Home2 Suites by Hilton Melbourne Viera, an 118-room, extended-stay hotel for corporate travelers and families, opened Sept. 25 near The Avenue Viera.
The all-suite, four-story hotel at 2404 Metfield Drive features kitchenettes in every suite, free parking, free hot breakfast and in-room and lobby WiFi, an indoor, sustainable and eco-friendly saltwater pool, an oversized patio, outdoor seating, a fire pit and grills, a fitness center, a business center and an on-site restaurant.
However, the pool, fitness center, business center and free breakfast were not immediately available due to COVID-19.
The pet-friendly hotel is near the USSSA Space Coast Complex and Duran Golf Club. Studios begin at 323 square feet and one-bedroom suites at 491 square feet.
Upon entering into the lobby, guests are greeted by a communal space dubbed
Developed by Sycamore Investment Group, the Home2 Suites is adjacent to a Fairfield Inn and Suites also developed by the investment group. American Momentum Bank provided a $13,731,250 construction loan to assist with financing the project’s estimated $19 million in construction costs.
The Viera location is the third Home2 Suites hotel to open in Brevard County in 2020. A 108-room Home2 Suites opened near Port Canaveral and an 87-room hotel opened in Palm Bay. Some 350 hotels already have opened and Hilton plans to open another 445 properties.
"Our other two properties in the area have performed well, and the timing was right to bring a new Hilton product to market in this area," Ronak Jasani, executive vice president, Sycamore Investment Group, stated in a press release. "With close proximity to The Avenue shopping center, this is an ideal site for an extended-stay hotel and offers our guests access to dining and entertainment just steps away from the property."
The three hotels are among nine new properties that have either opened or are close to opening in Brevard County in 2020. The new locations for Hampton Inn, Hyatt Place, Springhill Suites and Extended Stay will increase the county’s total number of hotel rooms to more than 10,200 rooms, an 11.3 percent increase despite the pandemic.
"The addition of new hotel inventory is always an exciting prospect for a community, but to add nine properties in one year is unprecedented for us," Peter Cranis, executive director of the Space Coast Office of Tourism, stated in a press release. "It is a real testament to the resilience of our economy, even in the face of COVID. These new properties will provide safe, family-oriented options to stay up and down the Space Coast. We think we have exactly what families want right now, which is wide-open spaces and plenty of beach for all."
