Hilton opens Home2 Suites in Florida's The Villages

Hilton has opened the latest property in its All Suites portfolio. The Home2 Suites by Hilton Wildwood-The Villages (Fla.) is the first extended-stay all-suite hotel in the area, according to the brand. 

The hotel was developed and is owned by Tampa-based commercial real estate firm, Liberty Group. Base4 served as the architect for the project with Wichman Construction handling construction. McKibbon Hospitality manages and operates the hotel, having appointed longtime leader James House as general manager and Kyle Knapp as director of sales.

The hotel has 96 studio and one-bedroom suites across four floors. Each guest suite has a kitchen with a microwave, coffee maker and full-size refrigerator as well as assorted cookware and dishware. 

In addition to eco-friendly accommodations, Home2 Suites Wildwood-The Villages has several public spaces, such as the lobby area, a communal eating space, an in-house market, and 24-hour business center. The brand’s 24-hour combined fitness and laundry center, Spin2 Cycle, is located just off of the lobby. The hotel also has an eco-friendly saline pool and outdoor lounge with furniture, fire pits and grills.

“We are pleased to officially introduce Home2 Suites Wildwood-The Villages, providing an all-new attractive extended-stay lodging option for travelers seeking a customizable and comfortable stay,” Liberty Group CEO Punit Shah said in a statement. “Watching this project come to life and contributing to Wildwood and The Villages’ continued growth and development has been extremely rewarding, and we look forward to a successful future serving this thriving community.”
