SOMERVILLE, MA—Hay Creek Hotels has been selected to manage a new upscale, independent hotel here, as well as assist in its development.
Hay Creek will work in collaboration with commercial developers Lou Makrigiannis and Young Construction, and will break ground on the hotel project in the spring.
The 45-room, full-service hotel will be located at 371 Beacon St. on the Somerville-Cambridge border, three blocks from the Porter Square area and a short walk to the campuses of both Leslie and Harvard Universities.
The yet-to-be-named hotel will feature small meeting facilities for business and social functions and a street level restaurant and bar.
“The new hotel will be a welcome addition to Somerville,” stated Norman MacLeod, founder and president of Hay Creek Hotels. “Somerville is a diverse mix of young, single residents, students and business people; the city is ideal for a small, upscale independent hotel and high-quality authentic bistro style restaurant and bar.”
The new hotel will be a “sister” property to the Porter Square Hotel, which also will be operated by Hay Creek when it opens in spring.
