My Place begins development on first Illinois hotel

The property will be located 40 miles from downtown Chicago.

My Place marked yet another state entry with the My Place Hotel-North Aurora, Ill. Construction has commenced on the three-story, 63-guestroom hotel, located less than five miles from downtown Aurora and 40 miles from downtown Chicago.

The property is independently owned by N.A. Lodging 1, a group of local members who collectively own or manage commercial real estate holdings in the greater Chicagoland area. The group’s focus includes manufacturing, mixed-use and retail spaces. N.A. Lodging principal Ed Roberts said the hotel is expected to open spring of 2018. 

Terry Kline, My Place EVP of franchise sales and development, said My Place is excited to welcome N.A. Lodging as a new franchise partner in addition to the territorial milestone on the horizon. “Ed and his partners bring an extensive portfolio of development experience into this project and will undoubtedly add great value to the community as well as our franchise family,” he said in a statement.
