The Hotel Florita is the only original nineteenth century building in the Historic District. Built in 1888, it's rooms remain preserved. The main house is breezy and has not been hijacked by conditioned air and television, there is A/C in the courtyard rooms. Fans and 19th century architecture usually keep the place cool. The bar makes extraordinary rum sours - the first is free. The restaurant is excellent and the bar will stay open all night playing - Miles Davis, Motown, Mozart, etc. The courtyard at night is often called magical and evocative. And the town has more than a remnant of its original charm.
