The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village will soon be able to support even more group business with the opening of a new $15 million, 35,000-sf conference center—scheduled to debut in late 2017.
The Southwest Florida resort’s new conference center will feature a 13,000-sf Grand Ballroom that will add to the resort’s existing 15,000 sf of space. Additionally, groups will be able to gather in the 4,754-sf prefunction space and expansive 1,728-sf terrace that overlooks the Caloosahatchee River estuary.
“The new conference center is a strategic addition to our resort and the Southwest Florida community as it will expand the functionality and flexibility of our existing meetings and events space,” says Eric Ashton, general manager at the property.
The resort also plans to convert 30, two-bedroom suites into traditional and one-bedroom units that can better accommodate attendees. The new combination of one- and two-bedded suites will add 30 rooms to the resort’s room count, creating a total of 263 guest rooms for groups.
With a waterfront location on Tarpon Point Marina and on the banks of Caloosahatchee River, the resort offers groups several nature activities. These range from kayaking the more than 400 miles of nearby navigable waterways to renting a sightseeing charter or 45-foot catamaran to taking a complementary water taxi to nearby Fort Myers Beach.
