McNeill Hotel Investors (McNeill) announced today the Grand Opening of the 130-room, select service, all-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton Athens, adding to the companys growing portfolio and expanding its presence in the Athens, Georgia market. The announcement was made by Phillip McNeill, Jr., the companys chief executive officer.

Developed, owned, and managed by McNeill Hotel Company, Homewood Suites by Hilton Athens features a combination of one- and two-bedroom suites that include fully equipped kitchens and separate living and sleeping areas. The property offers 936 square feet of flexible space for meetings and social events as well as upgraded guest amenities that include an expanded exercise room, outdoor seating area with grills and fire pit, and media room with billiard table and bar area. The hotel also offers a full hot full breakfast each day and guests can also enjoy a complimentary evening social on weekdays.

Located at 750 E. Broad Street in historic downtown Athens, Homewood Suites by Hilton Athens is the closest hotel in the area to Sanford Stadium, the home of the University of Georgias football team. It is also close to the Classic Center - northeast Georgias premier conference, convention and performing arts center, the Georgia Theatre, and downtown Athens.

We are proud to celebrate the Grand Opening of this ground-up new build for our growing hotel portfolio, which extends our capabilities in property development, McNeill said. Moreover, it builds on our great experience with extended stay properties, including with Hilton as a valued brand partner.

Athens has proven to be an excellent market for McNeill, added Mark Ricketts, the companys president and chief operating officer. This new property features multiple demand drivers, as it serves the local convention and university markets, as well as leisure tourists experiencing the music scene.

The acquisition by McNeill Hotel Investors was facilitated by capital recently secured by McNeill through New York-based Almanac Realty Investors LLC.

McNeill Hotel Investors and McNeill Hotel Company now own and manage 20 select service hotels across the Southeast, the Midwest and Mountain West States, with several additional properties in the acquisition and development pipeline.
