CLEARWATER BEACH, FL—Real estate investment and development company Key International has opened a new Marriott dual-branded Residence Inn—140 suites—and SpringHill Suites Clearwater Beach—115 suites here. LBA Hospitality will oversee the properties.

Located at 309 Coronado Dr., the hotels have oversized guestrooms with a coastal vibe, flexible living, working and sleeping space, views of Clearwater Bay and a wide array of shared amenities, according to the company.

Amenities include mobile check-in/checkout, a mix of suite types with in-room Smart TVs, daily complimentary breakfast, shared outdoor swimming pool with expanded deck, fitness center, meeting space, 24/7 business center, guest laundry, 24-hour market and valet/covered parking.
