Developers broke ground May 2 on a 411-room hotel complex at 660 Summer Street near the South Boston/Seaport District waterfront.

The 14-story complex in Raymond L. Flynn Marine Industrial Park will include two hotels: A 245-room Hampton Inn and a 166-room Homewood Suites, both under the Hilton umbrella.

The inns—among the most anticipated new ones in the Boston area—will be aimed in part at people arriving at the nearby cruise-ship port and those who might have business at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

Developers Intercontinental Real Estate Corp. and Harbinger Development expect to open the hotels by mid-2020, by which time room rates will be clearer (though we’re going to go out on a limb here, and say they’ll be pretty competitive).
