NAPLES, Fla. - "When you take a masterpiece like this and you have to re-master it, its like taking a picture, you have to work on the frame work, you have to work on the intricacies of the picture and that's what we're going to do," said Bruce Seigel, the Director of Sales and Marketing.
The Ritz Carlton on Vanderbilt Beach is getting a make-over from top to bottom.
"It ranges from infrastructure, things that the guests wont see but can feel, to things that they will see and touch and feel. So it runs the gamete," said Seigel.
And Bruce Seigel, the Director of Sales and Marketing, said the hotel's 800 employees are being helped and taken care of.
"And they've been working on a plan and everyone in our Human Resources department actually sat down with each lady and gentleman, looked over their vacation schedule, looked over when they would be away, looked over their hospital and health care opportunities, looked at other opportunities that might be here for them on property, because we are still going to be operating."
So as the changes get made, nearby restaurants and businesses said they're benefitting from the construction.
"A lot of the people who come down from the U.K. or Canada they come down during the summer, they look for weekly rentals, and now with the Ritz we've been seeing a lot of increased traffic and a lot of calls," said Arelys Kammeraad, the Rental Coordinator with South Bay Realty.
