The 27-story tower at the Boca Raton, Fla. property has 244 rooms and suites that range from 500 to 3,180 sq. ft. In addition to a revamped interior, the experience has also been updated. For example, young guests can have snacks delivered by one of the Tower’s robot butlers, Johnnie and Ethel.
The Boca Raton resort and private club has opened the newly revamped Tower, its fifth hotel, following a $65 million transformation, the South Florida Business Journal reported. The 27-story Tower has 244 rooms and suites that range from 500 to 3,180 sq. ft.
“The relaunch of Tower is a significant milestone in the evolution of The Boca Raton. It further defines our property as one of the world’s most distinguished resorts and private clubs, setting a new standard for luxury hospitality,” President and CEO Daniel A. Hostettler said. “It was integral to our long-term strategy to create five distinct hotels, each offering a unique experience.”
New York-based architecture and design firm Rockwell Group led the renovation, the Business Journal reported.
“We redesigned the rooms with a contemporary coastal feel imbued with a sense of casual luxury to flaunt the spectacular 360-degree views,” Rockwell Group partner Shawn Sullivan said. “This meant adding built-in window seating, bleached wood furniture, neutral linen fabrics, fluted feature walls and classic molding.”
Additional venues on the 200-acre property are the Cloister, Yacht Club, Beach Club and Bungalows, the Business Journal reported.
In addition to a revamped interior, the experience has also been updated, the Business Journal reported. For example, young guests can have snacks delivered by one of the Tower’s robot butlers, Johnnie and Ethel, named after the monkey pets of architect Addison Mizner, The Boca Raton’s original owner.
On the second floor is Tower Lounge, a space for hotel guests to relax that offers complimentary morning pastries and coffee, afternoon snacks, and a sundae bar on the weekend, the Business Journal reported. Additional areas include a listening lounge, a classic games area and a book-lending library.
The Boca Raton originally opened in 1926 as The Ritz-Carlton Cloister Inn, the Business Journal reported. It has more than 1,000 guest rooms, making it one of the tri-county region’s largest hotels, behind only the Fontainebleau Miami Beach and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood.
