The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village Reveals $15 Million Renovation

USA, Cape Coral, Florida. June 17, 2021

The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village debuts a $15 million renovation. The comprehensive, guestroom-focused transformation debuts almost a full year ahead of schedule - a silver lining resulting from the nationwide hotel closures that impacted 2020.

The hotel's renovation was inspired by the concept of biophilia, a belief that people have an innate desire to connect with nature. As a result, new room interiors feature a collection of natural elements in their purest form to create a contemporary residential aesthetic. Each spacious guestroom includes a collection of locally sourced materials from Florida, including wood and glass elements, along with a soothing fluid pattern motif, a complement to the hotel's stunning waterfront views.

In addition to room enhancements, the hotel renovation increased guestroom inventory from 293 rooms to 308 rooms by converting 15 three-bedroom suites into two-bedroom suites and upgrading the remaining accommodations into new deluxe guestrooms.

"Our team worked tirelessly over the last year to debut a property which thoughtfully caters to Cape Coral's rising number of local and leisure travelers while also supporting our robust bridal and group business," says Michael Tighe, general manager of The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village. "After a year that inspired us to embrace the great outdoors, our design concept, which reflects the natural beauty of Southwest Florida and celebrates Westin's wellness-centric ethos, is a natural extension of the travel experience our guests have been favoring."

The guest room renovation and addition of 15 units will better cater to The Westin Cape Coral's strong group business vertical. In 2018, the property debuted a state-of-the-art, 30,000-square foot meetings and events center, The Tarpon Point Ballroom, transforming The Westin Cape Coral into a comprehensive, one-stop destination for elevated meetings and event experiences.

"As we settle into a new, post-pandemic, normal, we understand meetings and events planners are opting for venues with ample outdoor spaces, plenty of room for social distancing, and flexible accommodations for guests. By infusing natural elements into our guest rooms and expanding our room count, we're providing planners with the experiences their clients are craving and offering them more opportunities to customize safe and memorable experiences, ranging from intimate affairs to larger banquet events," Tighe says.

Additional new amenities include the Fridge Fill program, which provides in-room ingredient baskets for restaurant-quality, ready-made meals to be enjoyed from the comfort of guests' newly renovated suites.

Architecture & Design: Welcome Home

Hotels are still very concerned about adhering to all required sanitation protocols but as the crisis wanes, they are also being relied upon to provide a space to escape and retreat in comfort. To satisfy this need, many new design trends are emerging. One such trend seeks to cultivate an environment that is comparable to the warmth and coziness  a traveler might have in their home. Lobbies are being reconfigured to resemble a family living room. For example, one leading hotel chain provides an off-lobby common area where four separate video game stations and two video games tables are furnished - all free of charge to play. Another trend is to replace traditional business centers with co-working spaces  where the lines between working and social interaction are often blurred. Finally, recognizing the impact of social media, hotels are designing specific areas to facilitate picture perfect moments (think Instagram). These are just some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
