COLO­NIAL HEIGHTS Colo­nial Heights will soon be home to an­other new ho­tel, Ex­tended Stay Amer­ica.

The new ho­tel will con­sist of 80-90 rooms and will be built ad­ja­cent to the newly-built and soon-to-open Se­dona Tap­house.

Shamin Ho­tels has sub­mit­ted its pre­lim­i­nary site plan and is still in the process of es­ti­mat­ing the cost of the project. Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Di­rec­tor Karen Epps notes the build­ing process should be­gin in the first quar­ter of 2019.

“It’s go­ing to be a nice ho­tel, a great ad­di­tion to what we al­ready have in the city since the ho­tels seem to be do­ing well with the econ­omy,” Epps said.

Once built, Ex­tended Stay will be the fourth ho­tel in Colo­nial Heights owned by Shamin. Oth­ers in­clude the Hil­ton Gar­den Inn at Southpark, the Hamp­ton Inn and Hol­i­day Inn.

Shamin, based in Ch­ester, owns and op­er­ates 45 ho­tels in cen­tral, south­ern and Tide­wa­ter Vir­ginia; and 10 in New York, Colorado, North Carolina and Mary­land.
