    El Cajon city leaders will break ground Tuesday on a brand-new, $18 million hotel expected to open in the East County community next year.

    The groundbreaking ceremony will be held at the construction site of a Courtyard by Marriott hotel at 141 N. Magnolia Ave.

    The 70,000-square-foot, 120-room business hotel is an $18 million project being constructed by West-Tech Contracting. The four-story building boasts a swimming pool, spa, exercise room, indoor and outdoor dining, banquet facilities and other bells and whistles.

    The site will also include a 2,000-square-foot commercial lease space.

    Tuesday’s groundbreaking will be attended by El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells, city councilmembers and other local leaders. Representatives from the Marriott Corporation and the Excel Hotel Group will also be there.
