WILMINGTON, DE—PM Hospitality Strategies (PMHS), along with a joint-venture ownership group comprised of Buccini/Pollin Group and Westport Capital, have opened the 180-room Westin Wilmington.
Connected to the Chase Center on the Riverfront, the hotel is the first Westin-branded hotel in the state and the first new-build hotel in Wilmington since 1980, according to the group. PMHS will operate the hotel under a long-term agreement.
“The opening is another important step in the revitalization of Wilmington's riverfront, and we are delighted to play a role," stated Joseph Bojanowski, president of PMHS.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver-designed hotel is within walking distance of such Fortune 500 companies as Barclay’s, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Capital One and DuPont. The hotel features a 2,100-sq.-ft. legal center with private offices and a hospitality area for meals. The center was purpose-built to support visiting legal teams that are participating in proceedings at the nearby Wilmington federal courthouse.

In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
