CULLMAN, Ala – Cullman Mayor Woody Jacobs and Cullman Economic Development Agency Director Dale Greer announced at Monday evening’s Cullman City Council meeting that Hilton Hotels plans to construct a Home2 Suites hotel along Alabama Highway 157 next to Warehouse Discount Groceries in north Cullman. The $13 million, four-story, 65,000-square-foot facility is expected to create 30 new jobs and will feature:
- “Larger than usual” guest suites including 61 rooms with king-size beds and 40 rooms with double beds
- EPA-approved water fixtures and use of many recycled materials
- A small convenience store-type market in the lobby
- All extended stay suites with in-suite kitchens
- Grilling patio and two outdoor lounges
- 1,200-square-foot conference room
- Breakfast service and dining room
- Saline pool with deck
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Pet-friendly suites
- Exercise center
According to materials provided by Hilton, “Home2 Suites by Hilton is an innovative, modern approach to the midscale, extended-stay hotel market. Targeted at today’s tech-savvy, value-oriented traveler, Home2 was developed by examining every facet of the guest experience and re-imagining these aspects in a unique and design-conscious manner. From check-in to check-out, every detail has been thoughtfully chosen to be inviting, functional and distinct. By presenting a distinct and consistent brand identity through our interior design, we strengthen and reinforce the personality of Home2 and help to educate existing and future guests about our brand’s uniquely positive attributes.”
Said Jacobs, “Dale and I met with the developer, and one of the things he pointed out- and maybe with little suggestion- is that he will use local vendors and contractors as much as he possibly can.”
The project is a joint venture between Hilton, the City of Cullman, the Cullman Economic Development Agency and the Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce. Construction is scheduled to begin later this year.
