Shoreline Blvd. is an extended-stay hotel, providing kitchens and grocery deliveries. Construction should be complete in time for the hotel to open early this summer.
Residence Inn is part of the Marriott hotel chain, which is also opening a new Fairfield Inn and Suites at South Padre Island Drive and Old Brownsville Road. That property also should be ready for in time for summer guests.
The downtown property features an outdoor heated pool, a full bar, a fitness center, meeting rooms, and daily complimentary breakfasts. The 98,000-square-foot structure will stand five stories and be located on 2 acres that were previously home to a vacant car lot and abandoned buildings.
When the Residence Inn and the 71-room Fairfield Inn open this summer, Marriott will have six properties in Corpus Christi.
Marriott International purchased the Residence Inn branch in 1987. The brand, which now has more than 700 facilities worldwide, began in 1975 in Wichita, Kansas, introducing the extended-stay concept into the hotel marketplace.
