Bethany Beach, DE – Bethany Beach Ocean Suites Residence Inn by Marriott unveiled a multimillion-dollar makeover on June 14th, encompassing newly designed guest suites and public spaces, meeting rooms and grand event hall, and a new hybrid indoor-outdoor pool. 

Alongside the renovation, new signature restaurant Via Sophia by the Sea provides guests a modern osteria dining experience including pastas and breads made in house and fresh-from-the-boat seafood. The redesign reflects a fun and whimsical ambiance, capturing the refreshing tranquility of vacation while also providing guests with the necessary comforts of home. Bethany Beach Ocean Suites is owned and operated by EOS Hospitality.

From the moment of arrival, guests feel a sense of warm hospitality as the lobby envelops them in a calm, welcoming environment. The color palette reflects the serenity of the beach, boasting both soft and bold blue and green hues, as well as playful bursts of orange and yellow. The lighting offers a sense of calm, with texturized materials and matte finishes for the fixtures. The art is also textural and organic in aesthetic, capturing the nature of the beautiful coastal property. The hotel continued its partnership with Ellen Rice Studio to curate the art for the redesign, complementing the hotel’s beach-inspired décor with her locally inspired works of art.

The hotel’s spacious suites reflect vibrant hues, a mix of whimsical patterns and light wood tones. All the guestrooms were renovated with new bed frames and headboards, side tables, dining and workspace tables, bureaus, sleeper sofas and flooring. Guest suites feature private balconies offering gorgeous views of the boardwalk, beach, or downtown. Kitchens and kitchenettes include a refrigerator, stovetop, microwave, dishwasher, flatware, and more. Additional amenities include pillowtop mattresses, flat-panel TVs, and high-speed WiFi.

The hotel’s meeting rooms, and grand event hall were updated with new flooring, wall coverings, painting, and lighting. The hotel’s saltwater pool also is refreshed and features a retractable roof that allows for both indoor and outdoor enjoyment

Signature restaurant Via Sophia by the Sea features a lively, sophisticated setting with a modern osteria design. Dishes are made in-house from scratch, using the freshest, locally sourced ingredients. Classic Italian dishes, pastas and breads, and fresh-from-the-boat seafood are paired with bespoke beverages and a discerning wine list. This 164-seat, indoor/outdoor restaurant features live entertainment three nights per week. Following the success and critical acclaim of the original Via Sophia concept that debuted in Washington DC in 2019, this is the third Via Sophia to debut on the east coast, poised to become the most sought-after eatery in the area.

Nestled on Delaware’s Bethany Beach Boardwalk, the oceanfront Bethany Beach Ocean Suites surrounds guests with the excitement of the sun, sand and sea while spoiling them with sophisticated style. Guests are invited to start their day with a delicious complimentary breakfast, before they take a dip in the hotel’s saltwater pool and then hit the beach. When it’s time to call it a night, travelers can settle down in oversized airy suites to watch the sunset from their private balcony.
