Jetty Park Hotel?
There’s no question that this hotel would be both beautiful and beneficial to the Cocoa Beach economy – the question is whether or not the residents of Cocoa Beach want to see another hotel go up?
According to Florida Today, hotel owner , Tom Hermansen, proposed the hotel more than a year ago. Hermansen is president of Ocean Partners Hospitality, which owns and operates four Cocoa Beach hotels: the Best Western Oceanfront, Courtyard by Marriott, Days Inn and Hampton Inn.
Jetty Park spans approximately 45 acres and is public land. Hermansen offered to buy 9.6 acres to build a hotel complex with access to the beach and park. As of today, the deal continues to be negotiated.
