This 230-room resort hotel is built on the last available beachfront site in Clearwater Beach, FL, in full view of the Gulf of Mexico. The harmonious design integrates blue glass tints, gray stone, white stucco, and wood accents for a clean, contemporary vibe. Installers worked with owners and the design team from the beginning to select terrazzo colors for the lively circular pattern of the floor, which is echoed in the ceiling. Thirty-nine different terrazzo samples were made prior to the final selection of five colors.
