Hampton Inn & Suites Hotel

1001 Commerce St. - 2017

 

This eight story hotel opened on October 19, 2017 and was built on the site of the old Greyhound Bus Terminal/United Way Building (1951). That building was demolished in 2016 to construct the hotel. The Hampton Inn & Suites Hotel was designed by Gary Brink & Associates from Middleton, Wisconsin. The building has three levels of parking on part of the first floor, the second, and the third floors. This garage is hidden from view by the lobby, and screening. The rooms start on the 4th floor and continue to the 8th. The hotel section of the building is "U" shaped and the building occupies nearly a full city block. The hotel has 245 guest rooms. There are several different materials on the building, which creates a broken facade. Portions of this facade are also recessed with sun screening at the top of the building. At night, LED strips run around the top and at the sides of the curtain wall system located at the corner facing the intersection of 9th and Commerce. There are two large blade signs on the building, one on the Commerce Street facade, and the other on the 9th Street facade. The building adds a lot of light to this portion of downtown.
