Courtyard by Marriott / BR CBD

Developers today unveiled plans and a rendering for an 80,000-square-foot Courtyard Marriott that will be developed on the surface parking lot at the corner of Florida and Third streets downtown. The new hotel will have 147 rooms and eight floors. Construction is scheduled to begin in April or May and is expected to take 24 months to complete. "This is a great corner that is in the heart of downtown," says South Carolina developer Bo Aughtry

Plans for another downtown hotel are also in the works. Developer Mike Wampold has announced his intentions to redevelop the former Louisiana National Bank building—just one block away from the new Marriott site—into a limited service hotel.
