The Colony Hotels
- (Colony Hotel) 89 Chestnut Residence is a university residence operated by the University of Toronto, opposite the Metropolitan Hotel on Chestnut Street.
Colony Hotel, 736 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach
One of the many Art Deco style hotels that line Ocean Drive and Collins in South Beach / Miami Beach, Florida. The Colony Hotel was built in 1939. It has 46 rooms including 4 large ocean view suites that have just been redecorated. The four ocean view rooms go for over $400 per night off-season and $650 per night during high season. Three of the smaller regular rooms do not have closets (guess which type of room I ended up in). The Colony sign is lit up with blue neon at night. Unfortunately the lighting for the "L" was broken on all three sides of the sign while I was there.
I stayed at the Colony for 5 days in October 2011. The main advantages of this hotel is the location and the reasonable rates (not counting the suites). The prices were affordable since the main tourist season does not start until in mid-November. Despite that, South Beach is still crowded on the weekends. This photo was taken at 9:30 am (which is like 6:30 am in other towns) before the crowds came out.
