The highly anticipated 243-room waterfront Luminary Hotel & Co.officially opened its doors today (September 23, 2020), making its long-awaited debut in downtown Fort Myers, Florida.
Luminary Hotel & Co. is the fifth Mainsail Lodging & Development property in the prestigious Autograph Collection® of Marriott International, and the first Autograph hotel in the Fort Myers-Naples area.
Opening in conjunction with the new 12-story Luminary Hotel are three of its featured food and beverage outlets – Ella Mae’s Diner, 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, an innovative culinary laboratory; an indoor and outdoor fitness facility; and a spacious pool area on the fourth floor, with an event deck overlooking the Caloosahatchee River.
“It has been quite an adventure to get here, but thanks to the hard work and determination of the Mainsail team, and tremendous community support, the beautiful new Luminary Hotel is officially open and shining brightly in Fort Myers,” said Bob Megazzini, General Manager. “It’s an exciting time and there’s much more to come, with the opening of our signature restaurant and rooftop lounge later this fall, and other outstanding additions to enhance the city’s downtown dining, shopping, and entertainment scene.”
The new boutique hotel’s guest rooms and suites are fresh and modern in design, with warm, natural tones and clean lines. Guest room amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, artisan pantries with gourmet coffee service, and luxurious bedding dressed with crisp duvets and fluffy pillows, while upscale bath products add a touch of indulgence.
