From L.A. to B Ocean Hotel proves quite a trip

Where the "B" is.....

Flying on Virgin  America-- California’s quirky carrier—from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale to  overnight at the B  Ocean, Florida’s quirkiest, but chic, hotel, proved quite the trip.

It began with some serious in-flight turbulence with your LA Travel stuck,  bouncing around in the bathroom. The Virgin pilot did warn us, but when you’ve  got to go you go.  The rest of the flight (and trip) moved along  smoothly.

Virgin America offers  most non-stop flights and best fares to Fort  Lauderdale from Los Angeles. The airline also gives passengers top notch  inflight service and amenities. Similarly the B Ocean is not only one  of the best values in South Florida for room rates, food and beverages, it’s the  most delightfully idiosyncratic hotels around. Consider it, if you will, for a  fun spring break or break from reality.

 

The hotel is ideal for people from Los Angeles who fly to Fort Lauderdale to  board a cruise. The three hour time change makes it impossible to arrive on time  for the usual 5 PM departure unless you book a red eye. That’s the reason your  savvy Travel Diva/cruise expert stayed at the B Ocean—to “B” on time for  embarkation on the Seabourn Sojourn. We are now on board the spiffy ship  heading to Monte Carlo (which you will read more about and on my National Cruise  Examiner site:  http://http://www.examiner.com/cruise-88-in-national/patti-pietschmann).   But for now let’s stick with the “B”.

The year old property plays off the name every way possible from the b’stro on the beach (sic), to promos such as “B Our Guest”, “B  where you want to B”, “B active”, and a lot of other “bs” which are printed and  placed  in your room.  There’s an amazing over-sized iPad-like device  in the lobby that links you up with every tourist option from restaurants to  attractions.

Even the spa is unusual. It’s actually a suite on the second floor where  guests go for massages that are pure b-liss especially when performed by Maria  or Katia.  The tiny fitness room would not pass muster with active  Angelenos, but then the ocean and a long stretch of beach awaits joggers and  swimmers just across the street. There is also a small pool on property.   Other amenities include free WiFi and local calls, $5 snacks in your room, a  plush sea turtle on every bed, and free (really good) morning coffee.

The highlight of the hotel is the food served in two restaurants:  SAIA,  which features Nobu quality  Asian tapas and the b’stro with its own take on French fare. Stay tuned for more  about both in “Diva discoveries” that is coming soon to this page.  B Hotel  manager Joel Darr is particularly proud of the cuisine.  “Open Table calls SAIA the best Asian restaurant in South  Florida,” Joel boasted. “But, the b’stro’s always a favorite with guests, locals  and my wife, “he added.

Joel describes his hotel’s style as whimsical, sensitive, fun, humane and  adult-friendly.  “We’re not meant for kids and we don’t accept pets,” he  explained.There are so many unique touches that define this hotel that you just  have to B there.
