POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – (February 28, 2012) – Urgo Hotels is proud to announce the opening of Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Oceanfront on July 1, 2013 - a boutique-style oceanfront resort nestled within the charming city of Pompano Beach. It is the first hotel to break ground in the area since Residence Inn Fort Lauderdale Pompano Beach Oceanfront, formerly Ocean Sands Resort & Spa, which was built on North Ocean Drive in 2002.
Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Oceanfront will feature 219 luxury guest rooms, each with private balconies and views of the Atlantic; and will boast more than 8,000-square-feet of meeting and function space, including a 4,000-square-foot oceanfront ballroom. The well-appointed resort will be home to multiple pools and a 3,000-square-foot rooftop terrace for special events. Also to be revealed upon the resort’s opening is an upscale seafood-driven restaurant, McCoy’s Oceanfront, with an indoor/outdoor bar and seating overlooking the private beach.
Conveniently located between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm international airports and area cruise terminals, the hotel is strategically positioned for business and leisure travel with easy proximity to the nightlife, shopping dining and casinos of Pompano Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm.
Urgo Hotels, a major operator, developer and owner of upscale hotels, offers a unique hotel experience that embraces the simplicity and luxury of oceanfront Florida living. “Pompano Beach is ripe for a boutique-style beachfront hotel with upscale amenities and services,” said Principal and Chief Investment Officer for Urgo Hotels, Kevin Urgo. “There is very little in the way of oceanfront product in this market, so we feel certain that it will help drive vacation travelers to the area.”
The Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Oceanfront represents what Lamar Fisher, mayor of Pompano Beach calls “the game changer the City was waiting for.” He continues by noting that, “The City of Pompano Beach can now compete on a national level for major tourism events and conferences, and at the same time offer this magnificent resort property to our residents and their visiting families and friends. We are thrilled to be working with the Urgo Hotels team in bringing tourists to our City.”
