POMPANO BEACH, Fla.—Urgo Hotels announced that the opening of Fort Lauderdale Marriot Pompano Beach Oceanfront is scheduled for July 1. It is the first hotel to break ground in the area since Residence Inn Fort Lauderdale Pompano Beach Oceanfront, formerly Ocean Sands Resort & Spa, which was built on North Ocean Drive in 2002.
Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Oceanfront will feature 219 guestrooms, each with private balconies; and will offer more than 8,000-square-feet of meeting and function space, including a 4,000-square-foot oceanfront ballroom. The well-appointed resort will be home to multiple pools and a 3,000-square-foot rooftop terrace for special events. Also to be revealed upon the resort’s opening is an upscale seafood-driven restaurant, McCoy’s Oceanfront, with an indoor/outdoor bar and seating overlooking the private beach.
“Pompano Beach is ripe for a boutique-style beachfront hotel with upscale amenities and services,” said Principal and Chief Investment Officer for Urgo Hotels, Kevin Urgo. “There is very little in the way of oceanfront product in this market, so we feel certain that it will help drive vacation travelers to the area.”
