Marriott Beach Resorts--Frenchman's Reef and MorningStar--on St. Thomas is being transformed by a $45 million restoration. Only the beautiful setting, which overlooks the harbor of Charlotte Amalie, will remain unchanged once the resort's West Indian style transformation is completed in December 1997. The resort will then feature a total of 504 guest rooms, including MorningStar's 96 luxury rooms, five restaurants, a gallery of duty-free shops, extensive recreational facilities, and more than 60,000 square feet of meeting, banquet, and function space.
