MECHANICSBURG, Pa., May 30, 2019—Officials of Shaner Silver Spring Hotel, LLC, a partnership between Shaner Hotels, an award winning, international hotel owner, operator and developer, and Quarryville, Pa.-based Paul Risk Construction, a fourth generation, family-owned construction company, today announced the groundbreaking of the 108-room Fairfield by Marriott Mechanicsburg in Pa. The hotel is expected to open during the third quarter of 2020. Pennian Bank, based in Mifflintown, Pa., provided the construction financing.

“The Fairfield Inn by Marriott Mechanicsburg meets all of our qualifications for an ideal portfolio addition: a strongly branded property in a market with barriers to new entry and with which we’re intimately familiar,” said Plato Ghinos, president, Shaner Hotels. “This property is our fourth new hotel development in the greater Harrisburg area. The site will be improved with a fully entitled restaurant pad site for a future 175-plus seat restaurant and has additional capacity for an extended-stay hotel or office building. The location serves as a convenient hospitality hub for the corporate demand within the Mechanicsburg, Carlisle Pike and Harrisburg regions.”

Located at 503 Winding Creek, the planned five-story hotel will feature complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, 24/7 fitness center and indoor pool. Guests also may enjoy a complimentary, daily breakfast buffet.
