Marriott Resorts to Virginias Beach Hotel Growth
Virginias beach hotels are a popular resort destination for many.
But they’ve faced a shortage of rooms and a growing demand for more rooms.
Marriott has announced it will build a hotel on the beach in 2019 that will house up to 4,500 rooms, but it will be only a small part of its expansion plans.
The company says the expansion will be part of a larger effort to help meet the needs of the resort community, and will be fully funded by the state.
The resort, which has a capacity of about 3,600 guests, has about 1,400 rooms in its three hotels.
Marriott is partnering with the Charlotte-based Virginias Development Corporation and other partners to create the new hotel, which will include a convention center, a spa and a food hall.
Marriott says it is adding a new pool and spa.
Virginias Beach will become the third Virginias resort and the third in North Carolina.
