Remember when we were told the “upscale Curio Collection brand” was going to manage the Gulfstream Hotel?

Read more about that below. But first, here’s interesting news from reporter Samantha Tatro about the historic Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego:

“The iconic Hotel del Coronado, with its
red turrets, is one of the most recognizable
hotels in the world.”

     The 129-year-old historic property, known by many across the world, will join the Hilton's smaller Curio Collection, an ensemble of upscale properties, according to Curio’s website.
     The Hotel Del is expected to become a part of the Curio portfolio by the end of July, according to a statement from The Del. The Curio Collection includes dozens of four- and five-star independent hotels across the world, like the Boulders Resort in Arizona. Three of those are in California, including the Hotel La Jolla.

Remember this news from reporter Dan Weil at The Real Deal in June of last year titled:

“Developers flock to middle cities of
Palm Beach County”

One of the “Notable projects” listed by the reporter was this one, datelined June 7th, 2016:

     A $70 million renovation of Lake Worth’s historic Gulfstream Hotel by Delray Beach-based developer Hudson Holdings. It plans to restore the crumbling [sic], six-story hotel, built in 1925, shrinking its room count to 87 from 106. And the developer intends to wipe away two nearby buildings so it can erect a five-story, 87-room annex to the hotel instead. Both buildings will carry Hilton’s upscale Curio Collection brand.
     “We started working three years ago in Boynton Beach and Lake Worth, and there’s a lot of value, especially in Lake Worth,” Steve Michael, co-founder of Delray Beach-based Hudson Holdings, told TRD.

“. . . there’s a lot of value, especially
in Lake Worth”
