Odyssey Hotels is seeking approval to convert Glendale’s Radisson Hotel into a Fairfield Inn on the same property where the Chicago-based company is building a Residences Inn by Marriott hotel.
The Radisson Hotel, 7065 North Port Washington Road, is closing at the end of the year. Rachit Dhingra, with Odyssey Glendale Hotel, LLC, will ask the Glendale Plan Commission Tuesday to approve a plan to convert the hotel into a 86-room Fairfield Inn, which is a franchise brand of Marriott International.
Odyssey Glendale Hotel is currently constructing the Residence Inn by Marriott, an 83-room hotel at 7003 North Port Washington Road, which is expected to open in May.
The planned conversion of the Radisson Hotel to a Fairfield would include a new lobby at the south end of the existing building and complete renovation of the existing hotel rooms.
Odyssey would continue to operate the restaurant and banquet facility, but would do so autonomously from the Fairfield in. The owner has not yet determined future use of the building that currently includes the atrium, ballroom and swimming pool, according to plans submitted to the city. Future use will be determined once both hotels are open.
The plan commission has scheduled a public hearing for the matter on Jan. 3.
