As work continues on the Florida Hospital Center Ice complex, more construction along Cypress Ridge Blvd. (off S.R. 56, near I-75) in Wesley Chapel is on the way, as a Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites will border the ice rink to the south, right across the street from the existing Hampton Inn & Suites.
According to documents filed with Pasco County, the four-story, 13,036-sq.-ft. Holiday Inn Express will be built on 2.57 acres in the Cypress Creek Development of Regional Impact, located at the northeast corner of the S.R. 56 and I-75 interchange. The hotel will feature 82 rooms, 83 parking spaces, a patio and a pool.
We’ve also heard that a Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott is planned for the south side of S.R. 56 (also east of I-75), although no further details were available at our press time.
