Ft. Lauderdale’s Bahia Mar To Become DoubleTree

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL—The Bahia Mar Beach Resort & Yachting Center here will be renamed the Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach – A DoubleTree by Hilton following a renovation of the property’s 296 guestrooms and suites, as well as the signature Commodore Ballroom.

The transition is expected by years end.

Under the direction of interior designer Jane Dillon, the resort’s accommodations will undergo a significant refurbishment to brighten the ambiance and update amenities. New rooms will offer stylish décor, with most complemented by floor-to-ceiling water views. Guests will enjoy a clean, contemporary style reflective of the friendly and casual South Florida vibe with splashes of citrus accenting a soothing color neutral-sand color palette. Additional highlights include new furnishings, ocean-inspired artwork, patterned carpeting and white linens, all coming together to create a distinct sense of place. New modern amenities will include 40-inch, flat screen LCD televisions, mini-refrigerators and microwaves.

The resort’s 8,200 square-foot Commodore Ballroom also will be refreshed.

The hotel is located along the Fort Lauderdale Beach and the Intercoastal Waterway, offering direct beach access via a skywalk. It features tennis facilities, fitness center, swimming pool and water sports.  In addition, the resort has a 250-slip marina, and is home to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
