lf marriottLane Field is located at 900 West Broadway in the North Embarcadero area of San Diego. The site is bound by West Broadway to the south, Harbor Drive to the west, and Pacific Highway to the east. The site had been a surface parking lot for cruise and general public parking since the 1960s and was formerly a baseball stadium known as "Lane Field" and the home of the Pacific Coast League Padres from 1936 to 1957.

A developer, Lane Field San Diego Developers, a collaboration between Portman Holdings, Hensel Phelps and Lankford & Associates, worked with the Port to develop the majority of the site into a 400-room, dual-branded hotel in a single building on the northern portion of the site fronting Pacific Highway and an approximately 2-acre public park on the western portion fronting Harbor Drive.

Construction of the Lane Field North Hotel Project began in May 2014 and it opened for business at the end of February 2016 as the SpringHill Suites & Residence Inn San Diego Downtown/Bayfront. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on April 7, 2016, and was attended by City of San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, City of San Diego Councilmember Todd Gloria, Port Board Chairman Marshall Merrifield, and executives from Marriott and Lane Field San Diego Developers.

The developers also built Lane Field Park, which opened on March 16, 2015.

The developers are also building a 400-room InterContinental Hotel on the Lane Field South site. Construction on this project began in June 2016.  

On November 29, 2017, the Port of San Diego, Lane Field San Diego Developers, community leaders and stakeholders celebrated the topping off of the InterContinental San Diego Hotel.  The event featrued a ceremonial raising of the flag to the top of the hotel, along with the project's last load of concrete. The hotel is scheduled to be completed in August 2018 and open to the public in September 2018.

The approval was given at the May 12, 2015 Board of Port Commissioners meeting.

Located on the corner of West Broadway and North Harbor Drive in the North Embarcadero area of San Diego, the Lane Field South site is adjacent to the Lane Field North Hotel project, which is currently under construction.
