The new owner of the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood has announced its plans for the property — and those plans don’t include keeping the Westin affiliation.

Thayer Lodging Group, which paid $460 million for the 998-room hotel at 3555 S. Ocean Dr., will rename it the Diplomat Resort & Spa. In October, the property will join the new brand Curio — A Collection by Hilton.

The Maryland-based lodging company plans to invest $100 million in enhancements to the hotel starting later this year; it will remain open during the shift to the new brand.
