SANDUSKY — Renovations have begun on the historic Hotel Breakers at Cedar Point, which is part of a $60 million, three-year reinvestment in the three hotel properties located at or near the Sandusky amusement park.

The refurbishment of the Breakers, which was built in 1905, is a two-year, two-phase project. The first phase, which began last month, consists of exterior work that includes a new roof and a fresh coat of paint.

In the 2014 off season, construction crews will begin interior improvements on the 500-room hotel. Details of the upgrade to the Breakers have not been disclosed but officials of Cedar Fair LP, the park’s parent company, have said that their plans call for a refreshening in some areas of the hotel, but that there could be a repositioning or refurbishment of other sections.

Cedar Point also is expected to enhance portions of the beach in front of the Hotel Breakers. The park’s Sandcastle Suites and nearby Breakers Express Hotel also are slated for renovations between now and 2015. To pay for all the upgrades, in 2012 Cedar Fair sold its Knott’s Soak City water park near San Diego to SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment.

A purchase price was never disclosed but Cedar Fair said proceeds from the sale of the water park mostly would cover the costs of its hotel improvements.
