In most cases, hurricanes and tropical storms can really put a damper on a vacation. At Solé on the Ocean in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla. (just north of Miami Beach), however, theyre a cause for celebration. For each named storm, the hotel will give guests a predetermined perk or discount, from a waived resort fee for Jose to a free room upgrade for Lee to 30 percent off the room rate for Whitney. If theres more than one named storm on the horizon when you book, all the perks apply. Moreover, 5 percent of all reservations will be donated to a hurricane relief fund.
All of Solé on the Oceans 249 rooms sport private terraces, floor-to-ceiling windows with water views, and pillow-top mattresses. A health club and spa, swimming pool, and cocktail lounge round out the offerings. Standard rates start at $159/night. To score the discounts and freebies, call the hotel at 786-923-9300 and mention the name of the storm, through November 30. www.soleontheocean.com
