Downtown St Pete is changing daily. One such change is the renovation of Grayl’s Hotel by Chuck Prather to The Birchwood Inn. Renovation hardly describes the changes as this photo shows – not even all of the shell remains.
Intending to retain the original style as well as the exterior walls, Prather plans to add a new fourth floor with 8,000 sq ft for events and meetings and a fifth floor open-air bar and lounge with a rooftop deck. The goal is to finish and reopen on November 15th – if they do, I’ll plan to have my birthday dinner there!
