EoA renovates New River-inspired Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa

Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa completed a renovation that saw changes made to the guestrooms and lobby.

The guestrooms now have improved furnishings, fixtures, flooring and décor including natural woods and textures with sea life-inspired artwork.

The inspiration scheme, spearheaded by Miami-based EoA, was drawn from the New River in South Florida, which according to a legend by the Seminole Indian Tribe of Florida was an underground river that appeared after a night of strong winds. The river originates in the Everglades and flows east, passing through Fort Lauderdale and then entering the Atlantic Ocean. The design inspiration is based on the movement of the river leading toward the ocean, which is captured in the detailing of the headboards in the guestrooms.

There are also desk spaces accented with a quartz finish, while artwork illustrating sea life hangs above the beds. The bathroom design incorporates such details as sliding doors to maximize space, low shower bar and a shower head that is placed on the wall opposite of the handles.
