Following a $320-million renovation (facilitated by Mass Mutual), the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club & Spa off the coast of southwest Florida has been converted into the 726-room JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort.
In 2015, the resort started phase one of a three-phase makeover and brand-conversion project, expanding the pool decks, refurbishing the lobby and a new porte-cochere and grand front entrance. The second phase, which wrapped up on December 31, 2016, updated the hotel guestrooms and resort culinary offerings, including the addition of two new restaurants, Ario and Maia, as well as an all-new beachfront tiki bar, Kane.
The property will also soon have a 94-room, adults-only tower, scheduled to open in the fall of 2017. This tower will have a rooftop pool, restaurant and 12,000 square feet indoor entertainment center. Designed by Florida based design and architecture firm, EoA Group, the new tower will have views of the Gulf of Mexico, designed to establish a link between the building and the environment.
Once completed, the resort will have a total of 100,000 square feet of flexible event space, and 810 guestrooms and suites.
