TownePlace Suites by Marriott Orlando at SeaWorld and
Holiday Inn Express and Suites Orlando at SeaWorld slated to open this summer
LBA Hospitality, a full-scale hotel management, development and consulting firm, is bringing the first TownePlace to the market for both short-term and extended stays. Focusing on the leisure and corporate crowds, the hotels are located within a five minute drive to the Orange County Convention Center. TownePlace Suites by Marriott Orlando at SeaWorld and Holiday Inn Express and Suites Orlando at SeaWorld are the newest additions to LBA Hospitality’s growing hotel portfolio in the Central Florida area. The hotels are owned by Mandala Holdings.
“We are thrilled to offer brand-new, ideally located hotels in the magical city of Orlando,” said LBA President Beau Benton. “These two new properties will enable us to serve more visitors, business travelers and families looking for an affordable, convenient, fresh stay in two outstanding custom-designed, new hotels. Through our dedication to great service, we look forward to helping even more dreams come true in Orlando.”
Figueroa most recently served as general manager of SpringHill Suites in Sanford, Fla., and was named LBA’s General Manager of the Year in 2016 for his remarkable service at that property. Caracciolo brings 16 years of hospitality experience to his role, previously supporting IHG’s Holiday Inn Franklin-Cool Springs. Prior to his role there, he served as general manager of LBA-managed Courtyard by Marriott Lake Mary-North.
