Annapolis hotel expects to unveil renovations in April

Visitors to the Sheraton Barcelo Hotel in Annapolis this spring will find several new touches thanks to a $4.5 million renovation that its management expects to be complete by mid-April.

The Jennifer Road hotel is modernizing from the beds to the lobby, hoping to attract more meeting and party business, general manager Susan Mabry said.

"You name it - everything is being gutted," she said.

Mabry said the hotel will unveil a new atrium, lobby, health club and ballroom. Its 197 rooms will be redesigned to include sleigh beds and Roman shades.
