Stellar Development awarded the renovation projects at the Residence Innby Marriott at Tampa Westshore, and the Residence Inn by Marriott in Charlotte, NC. Avion Park Westshore is a 18-acre mixed-use development directly south of Tampa International Airport. Following the hotels is a 136,000-square-foot owner-occupied office tower, managed by McKibbon Hotel Management, and a 300,000-square-foot leased office building, developed, owned and managed by Highwoods Properties. Construction has also been completed on a 21,000- square-foot retail shopping center.
McKibbon Hotel Management Inc., based in Tampa, operates more than 60 mid and upscale brands in eight states throughout the Southeast.
The new hotel, opening Dec. 12, has 144 suites, featuring studio, one- and two-bedroom options. Todd Kinney is the hotel’s general manager. He has more than 20 years of experience and previously led McKibbon’s Courtyard by Marriott Tampa North.
“Our properties in the Westshore market have been performing substantially above expectations, even in today’s challenging economy,” said John McKibbon, chief executive.
McKibbon Hotel Management will manage the new property, Homewood Suites by Hilton Tampa Airport/Westshore.
