|Livingston, New Jersey - October 24, 2006 -- The Briad Group of Livingston,
New Jersey will open a new three-story, 113-unit, Homewood Suites by
Hilton (R) in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. All 113 suites offer full
state of the art kitchen facilities, featuring all stainless steel appliances
and ceramic cooktop stoves. The newly constructed hotel is owned
by Briad Lodging Group Bethlehem, LLC and managed by Briad Hospitality
Management, LLC of Livingston, NJ.
"Allentown/Bethlehem is a strong hotel market in need of additional upscale extended stay hotels like Homewood Suites and we are thrilled to be opening in the area," said Hotel General Manager Robert McDevitt. "We are the ideal place for those travelers who are away from home or office for several days but still need to have all of the benefits, such as a full kitchen, executive business center and complimentary high-speed Internet access," McDevitt said.
In addition to the Bethlehem hotel, construction is well underway on
three other hotels, scheduled to open in 2007: a 100-room Marriott Residence
Inn in Neptune, NJ, 108-room Residence Inn in Mt. Laurel, NJ and
113-room Courtyard by Marriott in Wall Township, NJ.
