The hotel market in Dearborn is staying active with the announcement that two more hospitality chains will be opening hotel locations in the city.
The Dearborn Zoning Board of Appeals recently approved plans for a Holiday Inn Express and a Staybridge Suites to be constructed on vacant land near the south side of Michigan Avenue, next to the ramp to southbound Telegraph Road, according to the Dearborn Press & Guide.
The land previously housed Showcase Cinemas and a Wendy’s Old-Fashioned Hamburgers.
The newspaper reports that the hotels will be managed by A & M Hospitality Management. The Holiday Inn Express will have 109 rooms and Staybridge Suites will have 103 rooms. Each building will be four stories tall. A date for the groundbreaking on the hotels has not been announced.
The planned hotels are part of a boom in the hospitality business in Metro Detroit. Country Inn & Suites is opening its location at 24555 Michigan Ave. later this month pending no construction delays.
Roseanne Swanson, a spokeswoman for the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, said amenities include 100 guest rooms, meeting rooms, a fitness area, indoor heated pool, continental breakfast bar, complimentary high-speed Internet, and an airport shuttle for guests traveling to the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
Dearborn is already home to several hotels, including The Adoba (formally the Hyatt Regency), The Henry, The Dearborn Inn, DoubleTree Suites, Victory Inn, Comfort Inn, Red Roof Inn, and America's Best Value Inn, among others.
