"We are extremely proud of this massive renovation and believe it epitomizes the ho- tel's legendary stature on Clearwater Beach," Sanchez said "Even more importantly, this transformation will greatly enhance the expe- rience for all our valued guests." As part of the renovation project, the 35,000 square feet of meeting space on the lobby level of the hotel received a complete transformation. All meeting rooms and com- mon areas received new carpet, wall cover- ings, lighting and artwork. The exterior of the hotel, including balconies and railings, was newly painted and the interior has been upgraded with new solid wood flooring and newly carpeted hallways. Each of the 418 guest rooms and suites were fully renovated to include new air condotioning units, wall coverings, new carpeting and a tile foyer. Additionally, each guest room had a complete bathroom make-over. New options for food and beverage that were added during the remodel include the Spotted Donkey, a Mexican Cantina and Te- quila Bar. Upgrades to existing dining outlets included new wood flooring and a built-in buffet at the Carambola Restaurant. Coasters Lounge was expanded to include a U-shaped bar with 30 stools, communal tables and ca- sual seating with views of the Gulf of Mexico. A new onsite amenity, the 2,500-square- foot Hibiscus Spa, opened last summer and a new fitness center overlooks the neighboring Pier 60 Park. The two onsite pools and surrounding areas were also completely renovated. ► W h e r e T e x a s s i z e M e e T s s t L o o p s o u t h | s o n e s ta . c o m / R o ya L h o u s t o n Contact our sales team now to learn more about special booking incentives for 2018 group business! 713.850.2800 | HOUSTON.SALES@SONESTA.COM • Premier location in the Galleria Uptown business district • 50,000 square feet of function space including 23 meeting and breakout rooms • AAA Four Diamond rated hotel with 485 guest rooms and suites • Acclaimed event staff and Food is Art catering options • 2 on-site dining venues, coffee café, fitness center and pool • Steps from world-class destinations including The Galleria and River Oaks District Spotted Donkey Cantina at the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa
