Marriott International announced this week that the 107-room SpringHill Suites by Marriott San Diego Escondido/Downtown is scheduled to open this Friday, May 3.
The 107-suite hotel, located at 200 La Terraza Boulevard, will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by Excel Hotel Group of San Diego. General Manager Chuck Ault and Director of Sales Alexandra Bartley lead the management team at the property for Excel Hotel Group.
The SpringHill Suites San Diego Escondido/Downtown is located in downtown Escondido and 30 miles from downtown San Diego. The all-suite hotel offers guests convenient access to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, the California Center for the Arts, Stone Brewery, Palomar Medical Center and Cal State San Marcos.
Michelle Geller, the city’s economic development manager, hailed the new hotel’s opening: “We are thrilled to welcome Marriott Springhill Suites as the first new hotel to open in Escondido in over a decade. It’s a beautiful property with a high-end, modern aesthetic and really spectacular views. Visitors and business travelers are going to be really impressed with it.”
Mayor Paul McNamara added, “We are excited about the opening of the Marriott SpringHill Suites. Escondido has needed a stronger hotel presence for many years. This opening helps meet a need for our city. We are glad and pleased that a quality hotel chain like Marriott is locating here.”
Escondido Chamber of Commerce President Rorie Johnston added, “The Springhill Suite, Marriott is an excellent addition to our vibrant city. We believe guests staying here will enjoy all that Escondido has to offer, from world-class entertainment at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, to dining in a variety of our fine restaurants. It is also a great place to stay if guests wish to explore the great outdoors at the Safari Park or on one of our beautiful mountain trails or lakes. The Escondido economy will also benefit as guests tend to spend 30% of their travel funds at local establishments.”
“As a brand opening a new hotel every 10 days on average, we are delighted that the SpringHill Suites San Diego Escondido/Downtown is the latest addition to our growing number of properties across the United States and Canada,” Janis Milham, senior vice president and global brand leader, Classic Select Brands. “Our all-suite offering, and convenient amenities offer guests a little extra to help them enjoy their stay. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, we understand that guests want to connect to the local area. We make it our business to help them do that by offering our local expertise, and bringing the community into the hotel through our 24/7 market, lobby bar and at our Art of Local events.”
Ideal for business and leisure travelers alike, the new hotel offers a little extra space with suites larger than a typical hotel room. Separate living, working and sleeping spaces provide guests with flexibility and functionality. The hotel offers comfortable beds, soft linens and plush pillows to allow for an optimum night’s sleep. Each suite also features the SpringHill Suites’ custom, three-in-one, West Elm sofa which converts from a sofa to a daybed to a trundle bed – without sacrificing its stylish good looks and a stylish West Elm Swivel Chair offering additional space for relaxation. The designated work space offers a well-lit desk space to ensure maximum productivity for those who need to get down to business. Other room amenities include a walk-in closet, a mini-fridge, a microwave and a spa-like bathroom.
