Courtyard of the Hacienda Hotel in April 2012. The City of New Port Richey seeks a buyer to restore it
The City of New Port Richey bought the hotel at the height of the real estate boom and has struggled to find a willing buyer to restore it. The hotel is falling into disrepair. A lease-to-buy deal was signed in February 2015 between the City of New Port Richey and Abraham Rosner, with the intent to develop the property as a boutique hotel.
