One of a Kind

One of a Kind Just a stone’s throw away from The Park at OWA sits Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority’s (CIEDA) newest hotel investment property, TownePlace Suites – Marriott at OWA. This is the most recent hotel development partnership project with Yelda Management. The recently opened 150 room hotel is an extended stay hotel, sitting next to the Foley Sports Complex and is just 9 miles from the Alabama beaches. The property boasts an indoor pool, free breakfast and game room. Each room offers a kitchen or kitchenette, allowing guests to save time and expense by having the option to make meals in-house. There are three room styles to choose from, and each offers a living/sitting area. Some rooms offer sleeper sofas for additional bed space, making it a perfect solution for larger families visiting the area.

And don't feel that you need to leave Fido behind because this hotel is pet-friendly. Additionally, it is surrounded by a multitude of restaurants and is just around the corner from Tanger Outlet, a mega shopping complex. All of this is sure to be a hit with the traveling sports teams slotted to compete at the neighboring Sports Complex and visitors to OWA.

"As the first hotel built on the OWA property, we are confident this hotel will be a huge success. Through our extensive economic analysis, we saw there was an immediate need for additional hotel rooms in the Foley area even before opening OWA. We fully expect TownePlace Suites to maintain high occupancy rates", said James T. Martin, CIEDA President/CEO CIEDA.

Mike Amaral, Yelda, Director of Development stated, "This property is a one-of-a-kind for Marriott. There isn’t another like it in the world. The new styling is considered a step above other TownePlace Suites. It is so unique that our corporate level executives decided to tour our facility due to its distinctive features."
