PENSACOLA BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Despite the oil leak's impact on the Gulf coast, musician Jimmy Buffett opened the doors on a brand new hotel on Pensacola Beach.

The beachfront hotel has 162 rooms and suites. Half of it overlooks the Gulf. The other half, Santa Rosa Sound. The new hotel offers a pool bar, entertainment area and Frank and Lola's Restaurant. You may remember, 'Frank and Lola' was a Buffet song about a couple on their second honeymoon in Pensacola.

Room rates are seasonal but vary from 200 to 500 dollars a night.
