Needles, California: Groundbreaking ceremony for the new Hampton Inn and Suites is scheduled for next week.
The new Hampton Inn and Suites is being built on the former site of the El Rancho Motel at 1803 Needles Highway (Route 66) between O Street and River City Pizza Company.
Hampton Inn and Suites are a brand of hotels trademarked by Hilton Worldwide, and are independently owned and operated by franchisees, though a few are managed by Hilton.
The new Hampton Inn and Suites will be a three stories hotel with 80 rooms, a meeting room and laundry facilities all accessible from the inside not from the outside as other local hotels, and will have an outdoor swimming pool for the hotel and 83 parking spaces for the hotel with associated landscaping, and the new Hampton Inn and Suites is said to bring between 30 to 50 new jobs to the community.
Needles City Manager Rick Daniels has been announcing since Tuesday, January 19th, 2021 at City of Needles meetings and to ZachNews that groundbreaking for the new Hampton Inn and Suites will be on Tuesday, February 16th, 2021, but during Tuesday’s Needles City Council Meeting, Needles City Manager Rick Daniels said that the groundbreaking will occur at 12:00 p.m. PT on Thursday, February 18th, 2021.
ZachNews will possibly be at the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Hampton Inn and Suites, and plan to broadcast live at ZachNews on Facebook.
Unless changed at the last minutes and without notice, the City of Needles said that construction will began right after the ceremony, with the hopes for the new Hampton Inn and Suites to be completed by April 2022.
