Architectural Description:

This is a 3-story domestic building in the Miami Modern style built in 1958. The structural system is concrete block stucco. The foundation is spread footing. Exterior walls are stucco. The building has a flat roof. Windows are replacement aluminum jalacy casement. There is a single-story, full-span open porch characterized by an integrated (under the main) roof. Front porch extends slightly out from beneath the building, taking up nearly the entire length of the east elevation; Stuccoed wall with cheese hole cutouts is the railing. Original primary entryway is centered on the porch on the east elevation, which is now a storefront for retail space; Primary entryway for the hotel is virtually nonexistant- hotel guests register along the south elevation and are guided directly to their rooms.
