CLEARWATER — Mainsail Lodging & Development plans to reopen the Karol Hotel, a $30 million Clearwater property that first opened in February, right before the coronavirus pandemic took hold, on Nov. 11. 

The Tampa-based hospitality company, in a press release, says rooms will be offered at special rates starting as low as $114 per night, and all reservations will include a $25 food and beverage voucher. The promotion runs through Dec. 15. 

“Our team has been working tirelessly to put new health measures in place, and we’re thrilled for guests to come and safely experience this magnificent new hotel,” Karol Hotel General Manager Adam Duffey states in the release. “We’re including the food and beverage credit to help celebrate our return and welcome everyone back.”

Located at 2675 Ulmerton Road, in the Feather Sound area between Clearwater and St. Petersburg, the 12-story, 123-room Karol Hotel is named in honor of Karol Bullard, the wife of Fred Bullard, whose company, the Bullard Group, developed the property, which is Pinellas County’s first Marriott Tribute Portfolio hotel. Although the hotel’s K Club Bar & Bistro remains temporarily closed, its Vantage Rooftop Bar, offering sweeping views of Tampa Bay, will be open. 

Guests and employees, the releases states, will be required to wear face coverings in all indoor public areas. Social distancing guidelines and protocols established by Marriott International will also be strictly followed.
