Iconic Gulfstream Hotel To Reopen In Lake Worth Beach

Gulfstream Hotel
The iconic Gulfstream Hotel is making a comeback to Lake Worth Beach!

The iconic Gulfstream Hotel, a cornerstone of Lake Worth Beach for nearly a century, is finally set to emerge from its 15-year slumber. Restoration St. Louis, the development group behind the project, has announced a two-phase plan that will see the grand dame of Lake Worth hospitality reborn.

Originally built in 1925, the Gulfstream Hotel has witnessed decades of history. But time hasn’t been kind in recent years. Thankfully, Restoration St. Louis, led by Amrit and Amy Gill, stepped in with a vision to restore the hotel to its former glory.

Gulfstream Hotel: A storied past and bright future

The Gulfstream Hotel first opened its doors in 1925, quickly becoming a popular destination for travelers seeking the charm of Florida’s east coast. Its art deco architecture and prime location overlooking Lake Worth Lagoon cemented its place in the town’s history. Sadly, the hotel closed its doors in 2005, leaving a void in the community.

The renovation of this historic hotel will be split into two phases:

Phase One: A Renewed Landmark

The first phase of the project focuses on the meticulous restoration of the existing hotel building. The goal is to recapture the grandeur of the Gulfstream’s heyday while incorporating modern amenities. This includes reducing the number of rooms from 144 to 90, creating more spacious and luxurious accommodations. The renovation is expected to be completed by the 2024/2025 season, making the Gulfstream Hotel a potential winter haven for visitors.

Phase Two: A Destination Refined

The second phase of the project will see the construction of a new mixed-use building adjacent to the historic hotel. This new addition will offer:

  • 50 additional hotel rooms
  • 83 apartments
  • A rooftop restaurant and bar
  • Spa and salon services
  • Ballroom and meeting spaces
  • Fitness center and business center

The entire project is designed to transform the Gulfstream Hotel into a destination, not just a place to stay. The inclusion of a variety of amenities and a rooftop bar capitalizes on Lake Worth’s growing reputation as a vibrant and walk-able town.

Summary

The reopening of the Gulfstream Hotel is more than just the return of a historic landmark. It represents a significant investment in the future of Lake Worth Beach. The influx of visitors, residents, and businesses will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the local economy. With its rich history and exciting new chapter, the Gulfstream Hotel is poised to become the heart of a revitalized Lake Worth Beach. For more information on this project, click here.
