The 110-suite Residence Inn by Marriott in Louisville, Ky., is scheduled to open on July 31, 2018. Located at 401 Bullitt Lane, the all-suite Residence Inn Louisville East/Oxmoor is owned in a joint venture between Rockbridge and Musselman Hotels. Musselman led the development and will manage the hotel.

Located in East Louisville, near the Oxmoor Center and 10 miles from the Louisville International Airport, the Residence Inn Louisville East/Oxmoor offers access to St. Matthews, The Parklands of Floyds Fork and downtown Louisville.

“We are pleased with the continued growth of Residence Inn hotels in the Louisville area,” Diane Mayer, VP and global brand manager, Residence Inn, said in a statement. “When on the road for an extended period, our guests need space to spread out, maintain their life’s pace and restore their energy to help them maintain a healthy balance and routine while traveling. This new hotel offers them a seamless blend of modern style and functionality that allows them to settle in and thrive.”
