Can't let Mo-Eye have all of the fun in Florida.

Here is a brochure I have from the Quality Inn in Destin. Very similar to the Hilton Inn in St. Petersburg with the round design and a a revolving roof bar.

Here is the building.



A very cool rendering of the lobby area with what looks like Witcos and a black velvet nude on the wall



Renderings of the Island Girl Lounge and the Hawaiki Dining Room that rotates.



The description.

The Hawaiki Inn!
I grew up in Destin and ate at the Hawaiki Restaurant umpteen times with my parents!
The hotel was actually a client of my Dad's ad agency.
Here's a hotel postcard:

Hey Murph, any old family photos of the restaurant? That would be nice to see.

Here is an advertisement from the grand opening of the Hawaiki Restaurant and Island Girl lounge from 1972.




Gotta love the rum barrels and pineapple mugs.
