Hotel Updates

The Pearl Hotel’s 55 guest rooms will be getting a full refresh, with work planned to begin in November of 2021 and finish spring 2022. The work will be carried out floor-by-floor to limit any inconvenience, and in most cases guests will not notice the activity taking place. The planned room refresh is being overseen by Duncan & Miller Design of Dallas, Texas, the firm that created the original plans for The Pearl Hotel.  More recently, they renovated the Havana Beach Lounge, part of the Pearl’s signature restaurant, Havana Beach Bar & Grill. Initial plans call for new flooring and brighter, more modern interior design choices to create a lighter and more tropical atmosphere. 

Once completeld, guests will be able to enjoy the following in our newly refreshed rooms:

  • Updated color palette of orange, blues and emerald, will bring the colors of our coastal setting directly into the hotel.
  • New flooring and area rugs paired with new custom window treatments will bring a coastal elegance and easy livability to each room.
  • A beautiful marble-topped café table and custom chairs will be added to each room, providing the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast or dinner from Havana Beach, or catch up on a bit of work.
  • Individual Wi-Fi access points in each room, along with state-of-the-art in-room video and audio options will make each guest space even more functional.
