FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida— A familiar midcentury resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is getting a new lease on life thanks to a property-wide renovation and the new Marina Promenade development. Pier Sixty-Six hotel with its recognizable 66-spire tower was built in the 1960s, but it has been closed since 2019. Tavistock Hotel Collection is redeveloping the property, which will be managed by CoralTree Hospitality when it reopens in 2024.
The 32-acre resort sits on the Intracoastal Waterway and will feature 395 guest rooms, suites and villas as well as 42,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor meeting and event space when it reopens. The resort will feature a multi-level pool area, spa, fitness center, kids club and family entertainment lounge. The Pier Sixty-Six Marina offers 164 deep-water slips for vessels from 40 to 400 feet, and the new Marina Promenade development will feature waterfront shopping and dining options.
The resort will have more than 28,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, the largest of which are two flexible ballrooms – one with 9,400 square feet and another with 7,200 square feet. A third ballroom offers 5,250 square feet and an adjoining 2,000-square-foot event lawn. Other outdoor spaces include two 3,000-square-foot pool decks. Planners will also find several meeting rooms and a boardroom.
The Marina Promenade will provide guests and visitors with more than 33,000 square feet of restaurant, retail and office space at the already open Pier Sixty-Six Marina.
