This magnificant Hotel built as the centerpiece in the City Beautiful (Coral Gables) sits just as regal as she did 9 decades ago. Lot's of legend and lore in the history as well, Al Capone and his mobster buddies loved hanging out here and appearently there is a ghost that likes hanging around in the tower suites.Also home to the largest hotel pool in the country at the time and it still may be. Johnny Weismueller & Esther Williams performed in it.                                                                               LOBBY Now this is a banquet hall!
