Lakeland Hospitality Group, McKibbon Hospitality, and local officials gathered for the grand opening of Lakeland’s newest and cleanest hotel, SpringHill Suites Lakeland.
Located next door to the RP Funding Center, the hotel suites are within walking distance to not only the convention center, but to many local eateries, shops, and businesses in Downtown Lakeland.
The five-story 126-room SpringHill Suites by Marriott Lakeland boasts spacious guest rooms, 4,000 square-feet of meeting space, a full-service bar and lounge, outdoor pool and patio with fire pit, and 24-hour fitness room.
Along with an inviting atmosphere and impeccable customer service, the hotel will offer guests all the SpringHill Suites brand amenities they are accustomed to, including free hot breakfast, complimentary Wi-Fi, a 24/7 market with “grab and go” options, and furniture packages from the modern home brand, West Elm.
SpringHill Suites is not only the first hotel suites of its kind in Lakeland, but it is also the very first hotel project to be constructed in partnership with Mayfair Properties of Lakeland and the Lakeland Hospitality Group.
“We worked hand-in-hand with the city to get this done,” said Wesley Barnett, partner with Mayfair Properties of Lakeland. “This hotel is a work of art. We put in a lot of work into making sure they will be a jewel for Lakeland that would stand out, and I believe we succeeded for the most part.”
The planning for the hotel started three years ago. Since then, the construction and overall execution of the hotel project have more than met the expectations of all of the organizations working on it, explained Randy Hassen, President of Hotel Management with McKibbon Hospitality.
“This property is a testament to their commitment to excellence and quality at every turn,” he said. “We are excited to be part of the Lakeland community. Our journey starts today. We have a successful opening, which is a testament to what we bring to the table.”
