Extended Stay America will be Shamin group’s fourth lodging in the city

COLONIAL HEIGHTS - Colonial Heights will soon be home to another new hotel, Extended Stay America.

The new hotel will consist of 80-90 rooms and will be built adjacent to the newly-built and soon-to-open Sedona Taphouse.

Shamin Hotels has submitted its preliminary site plan and is still in the process of estimating the cost of the project. Economic Development Director Karen Epps notes the building process should begin in the first quarter of 2019.

“It’s going to be a nice hotel, a great addition to what we already have in the city since the hotels seem to be doing well with the economy,” Epps said.

Once built, Extended Stay will be the fourth hotel in Colonial Heights owned by Shamin. Others include the Hilton Garden Inn at Southpark, the Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn.

Shamin, based in Chester, owns and operates 45 hotels in central, southern and Tidewater Virginia; and 10 in New York, Colorado, North Carolina and Maryland.
