Four Points by Sheraton Hotel received a grant of $359,000 from the City of Tallahassee's Community Redevelopment Agency to conduct extensive  façade
improvements and renovations to the formerly vacant building we still call the 'Round Holiday Inn.'

According to estimates from the City of Tallahassee, total building renovations were estimated at $13.6 million.  The grant funds were used to support more than $250,000 in LEED certified enhancements, including a green roof over the main entrance and the installation of solar panels, and over $100,000 in improvements to the restaurant and interior/exterior entertainment venues.
