Work starts on SpringHill Suites hotel project in North Carolina
Marriott International and Shreeji Hotel Group have partnered to break ground on a major new upscale hotel development in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The 126-room SpringHill Suites scheme close to Charlotte Douglas International Airport is promising to deliver stylish décor and a new approach to the customer experience. We take a closer look at what’s being planned.
An all-suites hotel with easy access to the airport
Akshar Patel, CFO and partner at Shreeji Hotel Group, said: “The decision to partner with this brand felt natural, with the Marriott team working seamlessly alongside us to bring this project to life. SpringHill Suites by Marriott is a versatile brand that can simultaneously serve the high corporate demand and transient airport passengers, as the brand has perfected evolving to guest needs.”
The five-storey property will be situated at 2223 Cascade Pointe Boulevard, in close proximity to the nearby international airport, and across the street from a 1.7 million sq ft office park built by Childress Klein. The property is based on a 5.7-acre site, where there are also proposals to create a second luxury-brand hotel – details about this will be announced soon.
Strong ties with local artists
West Elm will provide furnishings for SpringHill Suites, employing unique and elegant designs throughout the property. Thanks to a collaboration with art community Society6, there will be a gallery in the lobby as well, showing work from local artists and showcasing the region’s culture to visitors.
Charlotte-based Shreeji Hotel Group is a privately run real estate investment, development and management company that runs eight hotels across North Carolina and South Carolina, with two more projects currently in the works. Over 200 SpringHill Suites are under development across North America, with another 458 properties currently open.
