Many hotels across the country are starting the new year off with a fresh look.
From re-imagined lobbies to new restaurants to updated rooms, hotel operators are hoping the new year brings more clientele.
Here are few of the most recent notable hotel renovations.
Sirata Beach Resort, St. Pete Beach, Florida
This seaside resort on Florida’s Gulf Coast has just completed a $15 million transformation.
Prior to the renovation, the resort had only one pool. Now it has two with the building of the south pool, which has cabanas and sun loungers. Guests can order food and drinks while listening to live bands.
Sirata Beach Resort’s Rum Runners Bar & Grille has re-opened with a new open lounge area for sunset watching. It has new Adirondack chairs, cocktail tables and a fire pit. The resort also added a new breezeway walking path lined with private lanais.
Renovations at the resort, built in the 1950s, began last year with the redesign of its 382 guestrooms and suites, the renovation of the north pool, a Sprouts Kid’s Splash Zone, a hanging chair garden, and upgraded meetings and event space.
“The modernized design, new lounge areas and activities will create an even better beachside destination for families, weekend getaways, celebrations, honeymooners and more,” says Jeff Abbaticchio, director of marketing at Sirata Beach Resort.
