From the day it opened its doors for the first time in 1994 - the Pelican has been the coolest hotel in the heart of South Beach. This boutique property is the first hotel venture from the cutting-edge clothing company Diesel. At the Pelican Hotel, you can always count on our beautiful theme rooms now meticulously restored in all their glory to original pristine condition thanks to the craftsmanship of local artisans. Its designer, Magnus Ehrland said he spent every weekend for just 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.
