The hotel offers 1,360 guestrooms as well as 75,000 square feet of meeting space and a 446-slip private marina. Already the renovation has created a new arrival experience, an updated lobby, remodeled guestrooms and a new fitness center. Next month, the propertys new pool area will reopen with private cabanas, fire pits and a poolside restaurant and bar. Two 40,000-square-foot ballrooms and a full-service spa will also be added to the property by 2014.
