The 21-story, 382-room hotel at the corner of 15th and Stout Street is starting to go vertical. In addition to the building going vertical, we have some additional details on the project. This dual-branded hotel will be operated by Hilton with both their Home2 Suites and Tru brands under the same roof. It will not be the first dual-branded hotel as it is just a block away from the Le Meridien/AC Hotel and just down the street from the Hyatt House/Hyatt Place.

Currently, the concrete structure is up two stories with work beginning on the third. As a refresher, floors 2-6 will provide vehicle parking vehicle parking, floor 7 will have pre-function and meeting space and some guest rooms, and the remaining guest rooms will reside on floors 8-21.

Here are two more vantage points of the project from a little higher up.

It’s exciting to see another parking lot bite the dust, especially on 15th Street which is riddled with surface lots.
