Tony Soprano and Paulie Walnuts take a quick getaway (from the Feds) to a Marriott in Florida. The hotel name wasn't prominently featured---we had to look real closely at the parking rates sign in the background of this picture to even see that it was a Marriott.

Our first guess is that it's the Marriott Hutchinson Island in Stuart. It definitely doesn't look like South Beach. Plus it has a marina so Tony could take Paulie away on a "bonding" sport fishing trip. Then in the credits we noticed Thank You to the City of Hollywood, FL and we can now say it was the Marriott Hollywood Beach, which used to be a Holiday Inn but recently got a $30 million Marriott makeover.

It still maintains a somewhat outdated Art Deco exterior but guests like the beachfront property and the new interior decor. Another sign that it's perfect for Tony Soprano? A reviewer says this:

The town itself is more like a working-class Jersey beach town than a swanky resort area.

And so much for that Marriott smoking ban. Tony and his lady of the evening enjoy a post-coital smoke.
