First Hospitality Group and Louisville-based Weyland Ventures have started construction on the new Home2 Suites by Hilton – Louisville / Medical District. Studio A Architecture is the architect for the project, while Sabak, Wilson, & Lingo Inc., Schaefer Inc., and Interior Image Group are providing engineering and interior design services. Bosse Mattingly Constructors is serving as the general contractor on the project.
The Home2 Suites by Hilton will add 100 guestrooms to the Nulu district. Designed as a five-story building, the new hotel will have approximately 750 square feet of meeting space, a “Spin2Cycle” fitness center, pool, and a guest laundry facility. The lobby will have an “Oasis” space, as well as a 24/7 convenience market, Home2 Mkt. The rooms will have a pullout sofa, as well as a “working wall” that will serve as a kitchenette and desk. Each guestroom will also have a half-size refrigerator, microwave, sink and dishwasher, and cookware and china/glassware.
The property is slated for completion in June 2017.
The Home2 Suites by Hilton – Louisville / Medical District is in Nulu, an area in Louisville known for its art galleries, specialty stores, antique shops and restaurants. The hotel is also near a number of local attractions, including Churchill Downs, Louisville Gardens, Louisville Palace, Louisville Science Center and the Louisville Slugger Museum.
