The Hampton Inn Boca Raton on Yamato Road has completed a multi-million dollar renovation project that includes upgrades to all 94 of its guest rooms, lobby, business center and pool.
The project, which hotel officials said cost between $2.8 and $3.2 million to complete, started in August. The hotel plans to hold a grand re-opening ceremony today. Local business leaders and tourism officials are expected to be in attendance.
Hotel officials said renovations to the rooms included everything from the carpet to the mattresses. Rooms with two double mattresses were upgraded to queens.
The hotel, originally built in 1996, ranks 2nd of 27 hotels in Boca Raton on Trip Advisor. As a perk for its guests, the hotel provides day passes to the neighboring Lifetime Fitness.
The renovation comes amid a surge in the number of hotel rooms in the Boca area, tourism officials said.
“This Hampton Inn renovation continues to strengthen our growing Boca Raton hotel product, along with the recently opened Hyatt Place and the future opening of the Mandarin Oriental,” said Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO of Discover The Palm Beaches, the official tourism marketing corporation for Palm Beach County. “Boca Raton now boasts one third of the county’s room inventory with more options for visitors, at a variety of price points and locations, which help us promote our southernmost city as a desirable vacation and meetings destination.”
