Irvine, Calif. – April 30, 2018 – R.D. Olson Construction, an award-winning general contracting firm in California, commenced ground-up construction on a waterfront dual-brand hotel by Marriott in Marina del Rey, California. Located on Via Marina and Tahiti Way near world-famous beaches, seaside dining and waterfront activities, the hotel will include a Courtyard and Residence Inn by Marriott overlooking the harbor. The 2-acre property will feature two podium-type buildings with 288 guest rooms in total and is close to Venice Beach, Redondo Beach Pier, Los Angeles International Airport and major freeways.
“We are honored to continue our partnership with MDR Hotels to develop a dual-brand hotel that delivers on the needs of both business travelers and extended-stay guests visiting Marina del Rey,” said Bill Wilhelm, president of R.D. Olson Construction. “This project marks our second dual-brand hotel in Los Angeles County and reflects our track record of helping hotel owners attract a wide variety of guests at various price points.”
The Courtyard by Marriott, a five-story, 159-room building situated on the south side of the project site, will be designed for business travelers. Features and amenities will include free Wi-Fi, in-room desks and flexible work and meeting spaces.
The 129-room, six-story Residence Inn, situated on the north side of the project site, will cater to extended-stay guests. Hotel offerings will include several room options, including large one-bedroom suites and penthouses. All rooms will feature a spacious living room, in-suite work space, wraparound decks that overlook the marina and a fully equipped kitchen to allow guests to feel comfortable and at home during their stay.
The Courtyard and Residence Inn will share a lobby, waterfront restaurant and bar and a second-level outdoor terrace showcasing an expansive view of the marina with a pool, cabanas and fireplace. The property will also include a separate fitness building, more than 72,000-square-feet of subterranean parking and 28-foot-wide pedestrian promenade along the water with a new public dock service.
The dual-brand Marriott hotel will boast a contemporary, coastal-inspired style and completion is anticipated for summer 2019.
The Marriott in Marina del Rey bolsters R.D. Olson Construction’s portfolio of dual-brand projects, which includes several new dual-brand properties that are expected to start construction this year.
