US-based McNeill Hotel Company has expanded its geographic footprint with the acquisition of three hotels in the Mountain states, adding to the company’s growing portfolio.

The three hotels include a 110-room Homewood Suites in Boise, Idaho; 107-room Hilton Garden Inn in Twin Falls, Idaho; and a 106-room Hampton Inn and Suites in Salt Lake City – West Jordan, Utah.

Homewood Suites is situated less than a mile off I-84 near the main route into Downtown Boise and Boise State University and located adjacent to the Boise Spectrum, Boise’s largest theatre complex.

The hotel also features a recently upgraded fitness centre with new Precor equipment, a heated indoor swimming pool and spa, a business centre and a billiard room.

As part of the plans to renovate the hotel, McNeill intends to upgrade the lobby and public spaces and replace soft and select goods in the guestrooms, including installing 42” televisions and stainless steel kitchen appliances.

Built in 2009, the Hilton Garden Inn in Twin Falls offers panoramic views of the Valley’s Snake River Canyon and convenient access to Shoshone Falls and Perrine Bridge.

The hotel features more than 2,700ft² of meeting space across three rooms, a 24-hour business centre and fitness centre and an indoor pool and whirlpool.

It is reported that at Hilton Garden Inn, McNeill will add lunch to the menu for the on-site Garden Grille, which had previously served only two breakfast and dinner.

It will also add an outdoor terrace area, upgrade fitness centre equipment, install 40” televisions in the guest rooms and replace soft goods in the guestrooms, corridors and meeting rooms. 

McNeill Hotel Company president and COO Mark Ricketts said: "We see these acquisitions a major step in our company’s evolution.

"With the  Hilton  Garden  Inn  we  will  be  adding  a  new  flag  to  our  portfolio  and  expansion  into  the Mountain states of Idaho and Utah greatly expands our geographic presence.”

The Hampton Inn & Suites sits just south of Downtown Salt Lake City and is adjacent to Jordan Landing, a 500-acre master-planned community with retail, office and residential units.

At this hotel, McNeill intends to upgrade the lobby and public area’s soft  goods, make cosmetic improvements to the exterior, replace fitness room equipment and update soft and select case goods in the guestrooms.

McNeill Hotel Company CEO Phillip McNeill said: "In only 18 months we have more than doubled the size of our portfolio, which is now up to 17 hotels.

"The growth has been the result of both acquisitions and new construction and we will continue to look for strategic opportunities on both fronts as we look ahead to 2018.”
