MARCO ISLAND, Fla. -- More than a year after an electrical fire forced the Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort to close, the property is now welcoming guests again.

According to Olshan Properties, the 310-room resort underwent an extensive $60 million renovation to both interior and exterior facilities.

The 33-year-old resort was forced to close in July 2017 following an electrical fire on the 9th floor.  Initially, the property was expected to fully reopen in December 2017, but several delays pushed the date back until November 2018.

“The entire team here at the Hilton Marco Island and myself are incredibly excited to unveil our newly reimagined resort to the local community, holiday makers and business groups alike," says Olshan Properties’ Head of Hospitality, Ernie Catanzaro.
