El Capitan Hotel, Merced, CA
As part of a larger effort to reinvigorate downtown Merced, the historic El Capitan Hotel is undergoing an extensive renovation and expansion. MGAC is managing the entire project, which includes a restoration of the historic facade, an interior renovation of 33 existing guestrooms, and the construction of a new adjoining hotel annex to house 67 guestrooms. Additional spaces include a new full-service restaurant, cafe, wine bar, exterior and interior courtyards, and a fitness center.
In addition to the hotel property, the project also includes the conversion of a historic theater into a vibrant downtown destination. When complete, the property will include a new restaurant, bar, four bowling lanes, private event space, and performance space.
