Stadium developer Trace Village today announced two hotels that will come into development with 199 rooms in total.
The two hotels will be a Hilton Homewood Suites 10.0 and a Hilton Garden Inn, with a shared lobby, developer Will Kadish said in a press release. The Homewood Suites will be an extended stay hotel offering kitchenettes in each of the 99 rooms that will be there, and the Hilton Garden Inn will offer 100 rooms, catering more to guests staying one to two nights, the developer said.
âI am delighted to keep my promise to bring an upscale hotel brand to the city of Hoover and I am excited about the endless opportunities this concept hotel combo will offer,â Kadish said in the press release. âThe Trace Village stadium has turned out to be a local favorite for shopping and dining, and now we can also accommodate guests and visitors from out of town.â
The hotels will span 4.7 acres at the south end of the property, just east of the Big Whiskey American Restaurant and Bar and along Emery Drive West, which connects to Stadium Trace Parkway.
Southern Hospitality Services is developing the property and plans to lead the way in the spring of 2022, according to Broad Metro, the development company.
The exact design of the combination hotels has not been released, but Hilton Garden Inns typically include a full-service restaurant and bar with made-to-order food and craft cocktails. Homewood Suites hotels often offer outdoor social spaces such as fireplaces, outdoor kitchens, upscale picnic tables, and recreation areas.
