FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. – Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa unveiled renovations to its 650 guestrooms that have incorporated improved furnishings, fixtures, flooring and updated décor, it was announced Sept. 28.
In addition to the refreshed guestroom look, the newly renovated lobby space now sports artwork, indoor greenery, ocean views, ample seating and neutral toned décor.
Earlier this year, 3030 Ocean restaurant completed an extensive three-month refurbishment featuring an enhanced dining experience, modernized colour palette, soft lighting, modern artwork and tempered glass walls.
“Following the current room renovation, guests arriving at Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach will enjoy newly elevated accommodations providing a more upscale beachfront experience. It was important for us to capture the spirit of the expansive beach our property is located on, while also offering guests additional modern amenities that will inspire them,” says General Manager Karen Chastain.
The inspiration scheme, spearheaded by Miami-based EoA Inc., emerged from the New River in South Florida, which according to a legend by the Seminole Indian Tribe of Florida was an underground river that appeared after a night of strong winds. The river originates in the Everglades and flows east, passing through Fort Lauderdale and then entering the Atlantic Ocean. The design inspiration is based on the movement of the river leading towards the ocean, which is captured in the undulating detailing of the headboards in guestrooms.
The new guestrooms feature neutral linen fabrics, accents and textures complemented by striated carpets, as well as sand-coloured lounge chairs, nightstands, ottomans, lamps, sleeper chairs and new balcony furniture.
Spacious desk spaces are accented with a quartz finish. The bathroom design incorporates sliding doors to maximize space, low shower bar, and a showerhead that is placed on the wall opposite the handles.
Other amenities at the resort include a fitness centre, 22,000-square-foot spa and more than 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space.
