Roundup: Another Big Day for Florida

b ocean resort fort lauderdale

More big news today in the meetings and events industry out of Florida. The B Ocean Resort in Fort Lauderdale has taken the wraps off a top-to-bottom renovation project that has enhanced and expanded the resort’s event space. 

The resort’s 14,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space now extends to the second floor, where the Point Room offers floor-to-ceiling windows with an attached outdoor beachfront terrace. B Ocean's private beach, pool decks and first level ballroom can also be used for large group events, meetings or weddings. The project also updated the resort’s 484 guest rooms in a “coastal chic” design. 

The move follows two major start of year hotel openings in Florida: the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort, which is open now, and the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach, which opens January 24. And, of course, keep keeping an eye on the ongoing expansion to the Miami Beach Convention Center

Farther north, Marriott International just opened the first hotel for its Millennial-focused Aloft brand in Long Island City, Queens. The new Aloft Long Island City - Manhattan View has 1,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, a rooftop terrace offering views of the New York City skyline, and 176 loft-style guest rooms. Though it is in Queens, the hotel is a short subway ride from many major Manhattan attractions, including Times Square, the Empire State Building, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
