Rolling Hills Hospitality, a developer and operator of a number of hotels in the region, plans to build a 200-room, full-service Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites on the northwest corner of Seventh Street and Broadway. The hotel will include an indoor pool/spa, an exercise/fitness room, room service, and meeting/conference/banquet space. The hotel will create 35-40 new full-time equivalent jobs. The hotel is being designed to minimize its impact on the neighboring apartment buildings, maximize its programmed space at street level and match as closely as possible the scale of the surrounding buildings.
To facilitate the construction of the hotel, and address a shortage of parking in the northeastern quadrant of downtown, the City is preparing to replace and expand the Seventh Street Garage.
