Ground has been broken in Philadelphia on what will be the largest Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel.
The eight-story, 246-suite hotel will be located next to the Pennsylvania Convention Center. It will have nearly 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space and more than 2,000 square feet of meetings space.
The extended-stay hotel is scheduled to open next summer.
Hilton has seven Home2 Suites hotels in the U.S., and nine under construction. Hilton debuted the brand in March 2011 with the opening of the Home2 Suites in Fayetteville, N.C.
