ONE DAYTONA, the proposed world-class mixed-use and entertainment destination across from Daytona International Speedway, selected Shaner Hotels and Prime Hospitality Group (PHG) as its hotel partners. Shaner Hotels and PHG are planning a 145-room, full-service boutique property and are working with global hospitality leader Marriott International to bring an exclusive Marriott Autograph Collection® hotel to Daytona Beach and ONE DAYTONA. Projected to open in 2016 with Bass Pro Shops® and Cobb Theatres, among other tenants, ONE DAYTONA is a joint venture between International Speedway Corporation (ISC) and Jacoby Development.
“We’re very excited about featuring an upscale, full-service boutique hotel as part of the ONE DAYTONA experience,” said ISC CEO Lesa France Kennedy. “This type of property reiterates our commitment to offering an unparalleled hospitality experience for our fans, visitors and residents in 2016.”
The partnership between Shaner Hotels, one of the foremost owner-operator companies in the hospitality industry and PHG, a premier hotel developer in Florida, will offer a new level of sophistication and add to the transformation along International Speedway Boulevard.
“Delivering an exceptional guest experience in all facets of ONE DAYTONA has been a goal from day one and our entire team is excited to announce this partnership,” said Jacoby Development Managing Partner Brian Leary. “Having the opportunity to work with the gold standard in the business – Marriott – and with proven partners such as Shaner and Prime, continues our model of assembling the best possible team to make ONE DAYTONA a reality in 2016.”
"Daytona Beach is already the ‘World’s Most Famous Beach’ and when you add the $400 million DAYTONA Rising project underway at the Speedway to the incredible vision of ONE DAYTONA, we’re extremely proud to be a part of that vision. The strong fundamentals of a thriving visitor, student and business destination is a perfect fit for our full-service strategy and approach to delivering a great guest experience," said Plato Ghinos, President, Shaner Hotels Group. “We feel this is the right product at the right time and we look forward to creating a signature property at ONE DAYTONA that represents the development’s famed motorsports heritage as well as its close proximity to the famous 23 miles of beach.”

Lease agreements have been executed with Bass Pro Shops®, America’s most popular outdoor store, and Cobb Theatres, the highly respected Southeastern-based exhibitor, as anchor tenants of ONE DAYTONA. Terms have been reached with other businesses and announcements on new tenants are forthcoming. These additional businesses will further enhance the exciting environment of ONE DAYTONA.
