Rumors are circulating that Tidewater Hotels, owners of the Courtyard Marriott in Carolina Beach, are in talks to sell some or all of their hotel holdings. In addition, Tidewater are the ones that are planning to construct a Fairfield Inn adjacent to the Courtyard Marriott. So for now, the future of the Fairfield Inn project is in question. But even if the sale does proceed, one can only hope that the new owners will see the value of constructing a branded hotel at that location.
In other hotel news, the initial phase of construction of the Hilton Garden Inn should begin next week.
