Fort Lauderdale's famed Bahia Mar Beach Resort & Yachting Center is undergoing renovations and will be renamed the Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach, a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel.

The hotel boasts a 250-slip marina and is home to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Renovations include a makeover of the property’s 296 guest rooms and suites, as well as a revival of the Commodore Ballroom. The makeover is scheduled for completion this fall.

“Fort Lauderdale continues to show positive, long-term potential as the city and its tourism partners continue to cultivate an outstanding leisure, business and convention destination. The Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach, a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, will only build further on their fine tradition in the community by providing high standards of service and creating rewarding experiences for travelers from cities around the world,” Rob Palleschi, global head of the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, said in a statement.
