BOLINGBROOK – The Bolingbrook Village Board recently gave the green light to a five-story, 129-room Hilton Garden Inn and Suites to be built at 135 Remington Blvd.
Proposed by Bolingbrook resident Suhas Patel at a village board meeting on Aug. 13, the Hilton will be developed on roughly eight acres and offer hotel suites, an indoor pool, a full-service restaurant and lounge, and ample conference room and banquet space.
Construction crews will break ground soon and the hotel is expected to open in March 2015.
During the village board proceedings and subsequent plan commission meeting, Patel, who also owns the neighboring Hampton Inn at 165 Remington Blvd. and a 7-Eleven convenient store at 398 Schmidt Road, revealed artist renderings of the new Hilton, describing its multi-use benefits.
The project will cost $14 million and create at least 50 jobs, Patel said. In addition to the 129 hotel rooms, the 5,100 square feet of conference room space will be able to host meetings or parties of 350 to 400 people, he added.
The Hilton’s conference and banquet space gives the Bolingbrook community another reception option, boasting a capacity between the Holiday Inn, which can hold up to 250 people, and the Bolingbrook Golf Club, which can cater to parties of more than 700 attendees.
The Hilton Garden Inn and Suites will provide the village with an excellent mid-sized reception and banquet option, Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar said at the Aug. 13 village board meeting. The hotel’s central location and accommodations will be a valuable asset to Bolingbrook, he added.
The Hilton Garden Inn and Suites proposal unanimously passed through the plan commission and village board.
