This is a 3-story domestic building in the Miami Modern style built in 1958. The building is rectangular in plan. 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.
