Home2 Suites by Hilton, the award-winning mid-tier, all-suite hotel brand designed for modern business travelers and extended-stay guests, celebrated the opening of its eighth U.S. hotel with the new Jacksonville, N.C. property.
This is the brand’s second property in the state. The hotel joins seven other Home2 Suites already open in Fayetteville, N.C., Layton, Utah, Baltimore, Md., San Antonio, Texas, West Valley City, Utah, North Charleston, N.C., and Lexington Park, Md. The first two guests to check-in today received gift baskets featuring local items, courtesy of Onslow County Tourism and Hope for Warriors.
“One year ago, we opened our first Home2 Suites in North Carolina. The opening of a second Home2 Suites property in this market is a true testament to guests’ positive response; and appetite for the brand’s added value proposition and hip and humble approach,” said Bill Duncan, global head, Home2 Suites by Hilton. “Jacksonville’s close proximity to military sites, businesses and visitor attractions position this property for great success.”
The four-story, 105-suite hotel is located at 139 Circuit Lane, Jacksonville, N.C., near North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune and New River MCAS. The property, built by Onslow Hospitality, Inc., a subsidiary of CN Hotels based out of Greensboro, N.C., and managed by LBA Hospitality, includes 39 queen studio suites, 59 king studio suites and seven one-bedroom queen suites.
Neighboring local attractions include Hammocks Beach State Park, with the property located only a short drive away from the beaches of Topsail Island, Emerald Isle and Surf City.
The Jacksonville property features an indoor saline swimming pool and a scenic walking trail that winds around the property. The hotel also offers easy access to technology and bright, inviting community spaces, as well as the trademark Home2 Suites amenities standard in all properties, such as the Oasis lobby area, the in-room working wall and “Inspired Table” complimentary breakfast.
