Walpole, MA – Construction work is underway on a new Home2 Suites by Hilton in Walpole. Jiten Hotel Management (JHM) of Brockton teamed up again with longtime partner PROCON of Manchester, N.H., who is the designer and construction manager for the 67,340sf hotel. Home2 Suites is making its debut in the Bay State and is Hilton’s first new brand launch in 30 years.
Distinctive features include a lighted glass rooftop beacon, an adjacent single-story swimming pool, a Spin2 Cycle laundry/fitness room combo, and an expansive community space. The exterior will offer a barbecue pit patio area for guests to cook on the grill or relax together.
Arriving guests will be welcomed by an attractive trellis-covered entrance flanked by a seating area and fire pit. Inside, the first-floor design centers around the “Oasis,” a community gathering space that emerges from the front desk into a comfy and brightly decorated seating area. A host of other complimentary amenities will be offered, such as a 24×7 sundries market, a 600sf meeting room, breakfast buffet area, and a 24×7 business center that will include complimentary Wi-Fi. Parking will be available for 118 vehicles.
The four-story, 118 king and double-queen guestrooms will all contain another of the brand’s unique features known as the “working wall,” a kitchenette-to-desk-to-closet component along the same wall. Also included in each room is a state-of-the-art kitchen with a sink, full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave, and a coffee maker.
Preliminary site work began in January 2017 with the preparation of the soils followed by foundation placement that was completed in March. The exterior design is a combination of Hardi panels, Ground–Face CMU and Nichiha cement siding. Current work includes the installation of structural steel. The project is expected to be complete in late 2017.
