The Coeur d’Alene Resort will reopen its first floor to the public at noon today after a two-month remodel. The 35,000-square foot makeover includes new décor for the lobby and Dockside Restaurant, a larger fitness area and an expansion of Whispers, a bar and lounge. “We want people to feel like it’s a brand new place,” said architect Guy Dreier of Palm Desert, Calif. The remodel includes larger skylights to increase natural light, a 22,000-gallon Koi aquarium with imported fish from Japan, indoor plants, Italian tile and Brazilian granite. Conventions and meetings makes up about half of the business for the resort hotel on Lake Coeur d’Alene/Becky Kramer, SR. More here.
