Redondo Beach, CA — (April 5, 2013) – The City of Redondo Beach will add a 147-room Hilton Garden Inn and a 172-room Residence Inn by Marriott at the corner of Marine Avenue and I-405 East. Groundbreaking ceremonies with Redondo Beach Mayor Mike Gin and other city dignitaries will be held on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 to celebrate the commencement of construction.
