ATLANTA, GA—Hotel Equities has been selected to manage the 107-room Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel in St. Louis, MO.
This marks Hotel Equities’ strong entry into the Midwest and Missouri with their first hotel in the Home2 Suites brand, according to the company. The property is set to break ground in May 2014 and open in 2015. The Above All Development group of St. Louis, Missouri will develop the property.
“We are extremely excited to partner with Above All Development group of St. Louis, Missouri on their Home2 Suites by Hilton,” said Joe Reardon, VP of business development for HE. “Our cultures align in many ways and we feel this is a strong partnership, not only with great owners, but a great brand. The hotel offers a unique and ‘hip’ extended-stay experience for savvy, value-oriented business and leisure travelers. With our operational expertise in select-service and extended-stay space, we are encouraged about delivering an excellent return for our investors.”
The Home2 Suites site is located in the heart of the Forest Park/Central West End area of St. Louis. Nearby attractions include Washington University, the Washington University Medical Center, St. Louis University, Barnes Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and the 1,293-acre Forest Park.
The hotel will offer Home2 Suites amenities standard in all properties, such as the Oasis lobby area, the Home2 MKT for grab-and-go items, the Spin2 Cycle (a combined laundry and fitness area), and the free continental breakfast at the Inspired Table that includes a variety of morning selections like a hot breakfast sandwich. The hotel will also have an outdoor saline pool and patio with gas grills and a fire pit for guests' use.
