O meu passeio pela OCEAN DRIVE foi no cimo do 1º andar de um autocarro numa visita SIGHTSEEING com o bus em andamento,
daí que algumas das fotos estejam meio inclinadas,
porque além do carro estar em movimento, eu tentava evitar a cabeça dos outros turistas que tinha à frente da máquina fotográfica...trabalho difícil e complicado.
O 1º HOTEL que captei é o "PARK CENTRAL HOTEL"
Known as "The Blue Jewel" along Miami Beach's famed Ocean Drive, The Park Central Hotel is an oceanfront, pastel-hued ART DECO classic where old-school charm and elegance meets modern, contemporary indulgence.
Built in 1937 and fully restored in 1987, the renowned Park Central Hotel is more than just a hotel - it's a Miami landmark whose rich history whisks you back to a time where glamour trumps glitz, service reigns supreme and the "GOLDEN ERA" energy that made MIAMI the famed city it is today, is very much alive and buzzing.
The only thing more impressive than our oceanfront accommodations is the rich history that surrounds you at THE PARK CENTRAL HOTEL.
Designed by Henry Hohauser, one of the foremost architects of the art deco movement, The Park Central Hotel on South Beach is widely regarded as a shining example of his work - a jewel in the crown of Miami Beach hotels.
From the iconic 1947 Buick parked outside on Ocean Drive to the black & white Art Deco photographs by renowned photographer Gleason Romer that adorn the halls,
this beachfront boutique hotel offers an authentic ambiance that is perfect for a romantic break for two or a vacation in FLORIDA for the whole family.

MAJESTIC HOTEL MIAMI is in the heart of the ART DECO DISTRICT on fashionable OCEAN DRIVE, across from the beach.
The Majestic is just a short distance from the Miami Beach Convention Center, Lincoln Road and most of Miami's and South Beach's major attractions.

This genuine Art Deco jewel, one of South Beach's landmarks, offers stylish accommodations.
The hotel features 49 King and Double rooms, all with LCD TVs. The guest rooms at the Majestic Hotel are all non-smoking.
The Majestic Hotel Miami is in a great location, close to the outdoor cafes and restaurants, bars, clubs, world-class shopping, and the wealth of recreation offered along Miami Beach.
Guests staying in this Art Deco District hotel can walk to just about everything, including the beach, which is across the street.
Business travelers will find the hotel convenient, with the Miami Beach Convention Center just 10 blocks away.
Miami International Airport is about 15 minutes by car or taxi.
Great restaurants are located within a short walk of the hotel, including the nearby Mark's South Beach (rated AAA 4 diamonds) with a menu featuring fresh seafood as well as steaks, pasta, salads, and a wide variety of other dishes.
Discounted drinks are also available at the Carlton Hotel lobby bar.
The Majestic Hotel Miami is surrounded by plenty of fine restaurants and outdoor cafes to choose from along Ocean Drive, Collins Avenue, and beyond
