Today, the True North Hotel Group Incorporated and Bridgeport Landing Development announced exciting news: a new hotel with well-known national brand, Marriott, will be built at Steelpointe Harbor. Bridgeport, Connecticut’s largest city, has been without a hotel since the Bridgeport Holiday Inn closed in January of 2022.

True North Hotel Group Inc. and Bridgeport Landing Development have finalized a deal to bring a Residence Inn by Marriott to Steelpointe. The hotel will feature approximately 135 rooms and be located between East Main Street and Pembroke, bordering Stratford Avenue. Construction on the new hotel will commence in 2025.

Steelpointe developer Bobby Christoph, Jr. stated, “I’m so proud to be able to partner with the True North Hotel Group Inc. and Marriott to bring a new, state-of-the-art hotel to Steelpointe. Bridgeport deserves its own hotel, and I’m so glad we will be building it here on-site. With construction underway on our first 400 plus units of housing and retail, it’s exciting to begin this next development phase.”

Chris Harlow, Vice President of Development for True North Hotel Group Inc. added, “This is a great development; we are thrilled to be coming to Steelpointe Harbor. This hotel will provide a first-class experience for our guests and help bring more visitors to the waterfront and this inviting harbor-side community. Entertainment venues such as Bass Pro Shops and a mix of residential, restaurant, retail, and commercial uses create a diverse, livable, pedestrian-friendly environment. All of this is just a stroll away from trains, a new amphitheater, and an arena. We are confident that this hotel will be well received by visitors and are proud to be coming to the heart of Bridgeport’s renaissance to serve the community and the region.”

Mayor Joe Ganim of Bridgeport said, “I want to extend my gratitude to True North Hotel Group Inc. for choosing Bridgeport as its newest destination for a Marriott Residence hotel. Having a Marriott company plant a flag in Bridgeport is a huge validation of the progress and visible recognition that Bridgeport is ‘on the move’, attracting First Class international companies to invest here. This new development will be a great addition to Bridgeport and will complement the housing that is currently under construction at Steelpointe Harbor. Our waterfront is truly remarkable, and we look forward to sharing a piece of Bridgeport’s cultural beauty with visitors.”
