SpringHill Suites by Marriott Lakeland tops out, eyes 2020 opening

Lakeland Hospitality Group announced the topping out construction milestone of the SpringHill Suites by Marriott in downtown Lakeland, Fla. The topping out signifies the completion of the building’s preliminary structural framework with the placement of its final steel beam. The hotel broke ground on October 1, 2018 and is slated to open in mid-April 2020.

Tomlinson Construction is serving as the project’s development manager, overseeing the build and day-to-day construction efforts provided by general contractor Rodda Construction. McKibbon Places, an Atlanta-based company focused on hotel development and renovations, is consulting on the development of the hotel, which will be managed by Tampa-based McKibbon Hospitality.   

Upon completion, the five-story hotel will have 126 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.
