The 243-room waterfront Luminary Hotel has opened in downtown Fort Myers.
The hotel is adjacent to the Caloosa Sound Convention Center, which was recently remodeled and expanded to 40,000 square
feet. Built by Mainsail Lodging & Development, it is the first
hotel in the Fort Myers-Naples area to be part of the Autograph
Collection of Marriott International.
Three of the 12-story hotel's food and beverage outlets are open: Ella Mae's Diner, Dean Street Coffee and the Lobby Bar. The hotel's signature Silver King Ocean Brasserie and Beacon Social Drinkery rooftop lounge will both open later this fall.
Other key features include the Workshop, an innovative culinary laboratory; an indoor and outdoor fitness facility; and a spacious pool area on the fourth floor, with an event deck overlooking the Caloosahatchee River.
The hotel also offers convenient access to the new riverfront Oxbow Bar & Grill located on the river and scheduled to open in March.
A park across the street is being redone, and a new bandshell will host music programmed in part by the hotel.
