We had the pleasure of spending a weekend at Apalachicola's Consulate suites. The rooms were beyond our high expectations (the web site does not do them justice) and the town was a rare jewel on a coast that (that, let's admit it, has been ruined by crappy development). Great night's sleep and we woke to shrimpmen and oystermen heading out on the boats right off our balcony overlooking the Apalachicola river.
Bathroom had the original antique fixtures on the antique bath. You can tell the room was obviously put together by people who understood comfort and know how to live and not just by an interior designer. GREAT place
The restaurants downtown were a little too self aware to be truly great but the town itself is not. Its still real, and that my friends is a rare treat in Florida.
