Hurricane Michael Update & Resort Improvements
While Hurricane Michael was an incredibly destructive storm to Panama City and much of the surrounding area, Panama City Beach and the Holiday Inn Resort were spared most of Michael’s wrath. While there was some damage done to the Resort, we have decided to make the best out of a difficult situation and pursue some much needed renovations to the resort. Remember the old phrase, “When life hands you lemons…you make lemonade!”
After we were told our beautiful building had some significant damage that needed to be addressed, we knew we had some decisions to make. After numerous discussions and planning meetings, we have made the difficult decision not accept any new reservations for the Resort until Mid-May. We are actively taking reservations for Mid-May and beyond. We have started a multi-phase rejuvenation and remodeling project that will greatly enhance the experience you have always had by staying at the resort. We will also make sure we keep everyone informed as availability opens back up. We are very excited to share the details of Phase 1 with you all.
During Phase 1 which began December 2018 and will be completed by mid-May 2019. We started by retexturing the exterior stucco all over the building. The heavy stucco of the past will be transformed into a fine layer of thin stucco giving the resort a more modern look. This includes the whole façade front, back and all sides our beautiful Resort. The stucco heading into the tunnel that leads to the parking lot, common areas by the elevators as well as walkways leading to the rooms will also be updated. This is quite the undertaking due to the size and scope of our property.
The View Restaurant
We are excited to announce the View restaurant will be receiving all new flooring tile as well as a brand-new breakfast buffet, beautifully designed and streamlined. This rejuvenation of your favorite restaurant for breakfast and dinner will be like eating your dessert first every day!
We are adding exquisite tile in the lobby and common areas as well as new furniture. There will be more exciting things to come in Phase 2 for our beautiful lobby.
During Phase 1 floors 15-8 will be upgraded and redecorated.
Current plans involve remodeling the bathrooms with a backlit mirror over a new sink with beautiful fixtures, a new large tiled shower with thick glass sliding door, new toilet, painted accent walls, and quartz stone topped furniture.
Common Area Improvements
The tile in the common areas by the elevators and leading to all the rooms will look dramatically different.
We look forward to sharing more with you as our remodel progresses. Make sure that you follow us on your favorite Social Network so you can get the latest info on all of our improvements!
