The $20 million hotel houses a total of 132 rooms, making it the 3rd SpringHill Suites and 7th Marriott property owned and run by High Hotels, which has fourteen properties in its overall portfolio. Its sister companies High Construction Co. and Greenfield Architects Limited designed and constructed the hotel.
The newly built SpringHill Suites is situated at the juncture of Route 309 and Interstate 78, approximately 11 miles away from the Lehigh Valley International Airport and only 5 minutes away from the Wildwater Kingdom and Dorney Park.
The $20 million hotel was projected to open its doors in the Stabler Corporate Center in Upper Saucon Township by December 15th. Titled SpringHill Suites Bethlehem Allentown/Center Valley, the all-suite hotel will flaunt high-end finishes, according to the hotel’s manager, Michael Williams. The hotel brand is in great demand, specifically for corporate travelers. As per Williams, 90% of their travelers are business-based, and the market is kind of underserved.
The weekends are expected to be teeming with travelers looking for a luxurious weekend getaway, along with sports teams and wedding guests. The hotel features a 380 square foot outdoor event area and gathering space, and a whopping 780 square feet meeting space.
The response that the team has received, both for the leisure and corporate community alike, has been overwhelming. The hotel will not feature a full restaurant, but it will have a limited starter meal menu and will also be serving complimentary breakfast, as well as a full bar. The hotel will also include a fitness center, free Wi-Fi connection, and a business center, among other useful facilities.
High Hotels Limited is a private company and is also a subsidiary of High Construction, which was responsible for building SpringHill Suites as part of their general contract. In addition to Homewood Suites, another hotel that opened a little distance away lacks the hotel product serving the market in that specific area, as per the High Hotels president, Russ Urban. Urban continued to state how the bigger room sizes (the suites are 23% bigger than anything else available in that area) are geared towards serving a specific market. The suite space also has some room for expansion, because High Hotels owns a few acres of land beside the hotel, adjacent from the main entrance.
Urban also expressed how the team has a dedicated second site, where they could open up a restaurant, a retail store, a building, an office or even another hotel. Currently, they are speaking with different restaurant and office users regarding the possibility of taking the new step.
