The Pelican is the first hotel created by Italian fashion giant Diesel in Miami Beach, in the heart of the famous “Deco District”.
Here, Diesel discovered this building of the 40’s and strictly maintaining the facade and the name, Diesel in conjunction with the unique taste of the Swedish designer Magnus Ehrland, transformed this building into an eccentric space, with the most up-dated and bizarre comforts. Those of you, who know the advertising campaigns of Diesel, know what we mean: photographs and video’s with happenings full of paradoxes and extravagant statements, kitsch with humor or clearly nonsense and explicit referrals to the myth of the so-called American Dream. Within this concept and atmosphere, the 29 rooms and the two penthouses have been decorated. All the rooms have been furnished and named after their own style, each one with that unique attention to details you could find in movie sets. A toy-hotel decorated with taste and no compromises, playing around different styles, recycled furniture and objects in an exquisite design and contemporary flair.
Within hundreds of great reviews, recently (September 2010) the Pelican has been featured in the Today Show with Al Rocker on NBC as one of the most unique hotel in the world. The American magazine Dwell has named the Pelican Hotel as one of the 16 hipster hotel in USA.
