Set on the site of the former City Hall, the 130-room hotel pays homage to the historic landmark through its interior design and culinary offerings. With interior design led by EDG Design, Lido House merges nautical flair with Cape Cod-style architecture. 

The hotel also has five residential-style, three-level cottages, each with 1,300 square feet, including a rooftop patio, personal BBQ and fireplace. Each of the cottages have a distinct design motif created by a different local designer, including Grace Blu Design, Jennifer Mehditash Design, Brooke Wagner Designer, Erica Bryen Design and Blackband Design.
