A Roanoke County development site will include a hotel.
The developers of South Peak announced plans Thursday for a 117-room Hilton Garden Inn Hotel.
The hotel, which will cost $15 million to build, will include a 2,000 square-foot conference/meeting space, 1,000 square feet of breakout space, a fifth-floor conference room with mountain views, a full-service restaurant and lounge, and fireplaces in 40 guest rooms.
The hotel is expected to open in Spring 2014.
“This hotel brings a new look and feel to Roanoke,” Hunter Smith, president of Smith/Packett, which is developing South Peak, wrote in a news release. “The hotel will have the same arts and crafts design as The Peaks residences. It’s part of our plan to carry the same architectural theme throughout the South Peak project.”
The Hilton Garden Inn will be located below The Peaks condominiums.
A groundbreaking for the hotel is planned for March or April 2013.
“This development in Roanoke is a perfect place for a Hilton Garden Inn,” Adrian Kurre, Global Head of Hilton Garden Inn wrote in a news release. “As an award-winning upscale hotel brand, Hilton Garden Inn caters to both business and leisure travelers who are seeking upscale, yet affordable accommodations in Roanoke.”
