A long time ago, Phil McCabe must have made a resolution that great would never be good enough. That would certainly explain the tens of millions of dollars he continues to invest in making his hotel, restaurant and other ventures better than the best. At The Inn on Fifth and Club Level Suites in downtown Naples, Florida, a new round of renovations in underway at his landmark 87-room boutique hotel. Scheduled for completion in early 2016, the nearly $2 million project is the latest in a series of major renovations that began with the hotel’s $22 million expansion in 2012. This new project includes several dramatic enhancements to the spa and meeting and public spaces, as well as some operational improvements.
“I believe it’s imperative to make the upgrades and improvements needed to maintain the new standard of luxury we’ve created on Fifth Avenue,” said Phil McCabe, owner of The Inn on Fifth. “This current project addresses a few specific areas that will enhance the overall guest experience for what I believe is arguably one of Naples’ best luxury products.”
The Inn on Fifth’s executive boardroom is being expanded and redesigned to match the hotel’s elegant style, and will incorporate a number of cool techno upgrades like recharging outlets equipped for multiple devices at every table, increased bandwidth for the complimentary Wi-Fi and interactive large screen TVs. Located on the ground floor of the Inn on Fifth, the executive boardroom is expected to become an even more popular option for smaller group meetings and functions for up to 40 people.
The hotel’s pool deck has been redesigned during this renovation, with new landscaping and accents to heighten the tropical vibe of the colorful rooftop retreat. Ideal for sunning, swimming or soothing relaxation, the 3,600-square-foot pool deck also provides a beautiful setting for receptions, retreats or other evening functions under the stars.
Also completed is an extensive remodeling of the award-winning Spa on Fifth, located on the hotel’s third floor. The full-service spa now has all-new interiors, including new paint and flooring, and contemporary design elements matching the sophisticated look of the hotel. The spa’s treatment menu also received an upgrade with several new luxurious options, including the Good As Gold Facial ($145), 60-minute anti-aging treatment that includes a deep pore cleaning, exfoliation and a collagen mask infused with pure 24 karat gold.
Not nearly as sexy but still important to the guest experience, the renovation project includes new elevators, which have been going up and down since October. The hotel’s sales and marketing team is also getting cool new office space, which will allow them to better serve guests.
