Did you know there is a NEW Waterstone Manatee Mascot at the Resort & Marina in Boca Raton?
Meet Morty, the Waterstone Manatee Mascot!
The 2016 mascot campaign, which includes a manatee-themed hotel package and an educational component, will allow guests to automatically support statewide preservation efforts through the Save the Manatee Club, a non-profit organization that will receive a percentage of proceeds from the program’s revenues.
Maybe you caught it on MBMom’s social media, but the manatee mascot campaign kicked off in early December, when Boca Raton locals and hotel guests were invited to cast their vote for the naming of the new Waterstone manatee mascot.
A grand naming celebration then took place on Dec. 20, where we celebrated the newest team member and enjoyed activities including a manatee cookie decorating table, various games and prizes and, a kids buffet luncheon. So much fun!
As a state marine mammal, the Florida manatee plays an important role in influencing the plant growth in shallow waters, bays, estuaries, canals and coastal waters they call home; and now, Waterstone Resort & Marina will play homage to the local gentle giants.
Situated on the Intracoastal Waterway, during migratory season, Waterstone guests often spot manatees from the outdoor patio. It was only natural to choose it as the Resort’s mascot!
Located on the Intracoastal Waterway and one block from the beach, Waterstone Resort & Marina – A DoubleTree by Hilton is centered upon a bold design and name that celebrates its distinctive waterside location. Using locally sourced ingredients to produce a variety of dishes and cocktails, the two dining outlets of Boca Landing and Waterstone Bar & Grill, provide guests with a distinctive food style conveying “just off the boat” elements.
With on-site watersports, boating and sailing opportunities along with bicycle rentals, the resort also showcases modern meeting and event space that is uniquely water-oriented in location and views. All of the resort’s 139 guest rooms and 11 suites offer private balconies with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway. Waterstone Resort & Marina – A DoubleTree by Hilton is located among pristine beaches, championship golf courses, word-class dining, upscale shopping at the Boca Raton Town Center, Mizner Park and village-style shopping in downtown Boca Raton.
