FORT MYERS, Fla. – The 243-room waterfront Luminary Hotel & Co., officially opened its doors September 23, making its long-awaited debut in downtown Fort Myers, Fla.
Opening in conjunction with the new 12-story hotel are three of its featured food and beverage outlets—Ella’s Ella Mae’s Diner, Dean Street Coffee, and the Lobby Bar. Silver King Ocean Brasserie, and Beacon Social Drinkery rooftop lounge, will both open later this fall.
Other key features include The Workshop, an innovative culinary laboratory; an indoor and outdoor fitness facility; and a spacious pool area on the fourth floor, with an event deck overlooking the Caloosahatchee River.
Luminary Hotel & Co., is the fifth Mainsail Lodging & Development property in the Autograph Collection of Marriott International, and the first in the Fort Myers-Naples area.
“It has been quite an adventure to get here, but thanks to the hard work and determination of the Mainsail team, and tremendous community support, the beautiful new Luminary Hotel is officially open and shining brightly in Fort Myers,” said hotel general manager Bob Megazzini. “It’s an exciting time and there’s much more to come, with the opening of our signature restaurant and rooftop lounge later this fall, and other outstanding additions to enhance the city’s downtown dining, shopping, and entertainment scene.”
Guestroom amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, artisan pantries with gourmet coffee service, and bedding dressed with duvets and fluffy pillows.
Luminary offers 10,000 square feet of adaptable indoor and outdoor function space ideal for a variety of events and meetings. The hotel is also directly adjacent to the neighboring Caloosa Sound Convention Center, now open and offering 40,000 square feet of function space.
