Port approves two hotel renovations on Shelter Island

Plans are moving forward to renovate and enhance two Port of San Diego hotels on Shelter Island.

The port’s board of commissioners approved two lease extensions and granted concept approval for renovation projects at Humphrey's Half Moon Inn and Suites and Best Western Plus Island Palms Hotel & Marina at its monthly board meeting in December.

The projects entail a combined $8 million investment by San Diego-based Bartell Hotels.

The Humphrey's lease was extended by 19 years, and improvements will include renovations to guest rooms and suites, including restroom and kitchens; upgrading guest room balconies and patios, garden walls and exterior stairways; resurfacing building exteriors with stucco; and upgrading HVAC system to the restaurant.

The Island Palms lease was extended by 10 years, and upgrading will consist of replacing of wood stairs with concrete; resurfacing building exteriors with stucco; replacing guest room windows; installing a new roof on guest rooms, lobby, offices and the restaurant; replacing walkways; and creating an enhanced marina entrance.

Construction on both projects is expected to start in February and will be phased over a two-year period to minimize disruption to hotel guests.

“Bartell Hotels' investment in Humphrey's and Island Palms is an excellent example of port tenants reinvesting in the waterfront of San Diego Bay,” said Ann Moore, chairwoman of the board of port commissioners. “Bartell has been a tenant for almost 30 years and has demonstrated a continuous commitment to providing a great experience for visitors to our port.”
