TradeWinds Island Grand completes $20-million renovation

The TradeWinds Island Grand Resort, a beachfront resort located directly on the Gulf of Mexico on St. Pete Beach, completed a $20 million restoration of its guest rooms and suites.

The renovation of all 584 rooms, including the pet-friendly suites, began in phases in December 2009. In addition to the rooms, exterior walkway carpeting was replaced with an upgraded, textured surface to give the corridors a look to match the guestroom changes.

The renovated rooms now feature new lighting and bed linens with new pillow shams, lightweight coverlets, and the now popular bed scarves. In addition, the carpet was replaced and new natural stone travertine has appeared in lieu of floor tile. The rooms also received flat screen HD TVs, granite counter tops and unique nature-themed artwork. The color palette throughout the rooms include cool sage greens and warm orange and gold tones, reflective of the $2.5 million meeting space renovation that was completed at the end of 2008.
