City of Belton approves new Fairfield Inn & Suites
Four-story, 83-room hotel located north of Highway 58 expected to open in 2018
BELTON, MO—September 27, 2017 – The City of Belton has approved a new 83-room, four-story Fairfield Inn & Suites located just north of Highway 58 between Mullen Road and Interstate 49.
Salina Hotel Corp. will begin construction by the end of the year on the 48,000- square foot hotel project, with a targeted opening by the end of 2018. The project includes construction of a new east-west access road adjacent to existing retail development to the south. The new road will be constructed with funds from a newly established Community Improvement District.
“Belton is fast becoming the business epicenter of Cass County, which is experiencing a surge in both residential and commercial development,” Belton City Manager Alexa Barton said. “Located just west of Interstate 49 and south of the CenterPoint Intermodal Center, this hotel project will serve an unmet need for quality hotel space in Belton and the surrounding region.”
Shamir Bhakta, Salina Hotel Corp. regional manager, said the hotel development firm believes the project will be a great fit for Belton as well as Cass County.
“We look forward to developing the Fairfield Inn & Suites Belton and building a great asset to the community. Salina Hotel Group is excited to do business in Belton due to the recent and expected growth in the area,” Bhakta said.
Project partners include City of Belton, Mo.; Belton Economic Development; and Salina Hotel Corp. Additional retail pad sites are available just west of the hotel project.
