Among the upgrades are the basics such as new furniture and amenities like WiFi. The bigger project centers updating the décor and making it appear as if it is comparable to resorts from the post-World War II era. There is also a nine-hole golf course near the hotel, a restaurant and a bar that harkens back to its unique lineage from the past. The couple that owns the property and is overseeing its renovation is prominent in the area, owning multiple businesses. Plans include a shopping area, fitness studios, a brewery and business offices.
