New $35M Embassy Suites slated for San Antonio

Who says new-build hotel projects are dead? According to the San Antonio Business Journal, an Embassy Suites hotel will be developed at Brooks City Base in Southeast San Antonio after the Brooks City Base board of directors and Embassy Suites Franchise Executive Committee reached an agreement that way for the 155-room hotel get underway.

The planned Embassy Suites-Brooks City Base will reportedly also have 8,000-square-feet of conference and event space and a restaurant.

The new hotel is slated to open in 2016.

"This will be the premier hotel and event facility south of downtown San Antonio and will truly serve the entire region," Brooks City Base President and CEO Leo Gomez told the Business Journal. "It will be an enormous asset to this growing community."

Construction on the roughly $35-million project is expected to begin in April.

The developer is Phoenix Hospitality Group.
