Marco Islands Hotel is expected to reopen at some point soon as a visitor attraction.
A hotel official said on Thursday the hotel, built in 1912 by a British businessman, will be open for tourists to use.
“We are happy to welcome the arrival of a new wave of visitors who will come to the hotel to enjoy its many features and special facilities,” said Marco island hotel director Peter Brouwer.
“But the hotel will still be open to the public.”
A few months ago, Marco’s original owner, the Duke of York, left it to be demolished and the property sold to developer David Tully, who is now trying to build a hotel on the island.
The Duke of Warwick, whose family owns Marco, has repeatedly said that he does not want his estate demolished, but he is willing to allow the hotel and its staff to stay.
“I think that people have the right to have a hotel in Marco,” Mr Brouder said.
“They have to be treated with respect and we want to be very careful that we treat them with the respect that we would treat any other tourist.”
Mr Brouwdower said the hotel would be a tourist attraction for tourists from all over the world.
“It will be a unique place to come and enjoy the sights and the people,” he said.
The hotel is located on the west coast of the island of Marco and offers a host of amenities, including a cafe and outdoor pool, a swimming pool and a sauna.
