Hampton Inn New Smyrna Beach Reopens After Hurricane Ian Damage

The Hampton Inn New Smyrna Beach, which has been closed since Hurricane Ian in late September reopened to guests on Friday, December 2. The 112-room property which is owned by Key International of Miami, Florida, and managed by LBA Hospitality of Dothan, Alabama underwent restorations to its first floor due to damage caused by the devastating storm.

The renovations include new carpeting, tile, furnishings, and drywall throughout the lobby, fitness center, breakfast area, meeting space, business center, and first-floor guestrooms. The necessary upgrades were completed just in time for Light up Flagler, an annual event in New Smyrna Beach sponsored by local businesses to welcome in the holidays.

“I am extremely proud of the hotel team and thankful for the contractors that worked tirelessly to reopen the hotel after the severe damage caused by Hurricane Ian,” said Beau Benton, President, LBA Hospitality. “Our goal was to get the hotel fully restored and ready to welcome our loyal guests in time for the holiday season.  I am excited that we have met that goal and we can once again spread the light and warmth of hospitality!”

The Hampton Inn New Smyrna Beach is conveniently located on historic Flagler Avenue and within walking distance of the white sandy beaches and the city’s thriving business district. Amenities include a complimentary breakfast, a sparkling outdoor pool, and free Wi-Fi. The hotel features unique architecture and a charming interior, atypical of the Hampton Inn brand, aligning perfectly with the historic and picturesque coastal city of New Smyrna Beach.

“Our team at this hotel has done an incredible job at remaining resilient and coming back even stronger after a devastating event,” says Executive Vice President of Hospitality for Key International, Shawn Gracey. “We’re proud to open our doors back up and to offer an improved experience to our guests.”
