Olshan Properties reopened Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort & Spa in Florida just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday following a $60-million interior and exterior renovation.
The 310-room resort has an “island style re-defined” design aesthetic with color schemes that marry the soft tones of Marco Island’s beach with accents inspired by the blues of the Gulf of Mexico. The marble lobby, updated with new reception, concierge and bell desks bring the outdoors inside with floor-to-ceiling picture windows overlooking the resort’s renovated pool area. Overhead, a crystalline lighting feature evokes the ocean spray from the nearby waters, and a gold-hued art installation reminiscent of the Gulf Coast’s gold coin treasures hangs above the reception desk. Many of the resort’s design details were hand selected by Andrea Olshan.
The guestrooms, all with balconies with ocean views, have new furnishings and enlarged bathrooms with his-and-hers vanities.
Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort & Spa also has the Premier Preferred Collection of one-, two-, and three-room suites with optional connecting rooms and spa-style bathrooms. Premier Preferred guests can select from among seven remodeled poolside rooms and one lanai suite, with patios and direct pool access, and 16 new two-room suites with ocean vistas.
The resort will similarly have a Presidential suite.
For dining, the property has The Deck at 560 Bar & Restaurant, with indoor and outdoor seating with ocean views. The Deck at 560 Bar & Restaurant also has a newly installed Brazilian Walnut deck area. For groups of up to 10 guests, private and semi-private dining options will also available in a secluded section with its own indoor fire pit.
Other dining venues include a grab-and-go concept, 560 Market; and The Gulf Cart, a mobile snack and beverage cart.
The outdoor pool will also be redesigned and will have several fire pits.
Mirroring the new aesthetic of the pool area, when completed by year-end, the Spa at the Hilton Marco Island will have 10 treatment rooms, and indoor and garden teakwood lounge seating around a portico-covered whirlpool. The resort’s fitness center will have new Precor training equipment.
For events, Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort & Spa will expand its 12,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including its 5,000 square-foot Grand Ballroom.
