CA: Builder pitches Collierville hotel by Carriage Crossing
Members of the Grant homebuilding family are proposing a new four-story, 110-room hotel by the Carriage Crossing shopping center in Collierville.
The company already owns the Courtyard by Marriott at the shopping center, and it aims to build a second hotel on Collierville Road between Tenn. 385 and the shopping center, Carey Grant said.
Guests could walk from the hotel to restaurants and shopping at Carriage Crossing.
Carey Grant said the family expected a competitor to build a hotel in the area sooner or later, so they decided to go ahead and build one first. The hotel will be branded as a Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott. It will cater more to leisure travelers than does the Courtyard by Marriott, he said.
“Well for me, it’s an exciting product for our market as we continue to grow our corporate headquarters business,” said Duncan. He said the hotel could serve consultants, clients and vendors for companies such as FedEx, which has a big information technology center in town.
