US: The 95-key Residence Inn by Marriott St. Petersburg Tierra Verde has opened its doors to guests.

Owned by Prime Hospitality Group and operated by Shaner Hotel Group, the Marriott franchised hotel is located at 214 Madonna Boulevard, on the Tierra Verde Resort Marina. It is close to Fort DeSoto State Park and nine miles from downtown St. Petersburg.

The property hosts on-site dining selections, retail, boating, two pools and a rooftop restaurant named Vista at The Top.

“We are pleased with the continued growth of Residence Inn to the Tierra Verde area,” said Diane Mayer, vice president and global brand manager, Residence Inn at Marriott International. “When on the road for an extended period, our guests need space to spread out, maintain their life’s pace and restore their energy to keep a healthy balance and routine while traveling. This new hotel offers a seamless blend of modern style and functionality that allows them to settle in and thrive.”

Plato Ghinos, president of Shaner Hotel Group, said: “The Residence Inn by Marriott brand is ideal for Southwestern Florida visitors who require additional space and amenities to make the most of their business or leisure excursions. As an approved Marriott operator, we are intimately familiar with the Residence Inn brand. This marks the 38th Marriott addition to our portfolio of owned and operated hotels across the United States and Europe, as well as the 42 hotel we have opened. Following its ramp up period, we fully expect the Residence Inn by Marriott St. Petersburg to become the upscale destination of choice for visitors to the area.”
