October 03, 2016 // Franchising.com // BOCA RATON, Fla. and McLEAN, Va. - Waterstone Resort & Marina - an upscale, art deco, waterfront resort hotel at the Lake Boca Inlet - is the latest addition to Curio - A Collection by Hilton™, a global set of distinctive upscale and luxury hotels hand-picked for travelers seeking local discovery and authentic experiences.
The 11-story boutique hotel’s 139 guest rooms and suites offer private balconies with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Lake Boca or the Intracoastal Waterway. The breezy, sophisticated design is reflected throughout the property, brought to life through custom-made furnishings and fabrics, as well as dazzling artwork - especially the one-of-a-kind blend of water and stone gracing the walls of the contemporary lobby that gives the property its name.
A particularly distinguishing feature is the Waterstone Resort & Marina’s nearly 200 feet of boat docking facilities and promenade, the centerpiece for watersports, boating and sailing options as well as enchanting waterfront dining.
“With its idyllic location, stunning décor and easy access to all that Boca has to offer, Waterstone Resort & Marina, Curio Collection by Hilton reflects and enhances the best of its beautiful surroundings,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio - A Collection by Hilton. “It exemplifies the distinctive character and local flavor we strive to provide our independent-minded guests, and is a welcomed - and extraordinary - addition to the rapidly-growing Curio collection.”
A complimentary, private shuttle to the beach or a short walk to world-class shopping, dining and nightlife immerses guests in the glitz and glamour of Boca Raton, ideally situated between Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale.
First-rate dining abounds at the hotel’s Boca Landing and Waterstone Rum Bar & Grill. The former - overseen by renowned Executive Chef Matt Mixon - offers guests upscale dining with French and Italian influences in an art-inspired, water-centric atmosphere. Diners may enjoy seafood - such as Line Caught Florida Grouper - while enjoying unprecedented, 180-degree views of Lake Boca and the Intracoastal Waterway.
The poolside Waterstone Rum Bar & Grill provides casual outdoor dining with plenty of Florida flair, with an all-day menu of light bites, sandwiches, burgers, wraps and a seafood raw bar. Fresh-pressed juices, specialty cocktails, sophisticated desserts and a whimsical children’s menu are also available. Room service is available from 6 a.m. until 11 p.m.
Those seeking to burn off calories can take a refreshing dip in the outdoor pool, rent a bicycle for a jaunt into town or enjoy scuba diving, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking or other activities offered from the marina. A state-of-the-art, 24-hour fitness center makes exercise easier, thanks to charming views of the pool and waterfront.
Each casually elegant guest room has a king size bed or two queen beds, as well as an expansive work desk and other features designed for today’s savvy travelers. One-bedroom suites with a parlor provide additional space for working and relaxing.
For small business meetings to glamorous wedding receptions that can accommodate up to 200 guests, Waterstone Resort & Marina is a decadent choice for any special occasion. Whether a Penthouse Level ballroom with floor-to-ceiling views of the water on all sides of the resort or the waterfront Promenade Lawn’s manicured gardens, the facility offers 5,950 square feet of versatile space ideal for intimate weddings, al fresco cocktail hours or energizing executive retreats.
“Travelers to Boca Raton are eager for experiences that enable them to appreciate the unique zest and natural beauty of this amazing locale, and Waterstone Resort & Marina delivers on that promise,” said Jim Haughney, general manager, Waterstone Resort & Marina, Curio Collection by Hilton. “We look forward to helping guests enjoy the amazing and authentic experiences that intrigue travelers to stay at Curio collection properties.”
