Hilton is building a Home 2 Suites extended-stay hotel on Walton Way Extension behind Savannah River Banking Co.
The hotel will cover 60,000 square feet, according to Jeff Castleberry, the director of acquisitions and development for a management company called The Generation Cos.
Construction should begin within the next 30 days and take about one year to complete.
Castleberry said the Augusta area is a prime location for an extended-stay hotel, because many customers are from the medical, military, business and construction sectors.
“Our demand comes from many places, from military to people opening up and training for a new retail store,” he said. “We did our homework, and we feel like Augusta continues to grow.”
The hotel is expected to have 123 rooms.
Hilton has more than 60 Home 2 Suites across the country.
