Tapestry Collection by Hilton
FORT MYERS, FLORIDA
Luxury, Full-Service Conversion.
Our team was hired to transform downtown Fort Myers' Hotel Indigo into a Tapestry Collection, Hilton's newest upscale brand, within 6 months. The top-to-bottom conversion of the 8-story property will feature 72 unique guest suites, a fully renovated rooftop pool & bar, a new commercial kitchen, and a lobby bar for expanded food and beverage offering. We're applying a phasing technique during construction so different floors are always open to guests, allowing the full-service hotel to remain fully operational throughout renovation.
Hampton Inn by Hilton
FORT MYERS, FLORIDA
Downtown Infill Development from the Ground Up.
This 4-story, 65,000 sf ground up Hilton build is located on downtown Fort Myers' traffic artery. It will feature 118 rooms, an outdoor pool and patio, a flexible boardroom, and a fitness center. Situated on a two-acre lot, the building will be an infill lot development that will take 1 year to complete before it opens. Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities have been applied to the entire design, meaning that virtual reality (VR) and 3D LiDAR scanning will be used to review designs throughout construction.
Tru by Hilton
First in the Region.
Our team has been hired to construct the first Tru by Hilton in the region. Located in Bradenton by I-75 and SR-70, the newest Hilton model is a ground-up build that will feature 80+ rooms. Hilton's newest brand is designed to meet the demands of the midscale market with forward-thinking amenities, and we're excited to bring this brand to life for Divine Hospitality in collaboration with AP Architecture. The build will also be an infill lot development, an approach that aims to maximize ecological benefits and reduce development pressure on surrounding areas.
