The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club completed its latest renovations in November 2013 with the remodeling of its Gulf-front restaurant HB’s on the Gulf, which is the city of Naples’ only beachfront restaurant. An earlier phase of renovations concluded in January 2013, which included the opening of a new Gulf-view ballroom named The Everglades Room, the complete renovation of the remaining guest rooms in the resort’s Florida Wing, and the complete renovation of the resort’s Gulf-side meeting rooms and pre-function space. This $5 million phase of improvements followed $40 million spent by the resort over the previous five years. That multi-phase project included the renovation and remodeling of the other guest rooms and suites, the renovation and expansion of The Sunset Beach Bar & Grill, and the addition (in 2010) of a beautiful new beachfront pool complex (with two new pools).

A recipient of many meeting industry awards, the resort offers a variety of venues for meetings and receptions. The resort features 34,000 square feet of meeting space, most with an impressive view overlooking the championship golf course. Venue options include the new Gulf-view Everglades Room, the 6,283-square-foot River of Grass Ballroom, the 2,457-square-foot Mangrove Ballroom, and such scenic outdoor venues as the Watkins Lawn and the Ocean Lawn.
