More hotels planned near airport

The list of proposed hotel developments near Mitchell International Airport keeps growing.

Syner G Hotel Development, owned by Realtor John Golitz, plans to develop a 119-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel and a 105-room TownePlace Suites hotel on a site south of College Avenue and east of Howell Avenue in Oak Creek. Both Courtyard and Towne Place are brands of Bethesda, Md.-based Marriott International Inc.

Also, CM Residence Group LLC, a hospitality investment company that is a wholly owned subsidiary of Newport Beach, Calif.-based Chase Merit LP, plans to build a four-story, 122-room Value Place hotel at 6511 S. 13th St., near Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee.

Value Place is a Wichita, Kan.-based chain of extended stay, economy hotels. There are more than 60 Value Place locations across the nation.

Value Place also has proposed a 121-room hotel at 9315 S. 13th St. in Oak Creek.

The proposed Value Place hotel in Milwaukee may include a restaurant, according to documents filed with the City of Milwaukee.

CM Residence Group has invested in 24 Value Place hotels. Its first two opened last year and six more are expected to open in the first quarter of this year.

Rental at Value Place hotels is by the week only, typically $169 to $229 per week.

Other developers that are planning to build new hotels near the airport include:

Madison-based hospitality real estate developer and manager Raymond Management Co. plans to build two hotels on the site of St. Stephen Catholic Church at 5880 S. Howell Ave. The company has not indicated what the hotel flags will be. However, according to the company’s web site, Raymond Management has 18 hotels, and 15 of them are Hampton Inn or Hampton Inn & Suites hotels. The church would be demolished to make way for the hotels. Both hotels will have between 125 and 150 rooms. The first hotel will be built on the north side of the property and the second hotel will be built on the south side of the property and will include a full service restaurant and between 3,000 and 4,000 square feet of meeting/function space.

West Bend-based American Design & Build Inc. plans to build an 88-room Sleep Inn & Suites hotel northeast of South 6th Street and West Layton Avenue.

Wisco Hotel Group plans to build a 99-room Candlewood Suites hotel and a 122-room Fairfield Inn hotel on the east side of South 13th Street, just south of College Avenue, in Oak Creek. Wisco Hotel Group also owns the Comfort Suites hotel just to the north of the site for the Candlewood Suites and Fairfield Inn. The company wants to combine the three hotels to create the Oak Creek Hospitality Park at the Milwaukee Airport. Candlewood Suites is an extended stay brand of Windsor, U.K.-based InterContinental Hotels Group and Fairfield Inn is a Marriott brand.

Jeff Fortin, city planner for Oak Creek, said other hotel developers have inquired about sites near Howell and College avenues.

"There’s still people looking for hotel land," he said.
