A new addition to Duke Realty’s Anson development will provide lodging to travelers off I-65. A Hampton Inn hotel has begun construction recently in the business district and is set to open by August.
“Having first-class overnight accommodations in Anson has always been part of our plan and an amenity that we believe is important in making this a community with a broad range of conveniences,” Charlie Podell, senior vice president of Duke Realty’s Indiana operations, said.
The hotel will provide 92 rooms, spawning over 56,000 square feet. Amenities will include an indoor swimming pool, complimentary hot breakfast, workout facilities and wireless internet.
Developer Yagnash Patel has been involved with more than 60 similar projects worldwide and is looking forward to the convenience of the hotel’s location.
“There is definitely a need for quality lodging along this corridor of I-65 given the ongoing growth of Whitestown and Zionsville and the increased traffic counts between Indianapolis and Chicago,” Patel said. “Now, area residents and businesses can find comfortable and affordable rooms nearby when they need guest lodging.”
Hampton Inn is a Hilton-Worldwide brand hotel.
“Hampton Inn is an excellent brand with a solid reputation and a welcome addition to the Anson community,” Podell said.
The four-story hotel will be the first hotel in the 1,700-acre Anson district, located in southeast Boone County. It will add to the growing variety of services already available there, including businesses, housing options, places of worship and medical facilities.
