DDA completes $18M conversion of Hotel Colonnade Coral Gables

The property was formerly known as The Westin Colonnade, Coral Gables.

Hotel Colonnade Coral Gables, formerly The Westin Colonnade, Coral Gables (Fla.), and the newest addition to Starwood Hotel & Resorts Worldwide’s Tribute Portfolio, completed an $18-million renovation.

The 157-guestroom property was acquired by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust in 2014. On the site of The Colonnade Building, erected in the 1920’s by Coral Gables founder George Merrick, the hotel now has newly imagined spaces by Dawson Design Associates. Each space has a Latin vibe, inspired by the local destination.

The existing vaulted ceilings and grand staircase in the lobby are now centered under a stained glass “rosary” style window and oversized Murano glass chandeliers. There is a newly introduced lobby bar, while a game room has a pool table, shuffleboard, TVs and a bar area.

Hotel Colonnade Coral Gables is located adjacent to the Miracle Mile shopping district. Other amenities include a fitness facility, complete with a whirlpool/hot tub and an outdoor heated pool.

The renovation of the hotel is part of the larger, neighborhood-wide $21-million streetscape project that is expected to reshape the city’s Miracle Mile and Giralda Avenue. The result will be wider, walkable sidewalks, additional outdoor dining and new trees lining the streets.
