An Avid Hotel, a new franchised brand by InterContinental Hotels Group, is coming to Hanover County.
Construction has started on the four-story hotel on U.S. 1 just south of where Sliding Hill Road ends. The hotel would be just tucked between a Taco Bell restaurant and the Colonial trailer park.
The 90-room hotel should open in the first quarter of 2020, said Hiren J. Patel, managing partner for Lotus Hospitality LLC.
The Avid Hotel brand launched in 2017 by InterContinental Hotels Group, which also includes Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Candlewood Suites and other hotel brands. Three Avid Hotels are opened in Oklahoma with more planned across the country.
One is planned for Chesterfield County. B.K. Hospitality LLC, another franchise owner, plans to build an Avid Hotel on Willis Road near Interstate 95.
