The four-story hotel would be built near the Maxton Road and Miller Lane.

Messages were left with WoodSpring Suites seeking more details about the hotel and the project timeline.

Township Administrator Erika Vogel said the township is working with developer Krish Hospitality LLC on the design guidelines, and the developer will also need to get permit approval from the county.

The hotel chain did not return a request for comment but lists WoodSpring Suites Dayton North as one of its hotels under development.

Parent company WoodSpring Hotels describes itself as a value extended-stay hotel brand with more than 235 hotels in 35 ​states.

The fast-growing chain has been adding more hotels to its count in recent years. About 50 WoodSpring hotels have opened since July 2015, 11 are scheduled open this year and 25 more are listed as in development.

WoodSpring Hotels owns about 100 hotels, and there are also franchised locations of its WoodSpring Suites and Value Place brands.

The anticipated cost of the project was left blank on the county building permit, which was filed May 29.

While the rise of Airbnb has been disrupting the lodging industry, developers have continued to charge ahead, building new hotels in the Dayton region.

The Miller Lane area, near the Interstate 70 and 75 interchange, also recently gained a new Home2 Suites by Hilton and a Springhill Suites. Home2 Suites is designed to be a millennial focused brand with large common areas to socialize, pushing back as Airbnb grabs more market share of millennial travelers in particular.

To the south, a new five-story hotel is also proposed in Dayton near Elizabeth Place, down the street from a new Holiday Inn Express that is in the late stages of construction.
