Hotel Development Planned in Stuart, FL

Marriott International Approves 120-Unit Courtyard by Marriott

. October 14, 2008

WATERFORD, CT, August 10, 2006. A Connecticut-based developer has announced plans to build a brand new 120-unit Courtyard by Marriott in Stuart, Florida. The development is a joint venture between Pittsburgh-based FFC Capital Corporation and Connecticut-based Waterford Hospitality Group, LLC. Scheduled to open in 2008, the $16 million hotel will be located at 95 Riverside, with direct access from both Interstate 95 and Florida's Turnpike.

According to the developers, who have worked closely with the Business Development Board of Martin County on this project, a non-refundable deposit has been placed on the parcel of land located at the intersection of I-95 and State Road 76. The group expects to close on the land in late 2006/early 2007.

"This location coupled with this hotel brand will clearly become a market leader," said Fred Branovan, President and COO of FFC Capital Corporation. "The Stuart area is a developing area and an attractive location for hotel development," said Rob Winchester, President and COO, Business Development for Waterford. "Based on our review of the market, we believe that a Courtyard by Marriott will be a welcomed alternative for the business and leisure traveler looking for first-class accommodations in the area." Waterford Hotel Group, a national hotel management firm currently operating 26 properties in 8 states, will operate the Stuart Courtyard by Marriott.

Mobile Technology: Next Level Innovation

Despite the recent adversity that has challenged the entire lodging industry in every facet of its operation, the relentless march of digital innovation continues unabated. Part of this is driven by the need to outperform the competition so hoteliers can promote their operations to digitally-savvy Millennial travelers, and part of it is driven by the desire to continuously find new ways to enhance the guest experience. In that regard, hotel apps that provide mobile check-in/out, room access, room service, and the capacity to control in-room lights, curtains, temperature, and television programming from a guest's personal device is fast becoming standard. Soon, new features such as voice control, facial recognition, smart rooms, and the use of A.I. for things like virtual hotel tours may be on the horizon. The January Hotel Business Review will report on how some hotels are integrating new mobile technologies into their operations to offer their guests an impressive, next level experience.
