Downtown Monroe announced that MRI Hotels, a top tier chain that owns and operates Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn hotels, is expected to break ground on a new 80-room hotel in Monroe later this year.
“MRI Hotels has announced plans to build a new hotel in Monroe, GA,” Sadie Krawczyk, economic development specialist for the City of Monroe announced Wednesday. “The 80+ room hotel is slated to break ground later this year and will include a swimming pool, meeting center, fitness center, laundry facility, snack shop, free wifi and breakfast.”
Krawczyk said the particular hotel brand is not yet being announced.
“MRI Hotels currently owns and operates Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn hotels in the southeast with a focus on developing in small markets with growing economies that are underserved by the existing supply of hotels,” Krawczyk said in a press release. “The company most recently opened a Hampton Inn and Suites in Forest City, NC in December of 2017 and is currently under construction on another Hampton Inn & Suites in Lenoir, NC.”
