Billed as the only boutique hotel experience in Florida’s capital city, Hotel Duval on North Monroe Street is a member of the Marriott Autograph Collection.

The historic building opened in 1951 and has played host to many of the state’s movers and shakers over the years.

After an extensive makeover that transformed Hotel Duval into an ultra-chic destination, it continues to be a place where the hip want to stay and be seen. The property has 117 rooms and suites, and each floor is customized with color and aroma stimulants “designed to reflect unique mood qualities and heighten the senses.”

The Duval also has two restaurants; the Leroc Bistro offering casual fare and the more upscale Shula’s 347 Grill. Level 8 is the hotel’s rooftop lounge, which provides spectacular views of the city in a sexy atmosphere. Live music happens at the lounge every Friday night.
