Marcus Hotels Acquires Interest in and Assumes Management of The Hotel Zamora in St. Pete Beach, FL
September 30, 2014 9:50am
The Hotel Zamora is the first new hotel to open in St. Pete Beach in more than 20 years. Influenced by the architecture, design and cuisine of the Zamora region in Spain, the hotel offers 72 luxurious guest rooms incorporating 22 two-bedroom suites and 9,000 square feet of meeting space, including one of the most scenic rooftops in Florida. Opened in June 2014, the stunning boutique luxury property overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico in the heart of one of TripAdvisor’s “Top Ten Beach Destinations in the United States.” Its striking white-washed Romanesque façade with curved windows and balconies sets the stage for a fashionable environment that includes the stylish Castile Restaurant under the direction of acclaimed chef Ted Dorsey, serving contemporary cuisine influenced by the culinary traditions of Spain, Mexico and the Mediterranean, and an elegant and spacious rooftop bar with beautiful ocean views.
“We are thrilled to assume management of The Hotel Zamora and to bring our more than 50 years of lodging expertise to this truly outstanding property. We look forward to helping The Hotel Zamora build a reputation as an exceptional waterfront destination hotel known for its excellent hospitality and attentive service,” said Thomas F. Kissinger, interim president, Marcus Hotels & Resorts and senior executive vice president of The Marcus Corporation.
“We are very pleased to have Marcus Hotels & Resorts join us as a minority investor and manager of The Hotel Zamora and Castile Restaurant,” said Henry Suarez, managing partner of Zamora Hospitality Group, LLC. “The company’s extensive experience in managing a diverse portfolio of hotels and resorts will be an asset to us as we introduce the hotel to business and leisure travelers seeking an exceptional experience in a very special setting.”
Dr. Devanand Mangar, one of the owners of Zamora Hospitality Group, added, “With Marcus Hotels’ guidance and strategic vision, we feel The Hotel Zamora and Castile Restaurant will become a brand that will be known and loved worldwide.”
Recently named one of nine great new U.S. beach hotels by CNN, The Hotel Zamora offers fine leather furnishings, arch-framed balconies, Intracoastal docks and a bay-front swimming pool that cater to savvy and stylish Florida travelers seeking a luxury experience. Guest rooms feature walk-in spa showers, soaking bathtubs and plush Terry bathrobes, creating a spa-like retreat. For more information, please visit: www.thehotelzamora.com.
