Hotel renovations: Properties in Los Angeles, Dallas and San Francisco get major upgrades


Summer is the busiest time of year for travel. The hotel industry keeps responding with a healthy clip of new hotel renovations. Here are a few notable ones.

Cheeca Lodge and Spa in the Florida Keys

Cheeca Lodge and Spa is a 27-acre independent, luxury resort in Islamorada, the “Sportfishing Capital of the World.”

The hotel had to close down for six months after being damaged by Hurricane Irma.

It’s back now after a $25 million renovation. The main lodge and all 214 guestrooms, suites and bungalows, meeting and event spaces, spa, dining outlets, and palm-fringed grounds have all been touched up.
