Comfort Suites Hotel Building Update - Feb 4, 2009

Leland today has no hotels. Within the next year or two there will be four. The first, a Comfort Suites Hotel, is going up next door from our office. The grand opening is on schedule for May 1st. Today I asked Project Superintendent Joe Stephenson for a tour of his work in progress and he graciously showed our Office Manager Kari Essig and me around. The hotel is being built by Harold K. Jordan & Co., Inc. general contractors. The manager will be Barry Eagle. I took the photo below while we were walkling to the building. (Is this what they mean by a "green" building?)

We went in the north end of the building. In the photo below looks from back to front down the central hallway.

This shot isn't too interesting, just looks from one room through the wall to others. They start putting up sheetrock next week.

Originally planned for two meeting rooms, the hotel is going to have one 50-person capacity room.

There will also be an inground pool.

And an exercise area adjacent to the pool.

Here's a shot of the lobby, looking across from what will eventually be the breakfast/lounge area.

The hotel will be on the far end of business upscale for the Choice Hotel's Comfort Suites Hotel line. There will be 106 rooms in all.
So thanks again for the tour, Joe.
