GULF BREEZE, FLA. – December 3, 2019 – Innisfree Hotels has broken ground on its latest development project, a dual-branded SpringHill Suites and Courtyard by Marriott hotel located at 2900 Atlantic Avenue in Amelia Island, Fla.
The hotel company will partner with Main Beach Sojourn LLLP, carrying on a 26-year affiliation of principals associated with the former Amelia Island Care Center located on the site.
The all-new hotel boasts 239 rooms including suites, a resort-style pool deck with in-pool seating, a courtyard with fire pit area and poolside bar, a fitness room, 6,086 sq. ft. of meeting space and a location within walking distance of the Atlantic Ocean.
“We’ve had the privilege of being part of the Amelia Island community for the past three years,” says Ted Ent, CEO of Innisfree Hotels. “The growth and development happening on Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island as a whole is exciting, and we’re looking forward to being able to welcome even more guests to the Atlantic Coast.”
This is the second Marriott property in the Innisfree Hotels portfolio, and Ent and his team are partial to the brand.
“They have an outstanding reservation system, unparalleled customer loyalty program and a robust marketing strategy that spans the entire globe,” he says. “It gives us confidence knowing we will be offering a top-notch, quality product to our guests.”
Innisfree Hotels was recently ranked by Hotel Business, the top source for hotel industry information according to Harvey Research, as the 40th largest hotel owner and developer in the United States.
“Our recent ranking at No. 40 is a direct result of our team’s dedication to a sustainable beach-oriented development strategy, our partners and our commitment to providing fun, memorable experiences to our guests,” Ent says.
The hotel is slated to open in the spring of 2021.
