Tradition, Florida The 111-room, extended stay Hilton Homewood Suites was constructed in the planned community of Tradition Florida in the City of Port St. Lucie. The developer of the Tradition property required that the prototype be modified to meet their strict planning and design guidelines. To address this requirement, HBT prepared a design that added areas of color. a variety of roof lines, a brick base of varying height, porches at the entries and small “window bays” on the elevations. Lush landscaping and garden areas are also key elements of the design. In addition to the aesthetic requirements, the hotel was designed to meet the strictest levels of hurricane design due to it’s proximity to the ocean. This hotel was selected by Hilton to appear in their current marketing materials for the Homewood Suites brand.
