A Florida oasis.
Light pours in through high transom windows and fills the vaulted lobby with warm Florida sun. A wall of glass doors expands the interior space to an exterior covered patio where the sound of water and lush landscape create a tropical oasis. Utilizing landscape and light the familiar Marriott brand was infused with local Florida character creating a true Oasis on a tight site.
The hotel turns inward to create a sense of tropical privacy and allows the surrounding urban activity to disappear. A water wall screens a direct view of parking and traffic. The half basketball court, water volleyball court and swimming pool layered with trellis, lighting and landscape screen the immediately adjacent hotel property. The L Shape layout and angled entry lobby allow views to be focused on manicured tranquil spaces.
