On Wednesday, Sept. 22, the Hyatt Regency Coconut Resort in Bonita Springs, Fla., celebrated its 15th anniversary. Brian Kramer, the general manager of the resort, marked the occasion by cutting a commemorative orange ribbon and presenting a speech.
The hotel experienced some difficult times as it opened shortly after the 9/11 attacks in 2001, when hotel occupancy was at low levels nationwide and most travel had stopped. However, the hotel was able to stay afloat given its location and the event of the US military buying out the whole hotel. Since then, “the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point has been an integral part of many people’s lives,” says Kramer.
The hotel now hosts a wide array of events from wedding ceremonies and bar mitzvahs to sweet sixteens and family reunions. “Over the past 15 years we have tried to give back in ways that help benefit us all and especially those in need,” says Kramer.
“This building has had an unbelievable first 15 years, and it is poised to have many more years to come as it heads towards becoming the Grand Dame of Southwest Florida,” says Kramer.
Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa is a resort under Hyatt Regency hotels—a leading global hospitality company—that offers activities and amenities for the perfect business conference to a romantic getaway.
