News for the Hospitality Executive
November 16, 2011 - Embassy Suites Hotels, the upscale, all-suites hotel brand, has announced that Redstone Suites, LLC, will build a 165-suite property in the Horn Rapids Golf Community of Richland, Washington. Embassy Suites Richland is planned to be four stories with 10,000 square feet of meeting space. Construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2012, with architectural and engineering firm Butler, Rosenbury & Partners leading the build. Vesta Hospitality will manage the hotel when it opens in the fall of 2013.
"We're excited to partner with Redstone Suites, LLC, to bring the fourth Embassy Suites location to the state of Washington," said Jim Holthouser, global head of Embassy Suites Hotels and Full Service Brands, Hilton Worldwide. "The brand's upscale offering will be a great option for both business and leisure guests traveling to the Horn Rapids area."
Located on Village Parkway in the Horn Rapids Golf Community, the hotel will be surrounded by three fairways of champion golf courses and sit on a three acre vineyard, which guests can tour and explore. Grapes from the boutique vineyard will be used to make a private label wine that will be sold exclusively at the hotel and in the full-service restaurant and wine bar, Bistro. The restaurant will also serve over 160 wines from wineries located within 60 minutes of the hotel.
"We're thrilled that the hotel will also have a conference center and outdoor lawn space where we can host a variety of functions from business meetings to weddings," said Stew Stone, managing member, Redstone Suites, LLC. "We're eager to bring the exceptional customer service that Embassy Suites Hotels is known for offering to the Richland area."
In addition, the property will feature all of the signature amenities standard at any Embassy Suites hotel, including a lush atrium, free cooked-to-order breakfast each morning, a complimentary two-hour Manager's Reception* each evening, two-room suites with a separate living area, private bedroom and wet bar fitted with a microwave, mini-fridge and coffee maker.
