CLEVELAND—Lexington by Vantage has announced plans to build a 158-room Lexington Inn & Suites in Dania Beach, Fla. that will be using the brand’s innovative prototype. The hotel will be owned by a Vantage Hospitality affiliate and is expected to break ground soon.
The Dania Beach property, located five miles south of Fort Lauderdale, continues Lexington’s steady growth and follows the recent opening of a Lexington Inn & Suites in Effingham, Ill., which was also a new build. Lexington’s leading new construction program includes sleek design features and provides flexibility to meet virtually any environment or site requirements.
“Hoteliers interested in building new will be impressed with the flexibility, affordability and adaptability of our prototype, and how it so uniquely brings together innovation and operational efficiency. We will continue our momentum by soon announcing another new construction project in Florida at the Miami airport that’s currently under PS&A/contract review, as well as two in California,” said Roger Bloss, founder, president, and CEO of Vantage Hospitality Group.
“This hotel is a fantastic way to create more awareness and continue our growth in our own back yard and nationally. This property is also a wonderful business opportunity, as its proximity to seaports and Fort Lauderdale’s airport will provide a healthy share of the cruise and business travel markets,” said Vantage COO and CFO Bernie Moyle.
The first floor will prominently feature the Lexington Loggia—a unique, open-air extension of the lobby that will serve as a gathering spot for socializing, relaxing, or holding casual meetings. Other amenities will include an outdoor pool on the second floor, a meeting room, and fully equipped fitness center.
