CoCo Key to Become DoubleTree
Last week the signing of a franchise license agreement with Hilton Worldwide for a new DoubleTree by Hilton was announced for the the CoCo Key Hotel & Water Resort.
Sage Hospitality and The Lightstone Group have announced the CoCo Key Hotel Water Resort resort will become the DoubleTree by Hilton Boston-North Shore in late summer 2012, following more than $10 million in renovations.
Located at 50 Ferncroft Road, the hotelwide renovation will include design and service upgrades throughout the hotel’s 366 guest rooms and suites, as well as improvements to the 30,000 square feet of meeting space and public spaces.
Alongside the more than 30,000 square feet of flexible meeting space for functions and weddings, the hotel’s 10,000 square foot Grand Ballroom is the largest ballroom outside of downtown Boston, accommodating up to 1,400 people.
But, with the renovations and ownership changes, will the water park be sticking around?
According to Sage Hospitality, yes. And, to better serve guests, there will be a separate check-in area for overnight water park guests. In addition, there will also be specially appointed “cabana” suites featuring family friendly accommodations and location to the park.
"This hotel has long had strong ties to the local North Shore community,” said David Lichtenstein, chairman of the Lightstone Group, in a press release. “We are confident that our loyal guests will be very impressed by this new hotel development with DoubleTree by Hilton and the extensive upgrades planned for the property.”
