Because our historic buildings are made of wood, and lack modern sprinkler systems, our insurance company requires us to prohibit smoking in all indoor areas of the hotel, including guest rooms. The State of Florida prohibits smoking in the Cafe and Bar areas. Smoking is currently permitted in designated outdoor areas on the 2nd floor sundeck, as well in the courtyard next to the outdoor Jacuzzi. Several of our rooms have seating areas under a covered deck or balcony directly in front of the room, which is a pleasant place to relax and smoke. You can inquire about the availability of one of these rooms when you make your reservation.
