150-room hotel planned for Destin Commons

Special to The Log

Turnberry Associates has announced plans to build a 150-room select service hotel in Destin. A nationally branded property, the new hotel will be connected to Destin Commons, Northwest Florida’s premier open-air lifestyle center, according to a press release.

The hotel will be developed and managed by Turnberry Associates Hospitality Division. Turnberry also owns and manages Destin Commons.

“Just as Destin Commons has become a premier Northwest Florida destination, we believe this new hotel will be uniquely positioned to serve the growing number of visitors to this area and its pristine beaches,” said Turnberry Associates Hospitality Division Vice President Bill Gorman.

According to Gorman, the hotel will be located adjacent to SR 293/Danny Wuerffel Way and feature approximately 5,000 square feet of meeting space for corporate meetings and social functions.

Turnberry Associates expects to break ground on the hotel in spring 2016, with construction scheduled to be completed in about 18 months.

Announcements about the hotel’s brand and additional amenities will be shared in the coming months. For further information, contact Turnberry Associates Hospitality Division Vice President Bill Gorman, (305) 937-6262.
