A Michigan hotelier has opened a new 66,332-square-foot hotel in the region.
The four-story, 105-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites is open at 1315 Westgate Dr. in Kalamazoo, according to Bloomfield Hills-based Amerilodge Group, a hotel ownership and management company, last week.
“With all of the economic growth happening in Kalamazoo, this is the ideal time to open up a hotel to cater to the travelers in need of lodging accommodations,” said Steve Aldridge, VP of sales and marketing, Amerilodge Group.
The hotel features the brand’s newest design.
The rooms include a flexible workspace, storage units with horizontal luggage storage and moveable seating.
Additional hotel amenities include an indoor swimming pool, exercise room, valet laundry service, Wi-Fi and fax and copy services.
The hotel also has over 1,014 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 100 people.
The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Kalamazoo West is expected to create more than 30 jobs.
Amerilodge Group owns and operates 22 hotels in Michigan, four in Indiana and one in Ohio.
