LAKELAND, Fla. - 329 E. Main, LLC, owners of the historic hotel at 329 East Main Street, Lakeland, Fla., announced the Terrace Hotel Lakeland will join Tapestry Collection by Hilton in April 2021. The property conversion consists of new branding as well as renovations to guest rooms, public spaces, and on-site fine dining restaurant The Terrace Grille. The 88-room hotel will be operated by Naples Hotel Group with construction led by Pinkerton & Laws and interior design by Sims Patrick Studio. The property is currently welcoming guests.
“The entire ownership team is happy to see through the completion of Edie and David Henderson’s vision for the remodel of this grand historic hotel. We are proud to reinvigorate one of Lakeland’s historic downtown destinations for the community to experience,” said Todd Baylis, manager, 329 East Main, LLC. “We are excited to partner with Hilton and the Tapestry Collection brand to bring a fresh and upscale lodging option to the City of Lakeland.”
The hotel opened its doors in 1924 as Lakeland's first grand hotel and high-rise building, and Florida’s first year-round hotel due to the invention of air conditioning. The building was purchased and restored in 1999 after sitting empty for about a decade. The formerly named Terrace Hotel is now entering the next chapter of its illustrious history with its new ownership and management.
The design inspiration for the Terrace Hotel Lakeland's renovation takes cues from its flamboyant 1920s art deco history, the elegant lines of the royal family's swan descendants, as well as the lush gardens and vibrant hues of citrus groves nearby. All spaces will feature new finishes, local artworks, and a mix of eclectic furnishings tying together the local flora, fauna, and wildlife's color palette and textures. This elegant urban oasis will once again glorify its role as the historical treasure of Lakeland.
Upon entering the guestrooms and suites of The Terrace Hotel Lakeland, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, guests are greeted with old-world glamour that is classic and timeless. The hotel offers a variety of guest rooms and spacious suites with views of neighboring Lake Mirror. All guest rooms offer HDTVs, coffee makers, complimentary bathroom amenities, and Wi-Fi. The design brings the outside in, as guests experience the blooming landscape's elegance and calming colors of the surrounding lakes. Unique patterns throughout the rooms and baths give an unexpected twist to the swan, whose presence can be seen throughout the property and Lakeland.
The Terrace Grille Restaurant, recognized for its iconic floor-to-ceiling arched windows and dramatic pecky cypress patterned ceilings, continues to be one of Lakeland's top venues for celebrations. The hotel’s original pecky cypress ceilings, light fixtures, and black and white patterned flooring have all been restored and incorporated with the new design. The Grille's newness will feature furnishings, a bar layout with an expo window peeking into the kitchen, and lounge seating in its Lake Mirror Room which is also available for private events. The Grille is open for all mealtimes, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch.
The Terrace Hotel Lakeland is the city’s premier hotel venue space where people can celebrate life's happy milestones, join together with their family, or establish business goals. The on-site catering and sales team is now booking for private events in its renovated Lake Mirror Room or Cypress Ballroom for up to 100 guests.
