Construction continues on an 111-room Marriott Residence Inn and a 111-room Courtyard by Marriott, both at 3536 Secor Rd.
Construction moves along rapidly on an 111-room Marriott Residence Inn and a 111-room Courtyard by Marriott, both at 3536 Secor Rd. on property that used to house the former Ramada Toledo Hotel and Conference Center, which was demolished last year. The two hotels, which are side by side with the Residence Inn next to I-475 and the Courtyard just to its south, are part of a four-hotel pod developed by Key Hotel and Property Management Inc. Key also developed two adjacent Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn hotels just to the south of the new construction. When the Marriott hotels are completed, all four hotels will be connected by a service road and have access to two new restaurants, Texas Road House and Bubba’s 33.
