With a view of the Chesapeake Bay, the Virginia Beach Resort Hotel & Conference Center on Shore Drive is getting a major facelift.
A Richmond-based real estate management firm is purchasing the hotel for $19 million from its owners, who include the Shiflet family, and will rebrand it as Delta Hotel by Marriott. The company plans to spend $25 million on renovations, according to the city.
The hotel sits on 3.6 acres and has 295 suites.
While this Virginia Beach project is quite different, one has to wonder if there isn’t an investor eyeing the Bayshore property in Cape Charles with similar intent?
Recently, a reader submitted a similar theory about the Hyatt Resort in Cambridge, Maryland. Just for speculation, he asked, could a maritime resort like the one on the Choptank River be built here in Cape Charles? An interesting idea…here are some photos of the Hyatt Resort in Cambridge.
