The Shaner Hotel Group today announced the grand opening of the 105-room Fairfield Inn & Suites Daytona Beach Speedway/Airport. The hotel is owned by a joint venture comprised of Prime Hospitality Group, the International Speedway Corporation (ISC) and Shaner. Shaner also will operate the property.
"With its prime location across the street from Daytona International Speedway and its premier selection of dining, entertainment and shopping options, ONE DAYTONA has become the destination of choice for race fans and area visitors," said Lance Shaner, chief executive officer, The Shaner Hotel Group. "The Fairfield Inn & Suites Daytona Beach Speedway/Airport caters to everyone from business travelers seeking the latest amenities to families who prefer the added space our suites provide. This marks our 13th Fairfield hotel, and we are confident our familiarity with the brand will allow us to ramp up quickly as the hotel takes its rightful place as the destination of choice for Daytona Beach's midscale travelers."
Located at 1820 Checkered Flag Blvd., the four-story property is one of two hotels to anchor ONE DAYTONA, a premier mixed-use destination located across from Daytona International Speedway. The Fairfield is convenient to the Richard Petty Race Experience, Daytona Beach, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, and Boardwalk Amusement Center. The hotel features Fairfield's signature expanded lobby with spaces designed for entertainment, socializing and working. The hotel also offers 2,000 square feet of meeting space, as well as a 24/7 market, indoor pool, fitness center, business center and flexible work spaces. All guest rooms are furnished with high-speed Wi-Fi internet access, mini-refrigerators and microwaves. Suites provide separate living and working spaces.
ONE DAYTONA offers world-class shopping and entertainment options, including the 67,000-square-foot Bass Pro Shops®Outpost and the 12-screen Cobb Daytona Luxury Theatres. Additional outlets include Kasa Living, BUILT Custom Burgers, Lindbergh and Designers Market, Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery and MidiCi: The Neapolitan Pizza Company. The complex also features a 276-unit luxury apartment community, including a four-story mid-rise campus and garden-style complex, set to open in late 2018.
"We continue to have a healthy appetite for new development of well-branded hotels in unique marketplaces with high barriers to entry and numerous, irreplaceable demand generators," noted Plato Ghinos, Shaner president. "This marks the fourth addition to our portfolio this year, and we remain on track to open and/or acquire an additional four hotels by year's end 2018."
