HISTORY

THE COOLEST HOTEL IN
SOUTH BEACH

From the day it opened its doors for the first time on June 1, 1994 - the Pelican has been the coolest hotel in the heart of South Beach. The $4million dollar Fellini-esque boutique property is the first hotel venture from the cutting-edge Diesel Jeans. It works because; it uniquely and wonderfully brings to life the Diesel philosophy. The quirky, surreal, state-of-the-art sense of humor the identity of the hugely successful Italian clothing conglomerate comes through in every pore of the Pelican.

THE PELICAN HOTEL MIAMI BEACH IS ART DECO

The Art Deco hotel has understandably become a hit with the fashion, music and publishing set. Every one of the 29 rooms you see is completely different from the other. All have been daringly and wittily designed by the Swedish interior decorator Magnus Ehrland and they all come with their own titles. For instance, Room 309 (a standard room with a queensize bed) is called “Psychedelic (ate) Girl” Room 302 (the gorgeous ocean-front suite with a queensize bed) is called “Big Bamboo”. Room 201 (the fabulous oceanfront suite with the king-size bed), is called “Executive Fifties”. The rooms are tooled after their themes. Thus the hotel’s most popular room (Room 215) “Best Whorehouse” looks like a bordello the hooker madam Heidi Fleiss would envy. Miami, Florida and south beach in particular are known to be extraordinarily different and the Pelican Hotel fits that genre perfectly.

Magnus Ehrland said he spent every weekend forjust over seven months, scouring garage sales, flea markets and antique stores all over the state of Florida. He wouldn’t rest until he had the right assortment of one-of-a-kind furnishings. Mr. Ehrland’s kitschy props help make the perfect Pelican statement.

It is like managing 29 different movie sets. Yet even with the often outrageous quirks, each Pelican room is fully equipped with state-of-the-art high-tech options. The television remote flashes 60-odd channels per minute. The VCR offers the crispest picture, and is very easy to use. The Stereo and CD systems, as they say in the streets - “are slammin!!” Refrigerators, Ceiling Fans and A/C’s along with the Electronic Personal Safes, are also top-of-the-line. The bathrooms too, take on particular detailing. And it is there that the Diesel industrial influence is most readily apparent. The fixtures are pristine and precise. The Pelican shower, for instance, with the strong, steady stream pulsing from the broad showerheads, gives the effect of standing under a loving spring rain. The essential attention to even the smallest detail. That’s what sets the Pelican apart from the rest. And that’s what maintains its reputation as one of the finest hotels on Miami Beach.
