October 24, 2014

A 156-suite Residence Inn by Marriott opened today in Dania Beach, FL. LBA Hospitality, a hotel management and development company based in Dothan, Ala., will manage the four-story property located near the Fort Lauderdale area.

Dania Beach is known for award-winning “Blue Wave Beaches,” nature activities and close proximity to Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood Beach. This scenic coastal city is just minutes from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Everglades National Park and Port Everglades Cruise Port.

“We are excited to bring an LBA Hospitality property to the Dania Beach area,” said Beau Benton, President of LBA Hospitality. “With it’s convenient proximity to Hollywood Beach, Miami and the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, we hope guests will enjoy the ability to explore coastal Florida, whether traveling for business or pleasure.”

Located at 4801 Anglers Avenue, in a growing area with a great location right off I-95 and the Florida Turnpike, the extended-stay hotel offers complimentary shuttles to and from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and is just a short drive from Miami.

As one of the largest all-suite hotels in the area, guests will enjoy one-bedroom or two-bedroom accommodations complete with full kitchens and separate living, working and sleeping areas. Designed by Rodriguez Architect Inc. out of Coral Gables, Florida, the hotel features an outdoor swimming pool with Splash Pad, fitness center and complimentary hot breakfast buffet. For business travelers, the Residence Inn features a full-service business center and 512 square feet of meeting space that can seat up to 30 guests.

“This hotel will bring over 60 new jobs to the area,” said Suira Plante, General Manager of Residence Inn Fort Lauderdale Airport and Cruise Port. “My team and I are excited to welcome guests and are fully-prepared to offer the signature customer service they have grown to expect from the Marriott brand.”

The $23 million LBA property is slated to open Friday, October 24 and is owned by Apple REIT. While continuing to grow their portfolio of hotels, LBA Hospitality is dedicated to making a positive impact on the community of Dania Beach, as well as all other cities they have a presence in.
