My Place Hotels of America began development on Michigan’s second My Place Hotel. Community members and local leaders of Wixom convened for the groundbreaking at 48881 Alpha Drive where construction has commenced on the three-story, 64-unit hotel. As the newest addition to West Detroit’s active I-96 corridor, the My Place Hotel in Wixom is expected to open early 2019.

The new hotel is independently owned by Wixom Hotel Partners, and operated by Legacy Management. Having developed in markets such as Kansas City and Nashville, Wixom Hotel Partners VP Eric Myers said he was drawn to the area’s energy and looks forward to satisfying the needs of a growing community.

“We are excited to address an underserved segment in this vibrant, growing community,” Myers said in a statement. “By capturing this opportunity, we join a great mix of businesses and services nearby while adding to the collective value and experience for Wixom’s diverse guests. Satisfying the area’s current and future lodging needs with the same level of comfort, quality and value I seek on the road is an exciting reality. I can’t wait to share that with everyone celebrating with us here today.”
