True North Hotel Group has begun construction on a dual-branded Marriott project–a 91-suite Residence Inn and a 75-suite SpringHill Suites–in Fishkill, NY. Slated to open in the summer of 2016, the properties are located in the Westage Business Center along I-84 in Dutchess County.
The two hotels will share a general manager, sales department and adjoining lobbies with an intersecting bar and communal area. The properties will also share a swimming pool, fitness center, and meeting space to accommodate smaller meetings and events. Each brand will offer its complimentary daily breakfast.
The cost of the project is estimated to be $28 million. True North Hotel Group owns and will manage the hotel.
Brad Wiens, EVP and chief development officer for True North Hotel Group, identified three main business generators for the hotels: weekday stays dominated by corporate travel; weekend and weekday social tourism stemming from sports events, weddings, and bus tours; and long-term stays, primarily at the Residence Inn, for relocations, training and special projects. The hotels will also serve travelers visiting West Point, Vassar, seasonal festivals and the area’s culinary and visual arts attractions.
Both Residence Inn and SpringHill Suites participate in the Marriott Rewards® frequent travel program.
The Fishkill Residence Inn’s suites—with spaces for living, working and sleeping—will have fully-equipped kitchens with a coffeemaker, microwave oven and residential-sized appliances. Suited for stays of five nights or more, the hotel’s additional services will include free grocery delivery service, dry cleaning services, and an onsite guest laundry room; also, a business library and Sport Court.
On Monday through Wednesday evenings, the Residence Inn will host a reception with complimentary craft beers, wine and light bites in a social environment. The hotel will also provide a business library.
The Fishkill SpringHill Suites by Marriott will have suites with dedicated living, working and sleeping spaces. Business travelers can take advantage of a large, well-lit desk with ergonomic chair.
