DoubleTree Looking to Add 70 Rooms

Hotel developer Fess Parker’s family members are proposing yet another development plan for their waterfront property by Cabrillo Boulevard and Calle César Chávez on which they have permits to build a 150-room hotel. The Parker family is now seeking to build a much smaller upscale hotel ​— ​the actual number of rooms has yet to be determined ​— ​on the site and to transfer rights to add up to 70 rooms to the DoubleTree inn. Such a transfer would require a zoning amendment and possibly a new coastal development permit. The family secured approval to build the 150-room hotel in 1995, and building permits were issued in 2007.
