EASTON — The Tidewater Inn announced the latest completion of a multi-phase renovation, unveiling a reimagined design that includes the opening of 20 additional guest rooms.
The Tidewater Inn has partnered with Philadelphia-based DAS Architects, as well as Restoration Hardware, on the design of the freshly revitalized guest rooms. The inn also worked exclusively in collaboration with Restoration Hardware on the interior design elements, which feature its furnishings, fixtures and accessories.
Encompassing the second and third floor of the hotel, the premiere guest rooms and suites were introduced in April 2016. At that point, it jumpstarted a series of major renovation projects, including the redesign of the first set of 20 guest rooms, offering modern bathrooms, furniture, carpet, paint and decor.
“At the Tidewater Inn, we hope that (the renovations) bring in more guests. I think that when there is a buzz to improvements to a traditional staple in our community, I think that it causes excitement,” Lauren Catterton, general manager at the Tidewater Inn, said. “We do our best to continue to make improvements. We have been committed to doing that since ownership in 2009, and we hope that it continues to build the business.”
Also unveiled during this phase was the Dover Club, the property’s newest private event venue, ideal for intimate meetings and special events for up to 50 guests. At the same time, the Chesapeake Room, the inn’s corporate and wedding hospitality suite, and the kitchen of Hunters’ Tavern, the hotel’s signature restaurant, underwent renovations and refurbishment.
Additional property enhancements include complete renewal of Tidewater Inn’s first floor in 2017, featuring the lobby, the library and three event venues — the Rose Room, the Oxford Room and the Crystal Room — where the refreshed spaces boast authentic hospitality and comfort, ideal for weekend getaways, special celebrations and business travel alike.
“We have open house every Saturday in the morning, and it’s not uncommon for us to see the same people come back again a few weeks later,” Catterton said.
The Tidewater Inn’s recent completion of newly restored guest rooms features refined furnishings such as oversized club chairs, plush down comforters, pillow top mattresses and spacious bathrooms — including exclusive bath essentials and plush robes.
With a commitment to restoring the Tidewater Inn as the “Pride of the Eastern Shore,” a long-term restoration plan has been in place since Coastal South purchased the historic property in 2009 and will continuously revamp the hotel, delivering a one-of-a-kind leisure experience to each and every guest.
“(Everyone at the Tidewater) is very excited and proud of everything that we are doing,” Catterton said. “The guests are walking through the ballroom with ideas about their events. I also like when our locals come in and see what we did, because it is nice to share with people the latest update. We are just so passionate about what we do, and we commit to being the best Tidewater Inn we can be.”
