A checkered past

Storied Past, Bright Future

 The historic and iconic Streamline Hotel has had many milestones over the years from The Birthplace of Stock Car Racing and Headquarters of the Women’s Auxiliary Army Corp during WWII to a more recent feature on Travel Channel’s Hotel Impossible. Streamline’s Art Deco architecture, Free Mason symbology and mysterious hotel safe add to her allure.

During Renovations this entrance to a tunnel that used to run to the beach was found. Our lobby was located on the second floor due to this hidden source of income...

The Long Road Back….

 In May of 2017 the historic Streamline Hotel officially crossed the finish-line of its $6 million renovation and reopened it’s doors to the public.

Owner Edmond Hennessy took great pride in keeping the historic aspect of the original hotel and adding elements of South Beach style to bring it up to date.

Every room on every floor has had great care taken to preserve history and give guests a high end stay from a boutique hotel that they keep coming back for. 

Birthplace of NASCAR

 
 On December 14, 1947 the landmark meeting that set the foundation for major-league stock car racing happened on the Rooftop of our Hotel, just steps from Daytona’s shores. The northern Florida beachfront had long been a site for automotive derring-do and land-speed records before stock car racing’s early growth. Sensing a need to organize and develop a rules structure and standards for promotion, Bill France Sr. and other prominent figures in the sport kicked off a three-day meeting with the intent of creating a sanctioning body.Those talks ended Feb. 21, 1948 with the founding of NASCAR.  

  "The purpose of this association is to unite all stock car racing under one set of rules; to set up a benevolent fund and a national point standing system whereby only one stock car driver will be crowned national champion."

                                      -Bill France, Sr.
