Pier Sixty-Six Hotel To Reopen Monday After Hurricane Irma Damage; Will Go Solo Without Hyatt


A new chapter is unfolding at Fort Lauderdale’s iconic Pier 66 hotel along the Intracoastal Waterway.

Next Monday, the landmark at 2301 SE 17th St., will reopen after Hurricane Irma damaged its 17-story tower building and forced the resort to close for more than a month.

The hotel, formerly operated as a Hyatt Regency, will also debut a new name — Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina — as it becomes an independent property under the ownership of Tavistock Development Co.

The longtime Hyatt moniker was removed this week from the top of the hotel’s signature tower, where it resided for decades.
