The St. Joe Company to Develop Home2 Suites by Hilton Hotel in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

USA, Panama City Beach, Florida. August 12, 2021

The St. Joe Company announced plans for a Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. St. Joe intends to build the hotel on its property near West Hewett Road just north of US Highway 98.

Plans call for the four-story hotel to feature 107 guest rooms including some one-bedroom suites. The amenities are planned to include a pool, a fitness center and an outdoor lounge with a fire pit. All Home2 Suites by Hilton hotels provide guests with free WiFi and complimentary breakfast. The planned location for the hotel is less than one mile from the iconic Scenic Highway 30A corridor and in close proximity to Topsail Hill Preserve State Park and the area's white-sand beaches.

"This hotel is a great fit for this location and is a great complement to our other hotels in the area," said Patrick Murphy, Senior Vice President of Hospitality for St. Joe. "More than 4 million people visit this area each year to enjoy the beautiful beaches, state parks, vibrant restaurant scene and abundant local shopping. This hotel is planned to be in the middle of it all."

Once complete, the planned hotel will be managed by St. Joe. The Company owns or operates five hotels and with this planned Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel, it will have an additional six hotels under development or construction. Upon their completion, these projects will bring St. Joe's hotel portfolio to 1,170 rooms.

St. Joe intends to break ground on the planned Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel later in 2021 and anticipates a 2023 opening.

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key

Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
