Irvine, Calif., proposes building $100M Marriott

Less than a year after opening an eight-story, 210-room hotel by the Irvine Spectrum in Irvine, Calif., R.D. Olson Development proposed building another hotel next door.

Plans for the property call for a 15-story, 250-room full-service Marriott with amenities such as a rooftop bar, valet service and poolside cabanas. The cost is estimated at over $100 million, according to Jonathon Vopinek, VP for asset management at R.D. Olson.

Irvine last saw a new hotel open in December 2009.
