Commemorating its 100th anniversary with a multimillion-dollar renovation, this "Queen of the Gulf" retains much of the original charm that earned the resort its stately nickname. Outside, a circular drive, lined with towering palms and formal gardens, leads guests to a magnificently restored interior with soaring columns, mahogany ceilings and massive arched windows that flood the space with golden light. The eight-story hotel has 224 rooms and features a full-service restaurant specializing in fresh local seafood, accompanied by expansive views of the Gulf. All accommodations have Gulf or island views, pillowtop mattresses, marble-surfaced baths with luxurious toiletries and fluffy robes, flat-panel cable TVs with premium channels, complimentary Wi-Fi and wired high-speed internet access. After taking care of some work at the on-site business center, guests can unwind over a cocktail at the elegant lobby bar in a poolside cabana or under a beach umbrella with views of the surf. For more dedicated indulgence, a 10,000-square-foot health club and spa offers everything from yoga classes to sea-of-calm facials. Free airport and local shuttle service is provided, and up to two dogs, each weighing no more than 25 pounds, are allowed for an extra charge and with some restrictions.
