Part of the new management team at the hotel includes GM Eric Bates, who has worked for The Bricton Group for eight years and Marriott for 15. Bates was most recently positioned at Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa.

The renovation will include all parts of the resort including upgrades to the exterior of the building, new signage, the King’s Wharf restaurant and reinvented public spaces including the lobby and rooms. The Gettys Group will provide interior design, branding, procurement and program management expertise for the renovation of the resort.
