Girl”
  • Room 302 is uniquely designed with bamboo furnishings.  This Ocean View Queen Room is also known as the  “Big Bamboo”
  • One of our fabulous prime suites is room 201,  also known as “Executive Fifties” and comes with a knock out ocean View, king-size bed and full couch.

All of the rooms are tooled after their themes. The hotel’s most popular room is (Room 215) “Best Whorehouse” which by the way looks like a bordello the hooker madam Heidi Fleiss would envy!

PELICAN HOTEL MIAMI BEACH HISTORY

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS VINTAGE

Magnus Ehrland designed Pelican and was said that he spent every weekend for just over seven months, scouring garage sales, flea markets and antique stores all over the state of Florida. He wouldn’t rest until he had the right assortment of one-of-a-kind furnishings. Mr. Ehrland’s kitschy props help make the perfect Pelican statement.

MEET THE ARCHITECTS

Equally important for the Pelican was it’s Architect.  The hotel was built in 1948 by architect Henry Hohauarser (1895-1963), who along with L. Murray Dixon were considered the principal architects of South Beach Deco. Hohauser was educated at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and came to Florida in 1932.  Here he quickly gained repute as one of the most prominent architects in Miami Beach as a matter of fact he was best known for working the Nautical Moderne style.

One can say that the Pelican Hotel architecture can be uniquely identified more with the Miami Moderne (MiMo) style of that era.
