Daddy O's new management team will oversee the upcoming renovations to the hotel's guestrooms, corridors and public spaces. Representatives from HRI Lodging told the South Florida Business Journal that dates and details about the improvements will be announced later.

The hotel previously had $4 million in renovations in 2009. Both boutique and chain hospitality brands are updating rapidly to stay competitive in South Florida's booming hotel market as dozens of major projects move through the construction pipeline across Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
