Embassy Suites by Hilton Celebrates Groundbreaking of New Hotel in Indiana
Property Expected to be the Third Hotel for the Brand in the Greater Indianapolis Area
August 19, 2016 // Franchising.com // INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. and MCLEAN, Va. – Embassy Suites by Hilton, a global brand of upscale, all-suite hotels from Hilton (NYSE: HLT), and Sun Development & Management Corporation celebrated the groundbreaking of the Embassy Suites by Hilton Indianapolis/Noblesville. Slated to open in late 2017, this property is expected to be the third for the brand in the state of Indiana.
Local officials, including the City of Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear, and members of the business community joined Global Head of Embassy Suites, Alan Roberts and Chief Executive Officer of Sun Development & Management Corporation, Bharat Patel; Director of Economic Development for the City of Noblesville, Judi Johnson; and Executive Director of Hamilton County Tourism, Brenda Myers for the symbolic ceremony. Once construction is complete, the hotel will be comprised of seven stories and 192 spacious suites, offering guests access to an indoor pool and on-site restaurant. The hotel will also feature a state-of-the-art conference center with nearly 21,000 square feet of versatile meeting and function space that can accommodate up to 2,000 attendees for business and social events.
"We are excited for Embassy Suites to break ground on this catalyst project that will bring more amenities, jobs, out-of-town visitors and business guests to the City of Noblesville," said Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear. "Embassy Suite’s high-end hotel and conference center is a perfect complement to our nearby high-tech business parks and the vibrant retail village in and around Hamilton Town Center. With its opening planned for late 2017, Noblesville will have achieved one of its top objectives for the vision we've been working toward at Exit 210."
Located in Noblesville, just north of Indianapolis, the property is in close proximity to several corporate headquarters including Nestlé, Roche Diagnostics Corporation, SMC Corporation of America, Pharmakon Pharmaceuticals and Zavacor Molecular. Leisure travelers will also enjoy the hotel’s ideal location, just a short drive away from many major attractions in the greater Indianapolis area including Klipsch Music Center, the Indiana Transportation Museum and White River State Park, Indiana’s only urban state park.
"The Indianapolis metro area attracts more than 26 million visitors* every year with its mix of popular attractions and major business headquarters, creating a need for hotels like Embassy Suites that offer more space, amenities and value for guests,” said Alan Roberts, global head of Embassy Suites by Hilton. “Sun Development & Management Corporation understands our brand and its unique offering, and we look forward to continuing to grow our relationship and our presence in Indiana with them.”
The new hotel will feature Embassy Suites’ design concept, Design Option III, which allows for a variety of suite-styles to meet guest and developer needs, a modern, open-air atrium, and an enhanced guest experience with more natural light throughout the hotel. The concept’s flexibility allows for increased efficiencies across construction and operational costs, while remaining true to the brand’s pillars.
"We are thrilled to continue to grow our portfolio with Embassy Suites and Hilton, and today we celebrate the start of our fifth hotel together," said Chris Mayer, president of Sun Development & Management Corporation, "The hotel’s full service, upscale offering will be a welcome addition in the Noblesville market, and will provide guests with a convenient and comfortable stay while on the road.”
Other hotels that Embassy Suites and Sun Development & Management Corporation have opened include Embassy Suites by Hilton Indianapolis North, Ind.; Embassy Suites by Hilton Ontario Airport, Calif.; Embassy Suites by Hilton Palmdale, Calif.; and Embassy Suites by Hilton Newark Airport, N.J.
Embassy Suites by Hilton Indianapolis/Noblesville will offer all of the brand’s signature amenities, including free made-to-order breakfast each morning, a complimentary two-hour Evening Reception** with drinks and snacks, and suites with a separate living area, formal sleeping area, and a bar fitted with a microwave and refrigerator.
