Historic Seaview Dolce Hotel Launches Multi-Million Dollar Renovation
Classic New Jersey landmark to renovate 296 guestrooms, event spaces and dining outlets;
$17 Million transformation to be completed for summer 2019
GALLOWAY, NJ (October 16, 2018): Seaview, a Dolce Hotel – part of the renowned meetings and events brand Dolce Hotels and Resorts by Wyndham – today announced plans for a transformational renovation updating its 296 guest rooms, event spaces and dining outlets with modern design inspired by the hotel’s celebrated Jersey Shore history.
The renovation comes on the heels of new ownership for the hotel, which was sold in August 2018 to Dr. Kiran Patel, Florida philanthropist and Wyndham partner on landmark hotels including the striking Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach in Florida and prominent Dolce Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado.
The $17 million renovation will include updates to all 296 guestrooms and suites; refreshed meeting spaces, lobby and public areas; renovations to the outdoor pool; and new dining options including a new original restaurant concept within the hotel’s famed Oval Room. To sustain the massive renovation, guest rooms and meeting spaces will be closed to visitors for the winter months, reopening starting in March 2019. The hotel’s golf course remains open.
“Seaview is a beloved icon of the Jersey Shore community with a rich local history shared by many guests who have spent generations vacationing here – and even team members who spend their entire careers, some of them across several generations of families, working with us at the resort,” said General Manager Bob Nelson. “This transformation is the dawn of a new era for Seaview and will provide our guests a modern east coast destination resort and, true to the Dolce brand, a harbor for inspired meetings and events – all while still embracing the past that shaped our celebrated story.”
Founded in 1914, the historic Seaview Hotel has hosted famed names such as Presidents Warren G. Harding and Dwight D. Eisenhower, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Grace Kelly – who in 1946, celebrated her sweet 16 party in the resort’s legendary Oval Room. This history inspires the hotel’s redesign, which includes a hint of art deco nostalgia – a playful nod to Atlantic City’s heyday – paired with cool, coastal blues and modern, comfortable furnishings.
The coastal motif carries into the hotel’s 27,000 sq. ft. of event space, which caters to a variety of social events with customizable menus and packages for weddings with both indoor and outdoor ceremony venues, bar and bat mitzvahs, family reunions and fundraisers.
As part of the Dolce brand, Seaview will also offer state-of-the-art meeting facilities across 21 meeting rooms designed specifically to stimulate productivity and creative thinking. The hotel offers Dolce’s signature Nourishment Hubs, rethinking the cliché afternoon coffee break with fresh, energizing refreshments throughout the day as well as its “Thoughtful Foods for Thoughtful Minds” program offering menus with wholesome ingredients and convenient, flexible options.
