The Marriott Marquis & Marina hotel in downtown San Diego announced Tuesday that a $7 million renovation of its boat docking facilities will begin later this year.
The project will include the replacement or repair of wood and concrete structures, power panels, rub rails and cleats throughout the 446-slip marina, which is home to about 450 yachts, according to hotel officials.
The renovation will be completed one dock at a time, and vessels that are displaced during the overhaul will be temporarily relocated to other areas in the marina or to other local docks.
The hotel will also build a new restroom and coin-operated laundry facility for the convenience of marina visitors.
“This project is the most extensive renovation in the 30-year history of the marina,” said Steve Pagano, hotel manager. “We’re confident that this overhaul will result in a marina that our customers and the community at large are extremely proud of.”
Boaters who use the Marriott Marina, which is adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center, can use the hotel’s swimming pools and fitness center, and get a 10 percent discount at the facility’s five restaurants.
