The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort has announced that it has completed a $2 million renovation of its pre-function spaces and meeting rooms. The resort offers 32,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting spaces. All of the 433 rooms were completely refreshed in 2018.
The $2 million renovation encompassed new carpets, flooring, lighting and millwork, as well as refurbished air-walls and refreshed artwork, along with a reconfiguration of foyer space, which created more pre-function space. The new carpet showcases sea turtles as part of an overall design theme embraced by the property, which lies within one of the most popular nesting sites for sea turtles, with a nesting season that runs from May 1 to October 31. The redesign project was led by the hospitality design studio Wilson Ishihara Design.
According to John Allan, general manager at The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, “As one of South Florida’s premier hotels offering stellar event and meeting space, we are always looking for ways to maintain our status as a coveted destination for attendees and meeting planners. No detail can be overlooked when it comes to the comfort and needs of our guests.”
The beachfront property in Florida is a favorite with both leisure and group business travelers. It is preferred for its oceanfront location and facilities such as the signature Heavenly Spa and Mexican restaurant and bar concept Lona Cocina & Tequileria, besides its expansive event spaces. The resort participates in the Mariott Bonvoy loyalty program.
