SpringHill Suites- Austin/Cedar Park Will Begin Development
- Oct 06, 2014
The hospitality segment of Austin is preparing to welcome a new hotel. Worth Hotels LLC announced the development of SpringHill Suites – Austin/Cedar Park that will be located at 1110 Discovery Blvd. in Cedar Park. Worth Hotels will be the developer and will operate the hotel after completion. Opening is estimated for the first quarter of 2016.
SpringHill Suites by Marriott will have 86 spacious rooms designed for an affordable price. A full bar and a meeting space of approximately 1,500 square feet are part of the design. The outdoor patio, pool & hot tub will be directly connected to the City of Cedar Park hike/bike trail, overlooking the lake behind the hotel. An outdoor gathering area of approximately 3,000 square feet under/around the old oak trees will work as space for a private event, or as the secluded place where guests can socialize at the end of the day.
Doug Denman, President of Worth Hotels says he is “excited to enter the Cedar Park market with a SpringHill Suites by Marriott. We really like the Cedar Park market and believe there is a need for an upper-moderate all-suites hotel that delivers the space, and the stylish, inspiring design offered by SpringHill Suites, all while delivering local flavor that will make this property unique to Cedar Park.”
The development plan considers building to minimize long-term costs and to reduce impact on local resources. Solar panels will be installed on the roof that will generate a portion of the electricity needed by the hotel. LED lighting, good insulation, and heating/cooling controls are meant to reduce energy use. Furthermore, low flow water fixtures will be installed and the greywater will be used for landscape irrigation to reduce gallons of water used to operate the property.
“We will use a combination of some or all of these solutions in order to use fewer resources and reduce long-term cost,” Denman added.
The architect for the project will be Wichita Falls-based Bundy, Young, Sims and Potter, Inc.
