Miami Modern.

The Sea Gull Hotel has a series of Art Deco & MiMo features such as glass blocks on the north east elevation but it begins to separate itself from the Art Deco style when it loses its symmetrical appearance. The north facade has a series of eyebrows, however, the windows have Miami Modern projected masonry window frames. The structure has 4 balconies on the 3rd floor that flow with the facades eyebrow.

The interior of the hotel is uniquely designed but not original. It has a Mediterranean revival theme with clay barrel tiles. In the back of the lobby there is a mural depicting the beach and sail boat and other beach objects.

The front porch cochere signage was lost.
