Project Description & Challenge

The Marquis Latimer + Halback team has been challenged with the task of transforming a tired mid-century modern motor lodge into a high-end boutique hotel. Positioned at an important gateway into the historic downtown of St. Augustine, the master planning effort highlighted the site’s location along the bayfront and magnificent views of the downtown skyline.


Through a series of intimate garden spaces, cantilevered boardwalks, a new poolscape, re-purposed parking, and stylized guest check-in addition, the design activates the waterfront edge and creates a relaxing, yet high-end, experience for guests. Revenues per room have greatly increased.
