Since opening its doors in 1927, the Cavalier Hotel has welcomed 10 presidents and luminaries from Frank Sinatra to Elizabeth Taylor. Today, the hotel has been meticulously restored to its original grandeur, blending the timeless luxury of a bygone era with the comfort, amenities and technology that today’s travelers demand. Following a 4-year, multi-million-dollar renovation, the hotel has been beautifully restored to its original grandeur, offering travelers all the comfort and elegance of yesterday, with today’s modern amenities and conveniences.  Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the hotel gives a nod to both its past and present. Eighty-five completely reimagined guest rooms and suites each feature plush fabrics, gleaming bathrooms and tasteful room appointments. Guests also enjoy a long list of luxury amenities, from a classic indoor “splash” pool and private beach club to world-class dining and a full-service spa.
