Groundbreaking held for Town Madison’s fourth hotel
TOWN MADISON – A groundbreaking ceremony was held for another piece in the Town Madison puzzle on Thursday.
Business and city leaders gathered with developers of Town Madison to break ground on the new Hilton Garden Inn, on the west end of the development at 145 Graphics Drive.
The $16 million hotel will have 102 rooms, four floors, with a full-service restaurant and bar. Room service and a fitness center will be available. It is scheduled to open in late 2020.
Hilton Garden Inn has more than 850 properties in 48 countries.
It is being developed by PHD Hotels Inc., which also developed the adjacent Home2Suites.
The Hilton Garden Inn is the fourth hotel announced for Town Madison. Besides the Home2Suites, the avid hotel will also sit close to the Hilton Garden Inn. Margaritaville will be located by Toyota Field and is scheduled to open in 2021.
Madison Chamber of Commerce director Pam Honeycutt was joined at the groundbreaking ceremony by local officials Madison Mayor Paul Finley and Madison County Commission Chairman Dale Strong, along with Town Madison developer Louis Breland and PHD Hotels CEO Tom Hunt.
Breland spoke at the groundbreaking about what is to come in Town Madison. “There are many more announcements coming in the very near future,” he said. “This is just the beginning.”
Breland spokesperson and developer Joey Ceci said restaurants and small retail businesses will be under construction at Town Madison within the next couple of months.
