New Addition to Downtown Naples Hotels

In addition to the 3rd St hotel plans that were approved recently, the development of another luxury-hotel-project is underway.  It’s location sits across the street from Gulfview Middle School on a 11 & 1/2 acre lot on Eight Street South between First Avenue South and Third Avenue South.   The concept includes a three-story hotel with 25 rooms, but is subject to change.  The initial plans were of large floor plans with hotel rooms up to 2,000 square feet! The plans also show a courtyard with a pool and parking lot plans.  These plans will of course require a final approval by the Naples City Council. The project will only add value and inventory to the available hotel rooms in Naples for visitors to experience the Naples lifestyle.
