For those of you who are wondering what the new building on the corner of International Parkway with HE Thomas Boulevard (across from Colonial Towne Park) will be, it is one of Starwood Hotels newest project in Central Florida, a brand new Westin. This upscale hotel will feature over 250 rooms and great amenities.
It seems like whoever did the research for Westin Hotels sees great potential in the area. I totally agree and hope to see lots of visitors from other cities, states, and countries explore our beautiful area 🙂
The hotel is scheduled to open November 2nd, 2009.
