New Marriott Hotel Planned For The Southcoast
If all goes as planned, the Southcoast will see a new four story, 90 room suite-style hotel. LeFrance Hospitality has proposed a TownPlace Suites Marriott for Westport..
According to their Facebook page, the hotel would be geared for those looking for an extended stay. The plan is for a kitchenette in every room, along with a pool, fitness center and laundry facilities. The new Marriott would be located near White's of Westport and the Hampton Inn.
LeFrance Hospitality is currently in talks with the Town of Westport and the Fall River Public Utilties Department. They are seeking improvements to the city's water and sewer infrastructure, in order for the hotel to tie into those systems. There ios also a railroad track on the property that would need to be relocated.
According to the LeFrance FaceBook page, the plan has received a positive endorsement from the Westport Planning Board.
