Irvine Could Get A New TownePlace Suites By Marriott
A new Marriott-branded hotel may soon be built at Irvine's gateway off the 405 Freeway.
The six-story hotel at 2652 White Road would have 165 rooms and sit on 1.6 acres. The Irvine Planning Commission, which discussed the hotel at a meeting earlier this month, is set to talk about the project and concerns about its design Thursday, the Orange County Register reports.
Commissioners were concerned the renderings of the building are too plain and wouldn't stand out among the surrounding buildings. The site is in the Irvine Business Complex near John Wayne Airport. [OCR]
