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.

Sales & Marketing: Promoting Peace of Mind

As the hotel industry transitions to a more familiar position, it is still necessary for hotels to emphasize in their marketing the health protocols they have implemented to ensure guest safety and wellness. Above all, guests need to be reassured that every precaution is being taken to safeguard their well-being. Additionally, there are other marketing strategies that hotels can implement as a way to boost their business. For example, neighborhood marketing is a tactic that relies heavily on appealing to local audiences. Incentives targeting locals can fulfill the craving that some people have for time away from home, but aren't ready to hop on a plane. Another viable strategy is to promote experiences in nature. After being stuck inside for so long, many people are looking for hotels to help them re-connect with the great outdoors. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting and how they are benefiting from them.
