Four-story, 83-room hotel located north of Highway 58 expected to open in 2019
BELTON, MO—March 15, 2017 – Salina Hotel Group will break ground on its new 83-room, four-story Fairfield Inn & Suites at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, March 16, 2018. The 48,000-square foot hotel will be located just north of Highway 58 between Mullen Road and Interstate 49 in Belton, Missouri.
“This new hotel is in response to ongoing residential and commercial growth in Belton and surrounding Cass County,” Belton City Manager Alexa Barton said. “Located just west of Interstate 49 and south of the CenterPoint Intermodal Center, this hotel project will serve an unmet need for quality hotel space in Belton and the surrounding region.”
The project includes construction of a new east-west access road adjacent to existing retail development to the south. The new road will be constructed with funds from a newly established Community Improvement District. Additional retail pad sites are available just west of the hotel, which is targeted for an early 2019 completion.
“We look forward to developing the Fairfield Inn & Suites Belton and being a great asset to the community. The recent and expected growth in the area, have us excited about doing business here. We believe this hotel project will be great fit for Belton and the surrounding community,” said Shamir Bhakta, regional manager for Salina Hotel Corp.
Project partners include City of Belton, Mo.; Belton Economic Development; and Salina Hotel Corp.
