Embassy Suites Hotel at Cavalier Oceanfront Resort
Designed as a signature piece of the Cavalier Oceanfront Resort complex, the new $47M Embassy Suites Hotel At Cavalier Oceanfront Resort offers direct access to the Virginia Beach boardwalk and oceanfront beach access.
Speight Marshall Francis served as Structural Engineer of Record and Agent 1 Special Inspector for the new hotel developed by Gold Key/PHR Resorts, a 12-story high-rise complex with 158 luxury hotel rooms and 15,000 square feet of ground-level conference, restaurant, and other amenity space. The 242,000 square foot hotel boasts an indoor pool with operable doors allowing indoor/outdoor access to the sprawling outdoor pool, lounge amenities, and oceanside tiki bar. Extending 130 feet above ground level, the hotel offers direct, stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean as all of the units consist of large, cantilevered, and uniquely profiled exterior balconies. Transfer girders at the 3rd floor supporting 11 floors above allow for a wide-open, two-story grand ballroom without intrusive columns in the open space. Currently under construction, the luxury hotel will soon be a key piece of the Virginia Beach oceanfront skyline with a scheduled completion date of late 2022.
