Renovation of a 90-room Sleep Inn and Suites by Choice near Eppley Airfield is almost finished.
The renovation is focused on guestrooms, from walls and flooring to lighting, mattresses, bedding, and decor. The common areas of the hotel were renovated last year, said Les Kinseth, president of Iowa-based hotel development and management company Kinseth Hospitality Companies, which is heading the renovation in partnership with Supertel Hospitality, Inc.
Kinseth said the cost of the renovation was a "substantial investment" and will be completed by the end of the month.
Construction is also underway on another KHC property near Village Pointe Shopping Center. Kinseth said that project, a Hilton2 Home Suites extended stay hotel, is framed and ready for plumbing and electrical work, with an expected opening around the end of May.
