PROCON Architect and CM
Worcester, MA – A new Hampton Inn & Suites hotel is currently under way in downtown Worcester at Gateway Park. The 100-room hotel, located at 65 Prescott Street, is being developed by XSS Hotels.
PROCON of Manchester, N.H. is the architect and construction manager for the design-build hotel, which will be managed by Colwen Management of Portsmouth, N.H.
The 60,000sf hotel will offer king and queen rooms and studio suites. The suites will have a sitting area with a pull-out sofa sleeper and a wet bar with a refrigerator and microwave. All the guest rooms will offer complimentary high-speed Internet access, and wireless Internet access will be available in the lobby. The public areas of the hotel will include a business center, breakfast area for the hotel’s complimentary breakfast, a Suite Shop selling snack and sundry items, an indoor pool, and fitness room. The hotel will also have a conference room with flexible space.
The impressive five-story building will be clearly visible when driving through Worcester on I-290. The building’s first floor will house the hotel’s lobby and common rooms and offer covered parking for eight vehicles.
Construction of the new hotel began in February 2015, and PROCON has scheduled a February 2016 completion date.
“We are excited to be developing this beautiful new hotel in Worcester’s Gateway Park,” stated Leo Xarras of XSS Hotels. “Our goal is to provide our guests with a very positive hospitality experience by providing exceptional service in a comfortable upscale setting.”
The Hampton Inn & Suites is one of several design build hotel projects XSS Hotels has developed in the City of Worcester including The Courtyard by Marriott on Grove Street and the Residence Inn by Marriott on Plantation Street.
