Construction on a new 142-room 5-story Hampton Inn & Suites hotel will begin this spring in the Mid Towne Village development in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Third Coast Development announced the new hotel will be managed by Lodgco Management, a Mount Pleasant firm that owns and operates 15 hotels in central and western Michigan, including a 94-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites located behind the Green Ridge Square Shopping Center in Walker.
"We believe the Hampton Inn & Suites property will become instantly beneficial to the growing Mid Towne portion of Michigan Street,” said Dave Levitt, a partner with Third Coast, which bought up houses in an aging residential neighborhood to create the village, which includes the Women’s Health Center, Park Row Condos and 545 Michigan Street, a mixed-use office and restaurant building.
The Hampton Inn & Suites will also offer guests a complimentary hot breakfast, free internet, a multi-level parking garage, indoor pool, fitness center and other amenities.
The $27 million hotel project originally was proposed in 2008 and then shelved when credit dried up at the outset of the Great Recession. It was one of four pending hotel projects canceled in Grand Rapids that year.
