McNeill will add lunch to the menu for the on-site Garden Grille, which had previously served only breakfast and dinner and will also add an outdoor terrace area, upgrade fitness center equipment, 40-inch TVs in the guestrooms and updated soft goods in the guestrooms, corridors and meeting rooms. 

The Hampton Inn & Suites in West Jordan has a total of 106 guestrooms and suites. It sits just south of downtown Salt Lake City and is adjacent to Jordan Landing, a 500-acre master-planned community with retail, office and residential units. The hotel includes a 24-hour business center, a fully equipped fitness center, an indoor pool and whirlpool and more than 1,900 square feet of meeting space. McNeill will upgrade the lobby and public area’s soft goods, make cosmetic improvements to the exterior, replace fitness room equipment and update softgoods and select casegoods in the guestrooms.

“We see these acquisitions a major step in our company’s evolution,” Ricketts said in a statement. “With the Hilton Garden Inn we will be adding a new flag to our portfolio and expansion into the Mountain states of Idaho and Utah greatly expands our geographic presence.”

“This is an exciting time for us,” Phillip McNeill, CEO of McNeill Hotel Company, said in a statement. “In only 18 months we have more than doubled the size of our portfolio, which is now up to 17 hotels. The growth has been the result of both acquisitions and new construction and we will continue to look for strategic opportunities on both fronts as we look ahead to 2018.”
