The curvilinear architecture of the new hotel, by Design Duncan Miller Ullman, provides every guest room with a clear view of the Gulf of Mexico.

The 15-story hotel has four restaurants, a zero-entry outdoor swimming pool and a full-service spa and fitness center, plus 17,000 square feet of event space indoors and outdoors.
