South Shore Harbour Resort and Conference Center is wearing a new look these days, much to the delight of the Bay Area community, which turned out by the hundreds for its grand opening July 14 when General Manager Roy Green showed off the results of its $10 million-plus makeover.
And, what a great party it was.
Community leaders rubbed shoulders with businessmen, former hotel guests and community volunteers who have put on many events in its ballroom over the years — all smiling as they looked over the handsome newly decorated facility.
Many faces lit up as they walked through the newly designed lobby, into the Lighthouse Bar and Bistro, which is offering dinner both weekdays and weekends, and then glanced down at the beautiful swimming pool and Oasis Bar, where a number of cabanas have been added.
After sampling as array a delicious hors d’oeuvres, guests were invited upstairs, where they marveled at the beauty of the new décor in the Captain’s and Harbour Penthouse Suites and checked out the new carpet and furnishings in the guest rooms, including bathrooms with both a spa and free standing shower, 43-inch TVs and views looking out over Clear Lake.
It was quite a show.
