An Old New Hotel

When I was young, I remember four hotels in Coral Gables. We had the magnificent Biltmore and three smaller ones that had Spanish architecture, all built in the 20's. In the 50's they were in bad shape. One of the Spanish ones, the Antilla was was torn down to make way for that beauty that you see today. Now 50 years later it really looks out of place. The remaining 3 have been refurbished and they are competing very well with the new mega hotels.
