Florida Factoid Friday

The largest occupied wooden structure in the world is the Belleview Biltmore Resort, built in 1897, in Clearwater.

Well, it's actually unoccupied at the moment. On 1 June, it closed its doors to the public to begin a $100,000,000+ restoration and renovation. It is supposed to reopen sometime in 2012. The Golf Club is still open.

Thanks for the great news on the Belleview Biltmore - one of my most favorite Florida hotels. We spent a delightful weekend there back during the fight to save it and I'm glad to hear it's getting the attention it deserves.

I might go to the auction. Hotel fire-sales often rock!
