The new hotel will be located right next to the Great Wolf Lodge and Embassy Suites.
InTown Suites has 189 locations in 22 states and is now adding the UpTown Suites brand to its mix.
“This product will be more upscale than InTown properties and appeal to a broad mix of business travelers, contract workers, families in transition and vacationers, I am pleased to say that our first UpTown location will be built in Concord!” commented Collier Daily, VP of sales and marketing, at the recent groundbreaking ceremony.
The Concord location is the multi-billion dollar company’s first location for their new brand – they hope to have about 30 locations started within the next year.
The decision to build their first ‘Uptown Suites’ between Concord Mills and the Speedway seems like a true no-brainer, since Concord Mills is one of the biggest tourist attractions in NC, and given that the Charlotte Motor Speedway holds over 300 days worth of events with over 1.1 million visitors pouring in on an annual basis.
