The Madison Fire Island Pines
The acclaimed Madison Fire Island Pines is different from anything you’ve ever experienced in this famed gay community. The Advocate recommends it as the best place to stay in the Pines, and raves about its “chic” accommodations. Stylish and modern, it’s a place where flat-screen televisions, high-speed internet service and massages by the pool are just the beginning. There’s a grand deck, a huge pool and a roof deck with panoramic views of the Pines. All rooms come with air conditioning and private baths. And the location is unbelievable: It’s sixty seconds from the beach and sixty seconds from the harbor. Fire Island finally has a weekend home as beautiful as the Pines itself.
Located in the center of the commercial district, guests enjoy the privilege of staying steps away from all the restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and, of course, the beautiful beach. As a tribute to its rich history, we bid adieu to the Hotel Ciel name, reinstating the Botel identity which it held since its construction in 1960.
