A new hotel part of the Cornerstone of Centerville development had its grand opening last week.
Hilton Home2 Suites is the latest business in Cornerstone, a mixed-use development accommodating retail, restaurant, professional and medical offices.
Officials conducted a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the hotel, located at 5161 Cornerstone North Blvd., near the Costco Wholesale Store.
Mayor Brooks Compton and Centerville City Council members were in attendance, according to Community Resources Coordinator Maureen Russell Hodgson.
A standard studio suite is one large room containing living, cooking and sleeping areas. The one-bedroom suite is a little larger, with a wall separating the bedroom from the kitchen and living areas, according to information provided by Hilton.
The kitchen area includes a refrigerator, microwave oven dishwasher, flatware, microwavable cookware, coffeemaker and toaster.
When the hotel was proposed in 2016, some neighbors spoke up during a public hearing and expressed concerns about how it would affect the dynamics of their neighborhood. Some worried about noise and traffic, others talked about blocked views.
Many stores and businesses have come into the Cornerstone of Centerville development, including Cabela’s, First Financial Bank, Chick-fil-A, Panda Express and Kroger.
