Boutique hotel lends a European feel away from beach masses..
Overshadowed, literally, by the beachfront monoliths, this bohemian resort doesn't aspire to be a haven for innertube-rolling families. Instead, it uses its location that is a couple of blocks away from the Atlantic shoreline, as a garden retreat. Accommodations are housed in four low-rise Mediterranean buildings. Duplex suites offer two floors of living space, with a spiral staircase separating the living area from the balcony-blessed bedroom upstairs. Plasma televisions are available on both levels. Studio suites offer smaller, single-floor solution. The trendy Washington Avenue nightclubs and restaurants are just down the street.
