Miami-based Morlin Hospitality Group will hold  a ground-breaking ceremony Wednesday for a Residence Inn by Marriott hotel in Coconut Creek.

The six-story, 105-room, extended-stay hotel will be Morlin’s second in Coconut Creek, where in 2014 the company opened a Hampton Inn & Suites with the same number of rooms at 5740 North State Road 7.

The nearby construction site of the Residence Inn by Marriott is 5730 North State Road 7. The estimated cost of the development is about $21 million. Morlin had expected to start construction of the hotel by the end of 2016.

Seth Fellman, president and chief executive officer of Morlin, told the Sun-Sentinel that getting permits for the Residence Inn project took longer than expected. [Sun-Sentinel] — Mike Seemuth
