On May 18, city officials and Holladay Properties employees attended a groundbreaking at the southwest corner of U.S. 31 and Ind. 32, just off of Westfield Park Road for Hampton Inn.

The $12.2 million, four-story hotel is planned to open next spring with 93 guest rooms. Other features include an outdoor patio with a fire pit and an indoor swimming pool.

“We are honored to partner with Hilton Worldwide in bringing the Hampton Inn franchise to Westfield”, said Chris Wilkes, partner and senior vice president with Holladay Properties. “With Westfield’s ever-expanding corporate base, along with the hotel’s location along the new U.S. 31, we feel that this hotel is well positioned to service the key business travel segment. Additionally, this Hampton Inn will benefit strongly from the significant travel and tourism activity generated by Grand Park.”

Holladay Construction Group will serve as the general contractor during construction.

“The new U.S. 31 project, combined with the success of Grand Park, has transformed Westfield’s economic structure,” Mayor Andy Cook said. “Last year, there were nearly 62,000 hotel-room nights booked in central Indiana because of Grand Park. Developments like this Hampton Inn will be able to keep some of those visitor dollars in Westfield.”
