Sycamore Investment Group, a company based in Greenville County, has filed plans with the Greenville Design Review Board for a new Homes2 Suites hotel at the corner of Elford and North Main streets downtown.
According to plans, the proposed five-story hotel will have 117 rooms, a three-story parking garage and an outdoor pool.
The hotel will be managed by Sycamore Investment Group and will be “the first all-suite hotel in downtown,” said Yatish Patel with Sycamore Investment Group.
Homes2 Suites is a mid-tier, extended-stay hotel by Hilton. The Hilton website says the hotels have “unexpected style, enhanced flexibility, expanded spaces, and differentiated amenities, to create a more forward-thinking extended-stay experience.”
Homes2 Suites usually have saline swimming pools, integrated laundry and exercise facilities, patio grills and walking paths. However, the initial plans submitted do not show any of these amenities and Patel said that final design approval from Hilton is still pending.
Construction is expected to begin in May 2014, said Patel, and will take approximately 14 months to complete.
Another new hotel at River’s Edge was also announced this week.
The plans will be reviewed at the Dec. 5 City of Greenville Design Review Board meeting.
