Groundbreaking held Thursday at site of Nulu hotel

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new hotel is coming to Louisville's Nulu neighborhood. 

On Thursday First Hospitality Group and Weyland Ventures announced construction has begun on a new Home2 Suites by Hilton. The hotel will be on the corner of Hancock and Jefferson Streets.

The 5-story hotel will have 100 rooms for people to stay overnight or even short term.

Officials say that's a perk for those who visit or work at Louisville's Regional Medical district, and Nulu was the perfect place for an expansion.

"It's really -- I don't want to say business friendly attitude of the city -- but the vibrancy of Louisville, the opportunity that we see here makes us want to be a part of this community," said First Hospitality Group Chairman Stephan Schwartz.

The Home2 Suites will also feature a Spin-2-Cycle fitness center. Construction is scheduled to be complete by June of next year.
