Next month Boca Raton’s City Council will review plans for the city’s first downtown hotel.

The Hyatt Place Hotel Boca Raton would rise 12 stories at 120 East Palmetto Park Road and would be the third downtown building to rise higher than the 100-foot limit. The hotel could be as tall 140 feet with another 20 feet of architectural features, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

The hotel is slated to include 200 rooms and an 8,000-square-foot restaurant. And last week, the city’s planning board gave its unanimous support for the project.

“That [a hotel] has definitely been a missing piece,” Alana Cohen, a member of the Downtown Boca Raton Advisory Committee and owner of Cohen Window Fashion, said. “Most cities have a downtown hotel.” [Sun-Sentinel] Christopher Cameron
