The 243-room waterfront Luminary Hotel & Co. officially opened its doors in downtown Fort Myers, Florida. Opening in conjunction with the new 12-story Luminary Hotel are three of its featured food and beverage outlets: Ella Mae’s Diner (shown), Dean Street Coffee, and the Lobby Bar. The hotel’s signature Silver King Ocean Brasserie, and Beacon Social Drinkery rooftop lounge, will both open later this fall.
Other key features include the Workshop, a culinary laboratory; an indoor and outdoor fitness facility; and a 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 Autograph hotel in the Fort Myers-Naples area. Luminaries who left a lasting impression on Fort Myers are an inspiration for the hotel, and many are captured in fanciful illustrations throughout the hotel and its branding that have been brought to life by local artist Joshua Noom.
