LBA Hospitality, a full-scale hotel management, development and consulting firm, opened the Homewood Suites by Hilton Cape Canaveral.

The property, which is geared toward leisure, convention and business travelers, was designed by architects Bradley, Schmidt & Carn of Dothan, Ala., with interior design by Peggy Dye & Associates of Birmingham, Ala.

Homewood Suites by Hilton Cape Canaveral, which began construction October 2014, includes a pool, fitness center, complimentary hot breakfast, grocery shopping service, business center, fully-equipped kitchen in suites, a 600-square-foot meeting room, 275-square-foot boardroom and more. 'Park-and-cruise' packages are also available for guests given the property's close proximity to the Port Canaveral cruise port.

The property’s opening marks LBA’s seventeenth property under management in Florida, six of which are Hilton-branded. 

"It has been a pleasure to develop properties for Hilton, and we are proud that we now have at least one hotel belonging to each of the company’s brands,” said Beau Benton, president of LBA.

The 153-room Homewood Suites by Hilton Cape Canaveral is located at 9000 Astronaut Blvd. in Cape Canaveral, Fla. The property is located near area shops and restaurants, the Port Canaveral cruise port, Cocoa Beach, Kennedy Space Center, NASA, Boeing and Lockheed Martin.
