Daytona Beach Opens First Hotel Next to Famed Speedway



WHY IT RATES: This new property will give racing fans a place to stay, while also catering to all types of travelers.—Mia Taylor, TravelPulse Senior Writer

Daytona Beach’s first full-service hotel situated next to the famed Daytona International Speedway is slated to open this spring as The DAYTONA, an Autograph Collection property.

The modern, boutique hotel will anchor the new retail, dining, and entertainment destination, ONE DAYTONA while offering access to the city’s hottest attractions.

MORE Hotel & Resort

The six-story, new-build hotel will feature a sleek and modern design that pays homage to Daytona’s iconic motorsports history with amenities that include 144 guest rooms, a full-service restaurant & bar, on-site shopping, a heated pool with private cabanas, an outdoor fire pit, fitness center, and more than 10,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

A second-floor lobby area will feature “The Grid,” where show cars will be on display year-round, while an outdoor terrace overlooking the high-energy Victory Circle will offer prime people-watching and viewing for live entertainment and Vegas-like synchronized fountain shows.

Fitness options will include bicycle rentals and a state-of-the-art fitness center overlooking the property’s resort-style swimming pool.

“The DAYTONA will definitely be a must for racing enthusiasts traveling to the Daytona Beach area,” said General Manager Michael Melendez, who has more than a decade of experience with Marriott hotels, including French Leave Resort in Eleuthera and Key Largo’s Playa Largo Resort & Spa. “But we’re going to cater to much more than just racing fans.

The DAYTONA experience will put guests in touch with the best the area has to offer, from the beaches to Daytona International Speedway and everything in between, while offering a stylish and sophisticated escape to retreat to at the end of the day. Our exclusive location at ONE DAYTONA also means guests will have access to a variety of additional dining, retail and lifestyle options, with everything they need just steps away.”

Located just a mile from the Daytona Beach International Airport and less than five miles from ‘The World’s Most Famous Beach,’ the property will offer complimentary airport shuttle service and easy accessibility to area attractions, including the speedway, local beaches, museums, outdoor recreation, and more.

Nightly rates at The DAYTONA will start at $175, fluctuating based on season.
