The Bayside Club Hotel LLC proposes to renovate and expand the existing DoubleTree Hotel by constructing an approximately 70,900 square foot (SF) addition on its northeast side to add 104 new guest rooms to its 197 existing guest rooms. The addition will include new conference and meeting facilities including a 3,200 SF dividable large ballroom, a 1,100 SF junior ball room, two approximately 525 SF meeting rooms, and 270 SF board room. The existing lobby space will be converted into a restaurant/bar with approximately 135 seats.
The proposed addition and renovation will result in a new guest experience. The existing entry lobby will be renovated with new finishes and lighting. The existing reception desk will be reconfigured to provide an additional check-in station. The entry lobby will be extended through the building to the meeting rooms, creating a connection between the existing and new portions of the hotel. The central part of the building will feature a new coffee bar with lounge seating overlooking a new south-facing courtyard space between the existing building and new addition. During nice weather, guests will have use of the courtyard space for casual dining and relaxation.
