Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville hotel set to open in Florida this summer

This summer, the beachfront of Pensacola, Florida will become home to the world’s first Margaritaville hotel. The hotel offers 162 rooms and suites, and each one is “inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle” of the man behind the brand – Jimmy Buffet.

Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with fresh Florida orange juice and a panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico (hopefully without an oil slick).

The hotel restaurant will of course serve signature dishes, such as the “Cheeseburger in Paradise”, and a Margaritaville restaurant is scheduled to open next to the hotel in 2011.

The hotel is on target to open in late June or early July, with rates starting at $299 in the peak season, and $179 in the off season. A reservation request page can be found here.
