Dozens of workers have been busy adding more beauty to The Gasparilla Inn & Club over the past several weeks.
Jon Reecher, general manager at The Gasparilla Inn & Club, said the work is part of a three-year project.
“We’re re-siding the front and one side of the Inn, and that should be about 30 percent complete by this summer,” Reecher said. “We anticipate the work will be done by the middle of September, which will give us some time before our reopening on October 6.”
The Gasparilla Inn & Club is a classic “old Florida” resort located on Gasparilla Island on the Gulf of Mexico. It has been serving guests since 1913. The resort offers 142 luxurious accommodations and a host of fun and appealing activities for families, couples and groups that enjoy “Florida as it was meant to be.”
October welcome-back packages and other fall specials are now accesssible online. If you would like to make a reservation for The Gasparilla Inn & Club’s 2016-2017 season, call 800-996-1913 or visit www.the-gasparilla-inn.com.
